Shell Diala S4 ZX-I previous Shell Diala B, S2 ZX-I

Premium insulating oil based on Shell GTL technology for transformers

Advantages of the Diala S4 ZX-I are:

  • + High Performance, excellent heat transfer and dielectric properties
  • + High Oxidation Stability
  • + Resistance to the effects of ageing, sludge formation and deposit build-up

Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is Shell's premium insulating oil. It has been designed to meet the needs of the latest transformer generation. The product offers a longer oil life. It is sulfur free and therefore meets existing and future copper corrosion tests. Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is made from a sulfur-free base oil produced using the Shell GTL (Gas-to-liquids) technology. 
We also know that it is used as Immersion Cooling Fluid for cooling servers as used in cloud computing, blockchain and crypto mining.
This base oil is characterized by a uniform molecular structure and a very good response of antioxidants. It is globally available and independent of different crude oil deposits due to its manufacturing process. Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is free of PCB, DBDS and Passivators.

Product Description


Features Shell Diala S4 ZX-I

+ Extended oil life

Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is an inhibited insulating oil that performs exceptionally well in industry-standard oxidation tests and provides extended oil life. It is particularly suitable for use in high-load applications.

+ transformer protection

Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is made from a sulfur-free * base oil, which significantly reduces the risk of copper corrosion, even without the addition of passivators or other additives.
All relevant copper corrosion tests are met: DIN 51353 (silver strip test), ASTM D1275 and the new tests IEC 62535 and ASTM D1275B. More reliability due to a higher flash point. * Sulfur content is below 1 ppm (detection limit of · ASTM D5185).

Moreover, we know that Shell Diala S4 ZX I is also used as Immersion Cooling Fluid for cooling servers as used in crypto mining Cloud computing and blockchain technology.

+ System Efficiency

The very good flowability at low temperatures of Shell Diala S4 ZX-I enables safe heat transfer in transformers, even at low starting temperatures.
Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is manufactured and dried by a special process, which gives it a low water content and a high breakdown voltage on delivery. This allows the use of the oil without additional "drying" in many applications.

Q: Is this oil Shell Diala S4 ZX-I is usable to insulate high frequency high voltage ferrite core SMPS transformer.

Posted On: 10/05/2020 By: Showrov

A: Our specialists have no direct experience with this application. Can answere please these questions: 1) What are the homologations that are requested? 2) Which product is currently used? 3) What volume are we talking about (they seem like very small components)? If we had an answer to these questions, we might be able to stick a product on it.
