Shell Omala - Gear oils
The longer an oil’s life, the less fluid maintenance your equipment requires, so it can continue to operate without interruption.
Customers using Shell’s standard products, such as Shell Omala S2 G, are extending oil-drain intervals by up to 200% for some applications. Customers are trading up to synthetic oils, such as Shell Omala S4 GX, for even longer oil life and other benefits.
With significant gearbox issues, Etermar switched to Shell Omala S4 WE oil leading to reported annual savings of US$289,400.
