New Shell Tellus S4 VE: The Gas-to-liquids Base Oil Advantage
Today’s modern industrial and mobile fluid power systems are designed to be smaller, lighter and utilise higher pressure to maximise efficiencies, which frequently means they have smaller hydraulic fluid reservoirs. The drawback to that is the susceptibility to aeration.
Fluid aeration reduces the efficiency and responsiveness and increases the noise of hydraulic systems. Collapsing air bubbles on the high-pressure side can also cause erosion, which can cause pump failure and unplanned downtime.
Read how high performing GTL oils, like Shell Tellus S4 VE, allows for rapid air release, proving up to 8% efficiency and a recorded 50% perceived reduction in sound.
Shell Tellus S4 VE is designed to keep machinery in optimum working condition and enhance total cost of ownership by delivering up to 6% hydraulic productivity improvement and reducing the energy losses from hydraulic pumps by up to 21% compared with a mineral oil.
