Next Generation Shell Hydraulic Oils Coming Soon
Shell TELLUS® S2 MX and Shell TELLUS S2 VX
Dear Valued Customers,
We are excited to share that Shell Lubricants* is launching Shell TELLUS S2 MX and Shell TELLUS S2 VX hydraulic oils. These lubricants are formulated with technology designed for Group II base oils and were developed to meet the stringent demands of today’s modern hydraulic oil systems.
Shell TELLUS S2 MX and Shell TELLUS S2 VX have improvements in three key areas:
- Enhanced performance in equipment protection
Improved wear protection helps reduce frequency of equipment breakdown, leading to more reliable operations with reduced downtime, while lowering maintenance costs.
2. Efficient system operation
The condition and quality of the hydraulic fluid has a direct impact on the performance of the system. Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils are designed to enhance equipment productivity by increasing the time between maintenance cycles compared to Shell TELLUS S2 M and V oils.
3. Long oil life
Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils are enhanced with longer oil life compared to the current formulations which helps equipment operate longer. This contributes to lower maintenance costs, improved uptime, and better reliability. Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils surpass 5,000 hours in the ASTM D943 TOST test. Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils are approved or meet requirements of major OEMs and industry specifications.
Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX are visually distinct from the current Shell TELLUS S2 M and V by nature of their water white color, compared to the amber appearance of the current formulations.
Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils are compatible with existing Shell TELLUS S2 M and V. No drain or flush is required when switching to the new formulations. However, to get the full performance benefits of Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX oils, we recommend you drain the system completely or as much as feasibly possible.
We plan to help existing customers transition successfully from the current Shell TELLUS S2 M and V to the new Shell TELLUS S2 MX and VX. Beginning in August 2016, each viscosity grade will be transitioned to the new formulation as stocks are depleted.
We look forward to continuing to support you as our valued customer. We strive to bring you continued business value sustained by technology leadership in high quality lubricants.
