Shell Lubricants has launched Tellus S2 MX and Tellus S2 VX lubricants with new formulation, as part of the first leg of a global launch.
Shell Lubricants has announced the launch of Shell Tellus S2 MX and Shell Tellus S2 VX - ´The Future of Hydraulic Oils´ in India, at a function in Mumbai. India marks the first leg of the global product launch which will be followed by unveiling of the new products across world markets, viz., Singapore, Thailand, China, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Germany, Australia and France, to name a few.
The Shell Tellus range of hydraulic oils have been developed to enable equipment operators to select the fluid that will help to deliver optimum value to their operations through wear protection, long fluid life, and system efficiency. The company has invested in R&D to upgrade the previous formulations and is now ready to roll out the next generation hydraulic oils that offer significantly improved performance in these three areas. Shell Tellus S2 MX and Shell Tellus S2 VX are the upgraded formulations of the Shell Tellus S2 M and S2 V hydraulic fluids, respectively. For customers, this amounts to more reliable and efficient equipment operation, which can help reduce unplanned downtime, lower maintenance costs, and contribute to savings in total cost of ownership (TCO).
Speaking about Shell Lubricants´ latest offerings, Hans Gerdes, Shell Tellus Brand Manager, said, ¨As a global leader in hydraulic oils, at Shell, we take great pride in working closely with the leading OEMs, and developing products to fit their needs. For decades, Shell Tellus S2 hydraulic oils have set the industry benchmark for dependable lubricants that are trusted to deliver reliable equipment operations. Changes to equipment technology and operating conditions in recent years have placed increasing demands on the hydraulic oil. For example, demand for increased power output means equipment is often operating under higher loads and temperatures, which places increased stress on the hydraulic oil. In light of this, we have developed two upgraded formulations of Shell Tellus S2 hydraulic oils that deliver dramatically improved performance over the previous generation.¨ ¨At Shell Lubricants, we are committed towards offering our valuable patrons with industry-leading products and services that add value to their operations. We work closely with OEMs, academic groups and industry bodies to understand the challenges faced by our customers. With this understanding, we invest in R&D of products that can help customers to reduce ´Total Cost of Ownership´ of their equipment, by upgrading their lubrication. Over the past decade, we have worked rigorously towards upgrading our range of hydraulic oils to deliver sustainable business value for our customers and are focused towards contributing to businesses by ensuring reduced equipment downtime, lower maintenance costs, and improved equipment productivity. The new generation of Shell Tellus S2 hydraulic oils - Shell Tellus S2 MX and Shell Tellus S2 VX - are a result of our continuous efforts and we are proud to introduce these to the market. In particular, our team is pleased to have India as the first leg of this global launch,¨ added Akhil Jha, Vice President-Technical, Shell Lubricants India.
The new hydraulic oils are fully compatible with previous generation Shell Tellus S2 hydraulic oil and most other mineral oil based fluids in the market, making it easy for customers to introduce the new formulation to their equipment. The new hydraulic oil formulations have been approved by all the major pump manufacturer OEMs, including Bosch Rexroth (for Shell Tellus S2 MX only), Parker Denison, and Eaton Vickers.
The new products will be available in India starting September 2016 and will be available in pack sizes of 209 litres and 20 litres.
