Industrial Gear Oils
Shell Omala S2 GX oils are high quality extreme-pressure (EP) oils designed primarily for the lubrication of heavy duty industrial gearboxes. Their high load carrying capacity, protection against micropitting and compatibility with seals and paints, combine to offer excellent performance in enclosed gear applications.
Shell Omala S2 GX oils are formulated to reduce the risk of thermal and chemical breakdown throughout the maintenance interval. They withstand high thermal loading and resist the formation of sludge to provide extended oil life capability, even with bulk oil temperatures of up to 100°C.
Shell Omala S2 GX is formulated to have excellent load carrying capacity and micropitting performance, providing long component life.
Shell Omala S2 GX oils display a combination of excellent water shedding capability, corrosion protection and low foam forming tendency.
Water can greatly accelerate surface fatigue of gears and bearings as well as promoting ferrous corrosion on internal surfaces. Excellent corrosion protection is provided, even in
the presence of contamination by seawater and solids.
The oils are designed to minimize the potential for foaming, often experienced in applications where oil reservoir residence times are marginal.
Excellent shear stability, maintains viscosity stability throughout the service interval.
Further system efficiencies are gained through compatibility with popular seals, sealants, and engineering adhesives, to help avoid leakage. Shell Omala S2 GX is compatible with prevalent paint finishes.
Shell Omala S2 GX technology provides an effective extreme pressure (EP) formulation designed specifically for enclosed industrial gearboxes using steel-on-steel, spur, helical, or planetary gear drives, including highly loaded systems with splash or forced circulation systems.
Shell Omala S2 GX oils are also suitable for the lubrication of non-geared applications, that include bearings and other steel-on-steel components with splash or forced circulation systems.
Shell offers a wide range of products for other gear applications that have their own specific requirements.
