Shell Lubricants has launched a new, improved range of Shell Gadus greases. The range is designed to meet the challenges of the biggest, fastest and largest equipment in operation today, in some of the wettest, coldest, hottest and most extreme conditions.
Shell’s mining customers operate in some of the world’s coldest regions such as the Russian Far East, Siberia, and Fort McMurray in Canada. They are continuously applying grease to excavators and electric shovels at temperatures as low as -50°C.
Gordan Dillaman, global general manager for grease at Shell says, “Shell Gadus is the new unifying name for Shell greases, creating one of the largest global grease brands. The range of products has been developed to deliver value through enhanced wear protection, long grease life and increased system efficiency.”
Shell Gadus has also made it simpler for customers to compare product benefits and performance while taking into account other variables such as compatible thickeners, base oil viscosity, NLGI (National Lubricating Grease Institute) grade and any other special performance characteristics that make a grease suited for a specific or unique customer challenge. To aid the selection process, the range is based around key tiers, each offering increasing levels of performance and protection, including: Entry, Mainline, Premium and Advanced, which uses the latest synthetic, high-performance technology.
