The Omala product benefits

Wear protection

Protecting machine gears from wear and corrosion is important for prolonging asset life and preventing breakdowns. The Shell Omala range of industrial gear oils offers protection across a wide range of applications: from the extreme-pressure rolling contacts in spur gears to the sliding contacts in worm gears. It includes Shell’s latest synthetic oils such as Shell Omala S4 GX, which offers exceptional long-life performance under extreme loads and temperatures.

Oil life

The longer an oil’s life, the less fluid maintenance your equipment requires, so it can continue to operate without interruption. The Shell Omala range enables you to match oil life to your operational needs. Customers using Shell’s standard products, such as Shell Omala S2 G, are extending oil-drain intervals by up to 200% for some applications. Customers are trading up to synthetic oils, such as Shell Omala S4 GX, for even longer oil life and other benefits.

System efficiency

Shell Omala oils can help to maintain or improve system effi ciency by protecting against the impact of oil ageing and contamination for effi cient lubrication. Advanced synthetic oils such as Shell Omala S4 WE can offer additional benefi ts by providing improved energy effi ciency compared with conventional oils.

To meet the challenges of a wide range of gear types and applications,
