Shell Omala S1 W 460 gear oils are quality refined, high viscosity mineral oils compounded with a small percentage of fatty oils.
They are particularly suitable for the lubrication of low speed enclosed gears and worm drive application. They are also suitable for the lubrication of high temperature, high pressure steam cylinders.
Enclosed industrial worm gear systems Shell Omala S1 W ISO VG 460 industrial gear oil may be used to advantage in worm gears prone to suffer extensive wear and to reduce the bulk oil temperature. Typical examples are gears running at low speed under stop-start conditions.
Steam cylinder lubrication Suitable for steam cylinder applications working under high temperature and high pressure conditions. For highly-loaded worm drives Shell Omala S1 W 460 gear oil is recommended. For industrial enclosed spur and helical gear systems the Shell Omala “G” series is recommended. For automotive hypoid gears (axles and differentials), the appropriate Shell Spirax Oil should be used.
Performance, Features & Benefits
Oil life – Maintenance saving Shell Omala S1 W ISO 460 gear oil possesses low volatility and a natural resistance to the formation of sludge or carbonaceous deposits in high temperature conditions to give consistent performance through the lubrication maintenance intervals.
