ADVANCED, GAS-TO-LIQUIDS (GTL) TECHNOLOGY, SYNTHETIC HYDRAULIC FLUID
As the hydraulic oil moves under pressure through the lines, valves, and other hydraulic system components, energy can be lost. Shell Tellus S4 VE fluid can reduce the energy losses from hydraulic pumps by up to 21% compared with a mineral-oil-based fluid.
Modern hydraulic systems with smaller reservoirs and sumps are susceptible to fluid aeration. Air in the fluid can lead to undesirable consequences such as reduced efficiency and responsiveness, and increased susceptibility to cavitation and other harmful system malfunctions, which can cause unplanned downtime and increased maintenance costs.
