Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 Advanced Synthetic Industrial Gear Oil - 5 Gallon Pail
Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 is an advanced synthetic heavy duty industrial gear oil offering outstanding lubrication performance under severe operating conditions, including reduced friction, long service life and high resistance to micro-pitting for optimal gear protection.Long oil life - maintenance saving Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 is formulated using an advanced additive system in combination with specially selected synthetic base fluids to provide outstanding resistance to break down over long durations and/or high-temperature operation. This performance is recognized by Flender AG where a formal approval for 20,000 hours (four years) at 80 C usage as been granted. Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 can operate successfully at bulk temperatures up to 120 C. Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 offers the potential to significantly extend service intervals compared to conventional industrial gear oils. Excellent wear and corrosion protection Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 is formulated to have an excellent load carrying capacity and micro-pitting performance providing long component life even under shock loading conditions. These features provide benefits over mineral oil-based products in terms of gear and bearing component life. Shell Omala S4 GXV also has excellent corrosion protection, even in the presence of contamination by water and solids. Maintaining system efficiency Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 can help maintain or enhance the efficiency of industrial gear systems through improved low temperature performance and lower friction in comparison to mineral oil-based products. This provides better lubrication at low start-up temperatures.
Wind turbines and other inaccessible installations Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 is particularly recommended for certain systems where extra long life is required, maintenance is infrequent or systems are inaccessible.
Enclosed industrial gear systems
Recommended for industrial reduction gear systems operating under severe operating conditions, such as high load, very low or elevated temperatures and wide temperature variations.
Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 oils are suitable for lubrication of bearings and other components in circulating and splash-lubricated systems.
For highly loaded worm drives the Shell Omala series oils are recommended. For automotive hypoid gears, the appropriate Shell Spirax Oil should be used.
