Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 Advanced Synthetic Industrial Gear Oil - 55 Gallon Drum
From heavy-duty machinery to enclosed systems that are difficult to maintain, Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 can provide long-lasting, clean lubrication. This advanced-formula synthetic oil is designed for heavy-duty industrial gears that are operating under harsh conditions. It reduces friction and has a high resistance to micro-pitting, making it the ideal choice for wind turbines and other inaccessible installations. Shell Omala S4 GXV 220 is also perfect for the lubrication of bearings and other parts of circulating or splash-lubricated systems.Long oil life - maintenance saving Shell Omala S4 GXV 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 has been granted. Shell Omala S4 GXV can operate successfully at bulk temperatures up to 120*C. Shell Omala S4 GXV offers the potential to significantly extend service intervals compared to conventional industrial gear oils. Excellent wear and corrosion protection Shell Omala S4 GXV 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 GX also has excellent corrosion protection, even in the presence of contamination by water and solids. Maintaining system efficiency Shell Omala S4 GXV 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 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 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.
