Wear Protection

Excess wear can seriously compromise an air compressor’s life and efficiency. The Shell Corena range includes dedicated rotary compressor oils designed to control vane and screw wear, and oils for reciprocating compressors specifically to control cylinder, piston-ring and valve wear.

The Shell Corena range includes the latest synthetic oils for enhanced wear protection in high-temperature conditions and for extended operations.

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 Corena range helps to enable you to match oil life to your operational needs.

From mainstream oils for standard life applications to advanced synthetic oils that can last for up to three years, the Shell Corena range enables you to choose the right oil for your needs.

System Efficiency

Pressure loss in worn compressors can reduce operational efficiency and increase costs. Shell Corena oils are designed to promote system efficiency by suppressing foaming, releasing trapped air and rapidly separating out condensed water. The oils also help to reduce wear, which helps to keep your compressors working as their designers intended.
