Wear Protection

Shell Turbo oils has robust demulsibility control such that excess water, common-place in steam turbines, can be drained easily from the lubrication system, minimising corrosion and premature wear. 

Shell Turbo oils prevent the formation of rust and guards against onset of corrosion ensuring protection for equipment following exposure to humidity or water during operation and during shut-downs, minimising maintenance.

Oil Life

The Shell Turbo oils use of inherently oxidatively stable base oils together with an effective inhibitor package provides high resistance to oxidative degradation. The result is extended  oil life, minimising the formation of aggressive corrosive acids, deposits and sludge, reducing your operating costs.

System Efficiency

The use of highly refined base oils and specific additives, resistant to attack by ammonia, minimises the possibility of damaging oil soluble/insoluble ammonia compounds being formed in the lubricant. 

Shell Turbo oils mitigate the formation of these deposits, which could impair the reliable operation of bearings and seal oil systems. The oils are formulated with a non-silicone anti-foam additive, which generally controls foam formation. This feature coupled with fast air-release from the lubricant reduces the possibility of problems such as pump cavitation, excessive wear and premature oil oxidation, giving you increased system reliability.
