Keeping the balance between reduced equipment downtime and maintaining enhanced efficiency is vital to keeping your business moving forward.
Transmissions come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, depending on their industry usage. The biggest commonality between a transmission in a heavy-duty truck and one in an excavator – besides the challenges they face – is that they have both been meticulously engineered for that specific application. The reason being that different gearboxes, axles and transmissions operate under varying conditions. They therefore have different requirements from a lubricating fluid.
In fact, using a single transmission fluid for two distinct applications can quickly compromise either the wear protection or efficiency of your components. Sufficient wear protection helps to extend equipment life, while maintaining efficiency is vital for maximising the return on your investment. Balancing the two is where the problem lies. This is why we’ve clocked more than 20 million kilometres of field trials while testing Shell Spirax S6 GXME and Shell Spirax S6 AXME, collecting numerous vehicle and automotive component manufacturer approvals along the way.
The learnings we’ve gained over decades of testing conventional fluids are now helping us to put the future in motion. Built on the back of this expertise, Shell Lubricant Solutions has formulated a specialised range of E-Transmission Fluids that meet the specific demands of EVs and support the ongoing drive toward electric mobility and cleaner energy solutions. With the International Energy Agency anticipating between 130 and 250 million EVs on the road by 2030, we’re committed to providing ultimate protection no matter what powers your equipment.1
