Shell’s newly improved Gadus grease range is designed to perform even in the hottest, coldest and most extreme conditions
May 13, 2011
Shell Lubricants has launched a new and improved range of Shell Gadus greases. The range is designed to meet the challenges of the biggest, fastest and largest equipment in operation today, in some of the coldest, hottest and most extreme conditions.
The Shell Gadus range offers reliability, long lifespan, reduced component wear and superior performance as required in today’s challenging industrial operations such as those in use in the steel industry and heavy-duty mining equipment.
Shell’s international research and development team works in close co-operation with customers and equipment makers to create new greases that come with quality assurance. Shell’s expertise also combines the cost savings available from the wide range of Shell products, and offers reliable global supplies.
Bryan Nazareno, Sales Manager at Shell Lubricants explains: “Shell Gadus is the new unifying name for Shell greases, creating one of the largest global grease brands. The range of products has been developed to deliver value through enhanced wear protection, long grease life and increased system efficiency.”
Shell Gadus has also made it simpler for customers to compare product benefits and performance while taking into account other variables such as compatible thickeners, base oil viscosity, NLGI (National Lubricating Grease Institute) grade and any other special performance characteristics that make a grease suited for a specific or unique customer challenge. To aid the selection process, the range is based around key tiers, each offering increasing levels of performance and protection, including: Entry, Mainline, Premium and Advanced, which uses the latest synthetic, high-performance technology.
The re-design of the Shell Gadus range is aligned with a refresh of the entire range of Shell industrial lubricants and Shell Spirax transmission fluids which has involved removing products with overlapping applications – or whose technology had been replaced by more advanced formulas – and improving choice by adding speciality and synthetic products.
