Shell Tellus* Oil Premium


High Performance hydraulic oils
Shell Tellus* Oil Premium is high performance hydraulic oil blended with patented Shell additive technology in
combination with hydro-treated base oils to meet the requirements of the most demanding hydraulic systems.

PRODUCT
The use of patented additive technology and Group II base oils results in outstanding thermal stability
even in systems that operate under conditions of high loads and temperatures. Shell Tellus* Oil
Premium is resistant to degradation and sludge formation, which helps improve system reliability and
cleanliness. Patented anti-wear additive chemistry have proven to be very effective across the entire
range of operating conditions including low and severe duty operation as measured in a variety of piston
and vane pump tests including the demanding Denison T6C and Eaton Vickers 35VQ25. Shell Tellus*
Oil Premium exceeds the industry standards for oxidation stability as measured by the Turbine Oxidation
Stability Test (TOST). This results in extending drain oil intervals and helps minimize maintenance and
disposal costs. Shell Tellus Premium has good stability in the presence of moisture (hydrolytic stability),
which promotes longer oil life and reduces the risk of corrosion and rusting, especially in protection of
brass components. Shell Tellus* Oil Premium is suitable for ultra fine filtration, an essential requirement
in keeping any hydraulic system clean and operating at peak efficiency. Filtration properties are still
excellent even in the presence of contaminants such as water and calcium, which are known to cause
blockage of fine filters.

APPLICATIONS
Industrial hydraulic systems
Mobile hydraulic fluid power transmission systems
Circulating oil systems
General machine lubrication

PERFORMANCE BENEFITS
Excellent thermal stability - improves system reliability and cleanliness
Outstanding anti-wear - results in longer pump and component life and reduced replacement costs
Excellent oxidation resistance - reduces oil replacement cost
Excellent hydrolytic stability - provides protection from corrosion of brass components in pumps
and results in reduced replacement costs
Outstanding filterability - improves efficiency of filtration systems to reach system cleanliness targets
Excellent air-release - minimizes chances of pump cavitation and oxidation degradation of the oil
Good water separation - protects systems components from corrosion and wear
