Today’s more compact mobile fluid power systems have smaller hydraulic fluid reservoirs, making them more susceptible to aeration. What’s more, because the fluid volumes are smaller, reservoir residence times can be as short as 30 seconds, leaving little time for air release.
This heightens the risk of air bubbles forming in your equipment’s hydraulic systems, which, in turn, can reduce efficiency and responsiveness while increasing noise levels and boosting the likelihood of pump failure.
The good news is that the right choice of lubricant can help. Made using advanced gas-to-liquids technology, Shell Tellus S4 VE synthetic hydraulic fluid delivers up to a 6% improvement in productivity compared to regular mineral oil-based fluids while reducing energy losses from hydraulic pumps by up to 21%. It also offers a 27% shorter air release time to guard against the build-up of bubbles, thereby keeping noise pollution to a minimum.
Shell Tellus hydraulic fluids include extra-long-life synthetic technologies capable of up to four times standard life, through to reliable products for less-demanding applications.
