Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil
GZ Industrial Supplies is the distributor and supplier of Shell Lubricants in Nigeria. Our Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil are premium quality, lead-free, extreme-pressure oils designed, primarily, for the lubrication of heavy duty industrial gears. Their high load carrying capacity and anti-friction characteristics combine to offer superior performance in gears and other industrial applications.
Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil are formulated using high viscosity index, solvent refined, base oils and incorporate a special sulphur-phosphorus additive to provide an extreme pressure performance significantly better than that provided by leaded gear oils. Shell Omala F oils are formally approved by Flender AG
Performance Features of Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil
Excellent load carrying and antifriction characteristics Reduces gear tooth and bearing wear on both steel and bronze components
Outstanding oxidation and thermal stability Withstands high thermal loading and resists the formation of sludge and other harmful products of oxidation. Extended oil life, even with bulk oil temperatures up to 100°C in certain applications
Effective corrosion inhibition Protects both steel and bronze components, even in the presence of contamination by water and solids Lead-free Operator acceptability. Reduced health risk
Wide range of viscosities Caters for the most varied and arduous industrial applications
Resistant to micro-pitting Standard setting anti micro-pitting performance to reduce the risk of premature failure through surface distress
Water shedding properties
Shell Omala F oils have excellent water separation properties. Excess water can be drained easily from lubrication systems. (Water can greatly accelerate surface fatigue on gears and bearings as well as promoting ferrous corrosion on internal surfaces. Water contamination should be avoided or removed as quickly as possible after the occurrence).
Applications of Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil
Steel gear transmissions
Industrial gear drives where a full EP performance is required
Circulating and splash lubricated systems
Shell Omala F should not be used for automotive hypoid gears. The appropriate Shell Spirax Oil should be used for this purpose.
Typical Technical Specification of Shell Omala F Industrial gear oil
Which Industrial gear oil is best for heavy-duty machines?
Frequently Asked questions
1. What is automotive gear oil?
Automotive gear oil is a specialized lubricant used in vehicles to lubricate gears and transmissions. It reduces friction, prevents wear and tear, and transfers power between gears.
2. What types of automotive gear oil are there?
Three primary types of automotive gear oil are Extreme pressure, synthetic-based, compounded gear and Rust and oxidation inhibited.
3. What is the best gear oil for heavy-duty machines?
The best gear oil for heavy-duty machines depends on the type of machine and the operating conditions. Generally, synthetic-based gear oils are recommended for heavy-duty machines as they offer superior performance, high-temperature resistance, and longer drain intervals.
4. How do I know which gear oil to use for my heavy-duty machine?
When selecting gear oil for heavy-duty machines, the manufacturer's recommendations and specifications should be followed. It is also essential to consider the operating conditions, the type of machine, and the viscosity requirements.
