An effective lubrication program can help drive operational efficiencies and lower operating costs. As a leader in innovation and technology, Shell continually improves its products and services to help deliver savings and efficiencies to your business in five key areas:

  • Improved Fuel Economy

    The contribution of wheel flange lubrication could mean substantial fuel savings for the railroad.

  • Reduced Maintenance Costs

    Proper grease selection helps to reduce friction and wear, which can contribute to decreasing rail repairs.

  • Increased Equipment Life

    Extending the life and value of your equipment means your rail line can generate more revenue across it's lifetime.

  • Reduced Complexity

    We offer a complementary two-grease solution, wide transition windows and effective range.
