In manufacturing, the impact of lubrication on maintenance costs is critical. There are two ways in which you can lower your total cost of ownership: ensuring that you use the most appropriate lubricant for each type of equipment; and understanding and implementing effective lubricant management.

With productivity paramount, customers are seeking to increase output capacity by minimising unplanned equipment shutdowns and extending maintenance cycles. Machinery is required to work under higher temperatures, greater power density and higher operating pressures. Shell’s experts work to meet the demands of changing machinery, ensuring that the right lubricants and lubrication practices are in place to reduce the total cost of machinery ownership for customers.
