Performance, Features & Benefits

  • Long fluid life – maintenance saving
    Shell Tellus S2 VX fluids help extend equipment maintenance intervals by resisting thermal and chemical breakdown. This minimizes any harmful sludge formation and provides better reliability and system cleanliness.

    Shell Tellus S2 VX fluids also have good stability in the presence of moisture, which ensures long fluid life and reduces the risk of corrosion and rusting, particularly in moist or humid environments.

    Highly shear stable viscosity modifiers help minimize variations in the fluid properties throughout the service life of the fluid
  • Outstanding wear protection
    Tellus S2 VX is designed to meet the demands of hydraulic systems well in to the future, including enhanced extreme pressure performance in the FZG test (FLS 11 at ISO VG 32). It also demonstrates excellent performance in the tough Denison T6H20C (dry and wet versions) and the demanding Eaton Vickers 35VQ25. Shell Tellus S2 VX fluids can help system components last longer.
  • Maintaining system efficiency
    Excellent filterability and high performance water separation, air release and antifoam characteristics all help contribute to maintaining or enhancing the efficiency of hydraulic systems. Optimization of friction characteristics also helps reduce harmful stick-slip effects.

    An oil cleanliness particle count of ISO 4406 20/18/15 or better (measured at the point of filling) helps reduce the impact of contaminants on filter blocking, allowing both extended filter life and enhancing equipment protection.

    Shell Tellus S2 VX fluids are formulated for exceptional foam control and excellent air release to facilitate efficient hydraulic power transfer and minimise fluid and equipment impacts of cavitation induced oxidation that can shorten fluid life.


Main Applications

  • Mobile/exterior hydraulic systems
    Hydraulic and fluid power transmission systems in exposed environments can be subject to wide variations in temperature. The high viscosity index of Shell Tellus S2 VX helps deliver responsive performance from cold start conditions to full load, severe duty operation.
  • Precision hydraulic systems
    Precision hydraulic systems require excellent control of fluid viscosity over the operating cycle. Shell Tellus S2 VX provides greater temperature-viscosity stability compared to ISO HM fluids that can help improve the performance of such systems.
  • Marine hydraulic systems
    Suitable for marine applications where ISO HV category hydraulic fluids are recommended.

Health, Safety & Environment

  • Health and Safety
    Shell Tellus S2 VX hydraulic fluid is unlikely to present any significant health or safety hazard when properly used in the recommended application and good standards of personal hygiene are maintained.

    Avoid contact with skin. Use impervious gloves with used oil. After skin contact, wash immediately with soap and water.

    Guidance on Health and Safety is available on the appropriate Material Safety Data Sheet.
  • Protect the Environment
    Take used oil to an authorised collection point. Do not discharge into drains, soil or water.
