Shell's Hydraulic Lubricant Persists Throughout Arctic Conditions02 May 2012
One of the most unusual challenges Shell Lubricants has been set was to develop a hydraulic fluid that would enable the world's largest mining excavators to start at temperatures as low as -50°C. Not only that, the excavators needed to operate reliably around the clock through the full range of Arctic Circle conditions, which can see summer machine operating temperatures soar to 75°C.
To keep a key customer's excavators operating 24h a day, year round in the Arctic Circle, Shell combined physics, chemistry and mechanical engineering to find a solution.
