Shell Turbo Oils T have long been regarded as the industry standard turbine oil. Building on this reputation, Shell
Turbo Oils T have been developed to offer improved performance capable of meeting the demands of the most modern
steam turbine systems and light duty gas turbines, which require no enhanced anti-wear performance for the gearbox.
Shell Turbo Oils T are formulated from high quality hydrotreated base oils and a combination of zinc-free additives
that provide excellent oxidative stability, protection against rust & corrosion, low foaming and excellent demulsibility.


Turbine Oil

Strong Control of Oxidation
The use of inherently oxidatively stable base oils together with an effective inhibitor package provides high resistance to oxidative degradation. The result is extended oil life, minimising the formation of aggressive corrosive acids, deposits and sludge, reducing your operating costs.

High Resistance to Foaming and Rapid Air Release
The oils are formulated with a non-silicone anti-foam additive, which generally controls foam formation. This feature coupled with fast air-release from the lubricant reduces the possibility of problems such as pump cavitation, excessive wear and premature oil oxidation, giving you increased system reliability.

Positive Water-shedding properties
Robust demulsibility control such that excess water, common-place in steam turbines, can be drained easily from the lubrication system, minimising corrosion and premature wear. Lowering the risk of unplanned maintenance.

Excellent Rust & Corrosion Protection
Prevents the formation of rust and guards against onset of corrosion ensuring protection for equipment following exposure to humidity or water during operation and during shut-downs, minimising maintenance.

Resistant to reaction with ammonia
The use of highly refined base oils and specific additives, resistant to attack by ammonia, minimises the possibility of damaging oil soluble/insoluble ammonia compounds being formed in the lubricant. Shell Turbo Oils T mitigates the formation of these deposits, which could impair the reliable operation of bearings and seal oil systems.
