About Shell Tellus Oils – The Next Generation
The next generation of Shell Tellus oils build on Shell’s worldwide experience in lubrication technology – why use an inferior hydraulic fluid that only performs its basic functions, when you can now use a fluid that offers superior protection for your machinery, and if properly maintained will remain in service for considerably longer than inferior quality products, even in heavy duty use. Tellus can even reduce the negative effects of contaminants when compared to competitor hydraulic oils.
Next generation Shell Tellus Oil incorporates a unique patented additive system designed to keep everything in healthy working order under even extreme conditions. Shell guarantees a globally consistent performance of Tellus next generation, offering you worldwide the highest quality standards.
By working closely with major equipment manufacturers, continually carrying out stringent testing and conducting ongoing research into hydraulic oils, we ensure that you benefit from the latest developments.

By using next generation Shell Tellus, you can keep your production processes going smoothly – and be confident that you won’t let your customers down. Next generation Shell Tellus exceeds the DIN standard to offer you unprecedented levels of performance:
- Extends your maintenance intervals by up to 100%
- Protects your equipment and production line
- Enables you to plan maintenance when it suits your schedule
- Prevents unexpected equipment failures
- Promotes smoother operation
- Reduction of oil waste through extended drain intervals
In addition, next generation Shell Tellus:
