Customer Success Stories


Construction company saves $NZD440k by switching to Shell Omala S4 WE

During maintenance, it was noticed that the main gearboxes on boom cranes were suffering from excessive wear. The challenge was to find a product that would lubricate gearboxes with complex metallurgies and offer extended drain periods compared with the existing products.

They replaced the existing lubricant with Shell Omala S4 WE. Shell Omala S4 WE is an advanced, synthetic, heavy-duty industrial-gear lubricant formulated using specially selected polyalkylene-glycol-based fluids and additives. It offers outstanding lubrication performance under severe operating conditions.

The results show the oil has reduced gear wear and extended the oil-drain interval, thereby reducing costs for parts and labour, and crane downtime. Savings associated with using Shell Omala S4 WE oil of NZD$570,000 were reported.


Construction company extends oil-drain interval by 50% with Shell Rimula

A road construction company wanted to determine the best lubricants for equipment it would use on a new large-scale roading project. Subsequently, owing to an increase in the workload, the customer wanted to extend the oil-drain interval, so Shell Rimula R4 X 15W-40 was proposed for this.

By switching to Shell Rimula R4 X 15W-40, the company was able to extend its oil-drain interval by 50% from 300 to 450 hours.

The company reduced its lubricant consumption and extended its maintenance intervals because fewer oil changes were required, which resulted in lower maintenance costs- with a reported annual saving of $NZD80000.
