In tests, Shell Tellus EE helped companies reduce the energy consumption of their hydraulic machinery by an average of 8% while also protecting equipment protection and extending oil maintenance intervals.

Shell Tellus EE is the company’s first synthetic hydraulic fluid that has been specifically designed to help improve the energy efficiency of the machinery in which it is used. The fluid contains a patented additive technology.

"Shell Tellus EE exceeds the maximum test duration of 10,000 hours in the industry TOST[1] test used to assess the oil life of hydraulic fluids, as well as demonstrates wear levels in hydraulic pump tests way below the levels often set by industry standards or certain OEM limits,” said Dennis Woodley, Shell Hydraulics Product Application Specialist.
