What is Shell Tellus oil used for?

Mobile hydraulic fluid power transmission systems Shell Tellus S2 MX fluids can be used effectively in mobile hydraulic power applications such as excavators and cranes, except where significant ambient temperature variations are encountered.

Which grade of oil is used in hydraulic system?

Below mentioned viscosity is measured at 40 degree C….Everything you wanted to know about Hydraulic Oil.

32 Mostly used in the manufacture of Hydraulic oils.
100 Mostly used in the manufacture of Gear oils.

What is the most common hydraulic oil?

The most commonly used hydraulic fluids are mineral oil-based ISO 32 and ISO 46 fluids. The numbers in their names represent fluid viscosity in centistokes at 100 °F.

How many grades of hydraulic oil are there?

With hydraulics, there are three grades for considerations – the viscosity grade and the hydraulic oil type grade 32-46-68. These specifications are typically determined by the weight and viscosity of the oil.

What viscosity is Tellus 68?


Brand Tellus
Viscosity ISO 68
Viscosity Index 143
Kinematic Viscosity cSt 40°C 68

Is Shell Tellus synthetic?

Shell Tellus hydraulic fluids include extra-long-life synthetic technologies capable of up to four times standard life, through to reliable products for less-demanding applications.

What is the viscosity of hydraulic oil 68?

Hydraulic oil ISO 68
Mineral based hydraulic oil
Kinematic viscosity at 104°F (40°C) 68.0 cSt
Kinematic viscosity at 212°F (100°C) 10.2 cSt
Viscosity index 135

What’s the difference between hydraulic oil 46 and 68?

46 is medium and No. 68 is thicker. Generally speaking, if the temperature is low in winter, use #32 & #46 hydraulic oil with a lower viscosity, and use #68 hydraulic oil with a higher viscosity in summer.

Is ISO 68 mineral oil?

ISO Grade 68, Mineral oil. Designed to perform in the most demanding hydraulic systems and air compressors.
