XCMG has partnered with Shell to launch XCMG tailored lubricants

Viva Energy lubricants sales and marketing manager Renee Reilly adds: “Since the establishment of XCMG Excavator Division in 1999, Shell has been co-operating with XCMG in the field of lubrication.

“In recent years, with the accelerated pace of XCMG’s equipment business, Shell and XCMG have strengthened their partnership, jointly launching lubricants tailored for XCMG to bring the best out of XCMG equipment.”

Viva Energy technical specialist Silvana Farrugia says: “Lubricant is an indispensable part of the operation of construction machinery. The XCMG tailored lubricants developed by Shell will bring even better protection to XCMG’s equipment with world-class product standards and quality assurance.”

Lubricants are used to reduce friction, wear and corrosion, and can also remove dirt and deposits inside the machinery, providing protection for industrial equipment and improving its operating efficiency and life.

“Contaminated fluids are known to cause up to 75 per cent of repair costs and equipment downtime, including 65–75 per cent of bearing failures*,” Farrugia adds.

“Routine fluid analysis combined with high-quality lubricants developed with Shell Lubricant technology can better protect construction machinery, resulting in less downtime.”

Shell has five R&D centres around the world and more than 300 scientists and engineers engaged in the research and development of lubricants and greases. With the industry’s leading technologies, Shell continuously invests in R&D and makes breakthroughs in innovation, always putting customers at the centre of its efforts to provide high-quality products, which have won the praise and trust of its customers around the world, it states.

“Indeed, Shell Lubricants has been named the world’s leading supplier of finished lubricants for the 17th consecutive year by Kline & Company,” Reilly says.

Koglin encourages workshop and equipment owners to get in touch with XCMG Australia.

“By stocking genuine XCMG lubricants, users can be sure that they will have the right oil for their equipment,” he says.

“Come and visit us at Diesel Dirt and Turf, April 12–14, Sydney Dragway, Eastern Creek.”
