Shell Tellus S2 V


Shell Tellus S2 V uses a unique additive technology to deliver an oil life over twice the industry standards, excellent pump protection and high efficiency levels. It is a fluid that you can rely on in outdoor or cold environments, as it has been designed to have a wide operating temperature range. Engineered to maintain its viscosity and performance over the oil-drain interval under severe mechanical stress and under hot and humid conditions, it is the most popular multigrade hydraulic oil in the Shell Tellus range. It is widely recognised and approved by leading equipment manufacturers.


All Shell Tellus products now meet the demanding cleanliness requirements of the DIN industry standard to help provide extra protection, improved filter performance and less maintenance.

Designed to protect

Protecting components from damage can help to increase service life and maximise your return on investment. Shell Tellus S2 V can help to achieve this by providing

  • up to 85% less wear than the maximum allowed in the industry-standard hydraulic pump tests
  • up to 68% better protection against viscosity loss for continuing protection and performance throughout the oil’s life.

Designed for long oil life

Limiting fluid degradation can help to prolong oil life. Shell Tellus S2 V is designed to help you operate for longer without interruption – for reduced maintenance requirements and enhanced productivity. In the industry-standard oil life test, Shell Tellus S2 V achieved

  • two and a half times longer oil life than the industry minimum.

Designed for high efficiency

A hydraulic fluid needs to protect, lubricate and transmit power efficiently. Shell Tellus S2 V is designed to help maximise productivity by helping equipment to meet or exceed its design capabilities. Compared with the industry minimum requirements, it offers

  • up to 62% faster air release for efficient and precise hydraulic power transmission
  • up to 32% better filterability in the demanding industry-standard wet test procedure to help reduce pressure loss for more efficient operation.


Shell Tellus S2 V meets the requirements of a wide range of industry bodies and equipment manufacturers. ISO viscosity grades available: 15, 22, 32, 46, 68, 100.

Real-world value delivery

Shell Tellus S2 V has documented value delivery in both stationary and mobile hydraulic applications across a wide range of industries. For instance:

  • operators of mobile and exposed plant have increased operational efficiency
  • open-cast mining and cement plants have reduced maintenance requirements and sludge-formationrelated stoppages by switching from competitor oils
  • stationary equipment such as presses have benefited from the fluid’s greater temperature-related viscosity stability: one customer has reportedly unlocked maintenance cost savings of over $20,000 a year.


Whatever your needs or application, Shell can provide a full range of oils and greases, including synthetic, high-performance products and additional services.
