In the waste management and recycling sectors, conveyors play a crucial role in the sorting and recycling of household and commercial waste. These machines need to be carefully maintained to ensure each piece of equipment works efficiently and safely. 

Conveyors are used in recycling operations to move materials like plastic, paper, and metal. They are typically designed to handle a variety of materials and are specifically designed to increase efficiency, reduce manual labour, and improve safety by reducing the need for workers to move materials. Without proper lubrication of mechanical features, these machines are subject to system failures and total breakdowns. 

Shell have been providing high-quality fuels and lubricants to the transport, mining, aviation, marine, manufacturing, defence, and construction sectors in Australia for over 100 years. Shell provides several hydraulic fluid solutions that can meet a variety of mechanical needs for use in conveyor and sorting systems.  


Shell Tellus 

The Shell Tellus range has been developed to allow equipment operators to select the right oil to ensure delivery of optimum value to their operations. Machines are precisely engineered, which is why it is important to choose a lubricant that is designed to protect and ensure each compartment works efficiently.
