We harness Shell gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology to create high-purity process oils that open exciting opportunities for your products and operations.
Conventional process oils are derived from crude oil, whereas Shell Risella X and Shell Ondina X are made from pure synthesis gas. That frees them from the impurities and large molecular variations found in mineral oils. Using GTL process oils could enhance your processes and final products to give you a competitive advantage.
Have you ever experienced product quality issues caused by variations in process oil batches? Do you need a low-viscosity process oil, but have concerns about the effect of volatiles on working conditions? Could you offer enhanced products if you had process oils with distinct characteristics, for example, an extremely narrow hydrocarbon distribution range?
Our GTL process oils contain a high proportion of paraffinic hydrocarbons and are very pure, which provides key qualities for many applications. For instance, would your processes or products benefit from oils that
- are colourless
- are almost odourless
- contain virtually no sulphur, nitrogen or aromatics
- have an extremely narrow hydrocarbon distribution range?
GTL process oils can enhance performance in many applications through their outstanding characteristics, including
- low volatility (low PAH and VOC content)
- low pour point
- high flash point
- high viscosity index
- exceptional UV and thermal colour stability.
