High Quality Industrial Steam & Gas Turbine Oils

Shell Turbo Oils T have long been regarded as the industry standard for turbine oil. Building on this reputation, Shell Turbo Oils T have been developed to offer improved performance capable of meeting the demands of the most modern steam turbine systems and light duty gas turbines, which require no enhanced anti-wear performance for the gearbox. Shell Turbo Oils T are formulated from high quality hydrotreated base oils and a combination of zinc-free additives that provide excellent oxidative stability protection against rust and corrosion, low foaming and excellent demulsibility. 

Shell Turbo Oils T is suitable for numerous applications where strong control over rust and oxidation is required.

  • Strong Control of Oxidation: The use of inherently oxidatively stable base oils together with an effective inhibitor package provides high resistance to oxidative degradation. The result is extended oil life, minimising the formation of aggressive corrosive acids, deposits and sludge, reducing your operating costs.
  • High Resistance to Foaming and Rapid Air Release: The oils are formulated with an anti-foam additive, which generally controls foam formation. This feature coupled with fast air-release from the lubricant reduces the possibility of problems such as pump cavitation, excessive wear and premature oil oxidation, giving you increased system reliability.
  • Positive Water-Shedding Properties: Robust demulsibility control such that excess water, common-place in steam turbines, can be drained easily from the lubrication system, minimising corrosion and premature wear, lowering the risk of unplanned maintenance.
  • Excellent Rust & Corrosion Protection: Prevents the formation of rust and guards against onset of corrosion ensuring protection for equipment following exposure to humidity or water during operation and during shut-downs, minimising maintenance.

Protect the Environment
Take used oil to an authorised collection point. Do not discharge into drains, soil or water. 

Guidance on health and safety can be found on the safety data sheet

Fitment / Compatibility:

  • Industrial steam turbines & light duty gas turbines which require no enhance anti-wear performance for the gearbox.
  • Hydroelectric turbine lubrication
  • Numerous applications where strong control over ruse and oxidation is required
  • Centrifugal and axial, dynamic turbo-compressors and pumps where an R&O type or turbine oil is recommended 


SHIPPING IS FREE* for orders of £75 and over , regardless of the weight of your order.
We've tried to keep all other shipping costs as low as we can.

Carriage starts at just £0.95 (inc VAT) for small items, with our most common courier rate set at £5.99 for orders of 5kg (enough for 5 litres of oil).

  • *Free shipping is available for UK Royal Mail, UPS Access Point™ (click & collect) and standard UK courier services (not express / priority / islands).
