Shell ushers in a new age of fluid reliability and digital solutions at EXCON 2022
Chennai, 20 May 2022: Shell, the world leader in finished lubricants, recently showcased its complete range of digital and fluid reliability solutions at EXCON 2022. Shell was present across two stalls at the event, featuring its full range of construction and mining products, services, and digital solutions.
The highlight of the event was an exclusive launch of Shell LubeOptimiser by Jaideep Shekhar, MD, Asia & EMEAR, Terex Materials Processing, and live dashboards of revolutionary telematics solutions Machine Max and Shell Remote Sense.
Commenting on Shell’s range of products and services at EXCON, Debanjali Sengupta, Country Head, Shell Lubricants India, said, “Unlocking value for our partners, OEMs, and end consumers is at the heart of our business, and we are proud to be consistently setting benchmarks for quality and performance. While we continue to offer best-in-class lubricants, our solutions are designed to help customers in running trouble-free operations and reducing the total cost of ownership both on-site and off-site. We have expanded our portfolio for construction and mining sectors and are looking to grow our fluid reliability and digital solutions multifold in 2022”.
Shell’s fluid reliability solutions help customers address their lubrication-related challenges such as removal of contamination, water, varnish, etc. The absence of proper treatment of lubricants can significantly impact the cost of operation and maintenance and increase downtime due to unwanted failures. Shell LubeOptimiser is Shell’s latest fluid reliability solution designed to simplify operations, reduce downtime, and protect equipment.
Shell also showcased a live dashboard of cutting-edge sensor-based digital solutions, MachineMax and Remote Sense. While MachineMax helps companies to maximize the profitability and efficiency of their off-highway fleets using intelligent sensors and next-generation analytics; Shell Remote Sense is an elite remote condition monitoring service which uses oil sensors, data science and analytics to deliver actionable insights to customers on the condition of lubricants and equipment on a real-time basis. Shell Remote Sense’s predictive capabilities can help customers avoid unplanned stoppages or breakdowns.
Through its range of solutions and robust portfolio, Shell demonstrated how customers can tap into the hidden potential in operations to reduce the total cost of ownership and unlock substantial savings in both construction and mining sectors.
