Shell adds Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 to transmission fluids portfolio

Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 is a fuel-efficient and long-life transmission and gearbox oil approved to meet the requirement for Volvo transmission specification 97307 for use in Volvo I-Shift and Mack mDrive transmissions, the company said.

Shell Lubricants said its new Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 is a fuel-efficient and long-life transmission and gearbox oil approved to meet the requirement for Volvo transmission specification 97307 for use in Volvo I-Shift and Mack mDrive transmissions.

It is specifically formulated with synthetic base oils and additive technology for improved lubrication and lower operating temperatures over longer oil-drain intervals, according to the company, and can help protect against wear, pitting, bearing failure and corrosion for reduced maintenance and longer equipment life.

“In order to meet the needs of our Volvo and Mack fleet customers, Shell Lubricants will add Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 to our North American portfolio of low viscosity, full synthetic oils,” said Dan Arcy, OEM technical manager, Shell Lubricants. “Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 meets the extended service requirements for Volvo and Mack by offering excellent oil life, allowing drain intervals up to 250,000 miles.”

According to the maker, Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 has exceptional resistance to physical and chemical breakdown, as well as long-life additives that enable the oil to keep gears protected and maintain performance over extended oil-drain intervals.

The product carries component and vehicle manufacturer approvals for MAN 341 Type E4 and Volvo 97307and also may be used where API GL-4, MT-1, SAE 75W-80 lubricant is required.

Shell said its Spirax range of heavy-duty automatic transmission fluids offer optimum value through wear protection, long oil life and efficiency. Shell Spirax S6 GXME 75W-80 is available via Shell Lubricants distributors in 5 gal. containers.
