Shell Gadus high performance greases now available for the Lube-Shuttle® screw cartridge system.

The future of clean and efficient greasing

Greasing equipment with standard grease guns can be a dirty and time-consuming task. As a result, it can be seen as an unwelcome job and sometimes gets skipped.

At Shell we’ve now introduced a better alternative available for efficiently greasing equipment: the Lube-Shuttle® Screw Cartridge System.

Lube-Shuttle® takes the hassle out of greasing, it is quick, easy and clean.

Loading the Lube-Shuttle® grease gun with the grease cartridge can be done in three simple steps:

  1. Screw cap off
  2. Push grease slightly over the neck of the tube
  3. Screw the cartridge into the gun

System benefits include?

  • No tear-off caps or tools required to open and close after use – reducing waste and minimising risk of potential contamination;
  • Sealed cartridge with a plunger, operated by vacuum, eliminates the need for the heavy spring and plunger found on a standard grease gun;
  • Stable 1-inch screw head – tearing off the screw head less likely versus other screw cartridge systems;
  • The grade used in the grease gun is visible, the fill status can easily be checked;
  • Lube-Shuttle® cartridges are recyclable. They are made of low-impurity plastic with little residue is left in the cartridge once emptied, product recycling and protection of the environment are optimized;
  • Even flow of grease, even if fluidity is low;
  • The design of the plunger minimizes leaking and enables almost total consumption of the grease inside the cartridge helping to save time, money and resources.
