 Point First Nation, Canada, replaced the standard mineral oil-based hydraulic fluid hydraulic fluid

 in a Husky H160 press with a new synthetic fluid. After two weeks testing with a power meter attached to the machine, Niigon found it had saved an average of 13.6% in energy consumption with the new oil.

Niigon was trying out Shell Tellus EE, a new hydraulic oil from Shell Lubricants, Houston. In designing this fluid, Shell examined where the energy losses occur in hydraulic systems. Researchers found that the pump itself accounts for only 6% of the energy losses, while 77% occurs through frictional drag in Verb 1. drag in - force into some kind of situation, condition, or course of action; "They were swept up by the events"; "don't drag me into this business"

 filters and piping. Shell then engineered this fluid to reduce energy losses throughout the system. (Note: Removing filters to save energy is not recommended!)

Previously sold in Japan and Europe, Tellus EE is now available globally and reportedly meets the requirements of Arburg, Engel, Husky, and Krauss Maffei, among others. It is also approved by leading hydraulic pump makers such as EatonVickers, Bosch Rexroth, and Parker Hannifin Parker Hannifin Corporation (originally Parker Appliance Company) NYSE: PH, of Cleveland, Ohio, is a manufacturer of motion and control technologies. Founded in 1924, the company has been publicly traded on the NYSE since December 9, 1964. . Energy savings in hydraulic machinery with Tellus EE are said to average 8%. Shell also says the new synthetic oil provides greater service life than mineral-base oils, as it lasts up to six times longer than equipment suppliers' recommendations for hydraulic oil in standard tests. These factors help make up for the higher price of the new oil
