Are there automotive lubricants that could replace or be the equivelant of the following industrial fluids? 1. Shell Tellus oil 10 2. Shell Omala oil 150 3. Shell Macoma 72 (SAE90) 4. Shell grease S. 3655 (semi-liquid gear grease) or BP Energrease HT 0 I am working on a West Germany made(Krones) bottle labeler used in the labeling of beer bottles after they are filled. Most of the resivoirs are empty or nearly empty, and we are bottling tomorrow. I am hoping to use anything close for now, and will change to the specified fluid later. I will need to purchase at an auto parts store as the oil distributors are now closed till monday. Any help would be appreciated. And if you are in the San Diego area, there might be beer in it for you.

For the Tellus 10 I am wondering if I could use power steering fluid, but the PS fluid says petroleum oil and the tellus is mineral--are they different? Omala 150 I have no clue. Macoma 72, I am thinking any 90w gear oil?

I am sure, but it also lists Esso Nuto H 10, Fina Hydran 10, and Mobil DTE21 as also acceptable. The power steering fluid is a little thicker at 5.2 cSt at 100C and 31.8 cSt at 40C

It runs through a pump and sprays on gears and bearings that rotate the bottles, then drains back to the reservoir. The manual states to drain off water daily, so apparently it doesn't mix with water.

I take it back, The 10 weight is for the auto oiler in the air system. Air tool oil?
Go for it.

The ATF was a little heavy according to specs. Here is what I will use until I can get the specified stuff: 1. For the Tellus 10---air tool oil 2. For the Omalla 150---Amsoil Manual trans and transaxle gear lube (I have it and don't need it) 3. For the Macoma 72---Coastal 80-90 gear oil. 4. I'll wait till I get the right stuff (this item is less urgent) All the above will be changed out as I find and get the correct stuff. I will also use Amsoil multipurpose spray grease and Amsoil 5th wheel and open gear compound on various other neglected areas. Thanks for all the help everyone...cheers.
