This is where Fluid Masters have the products and services to assist you achieve this objective.
Fluid Masters have engaged global industrial chemists to develop their products. Through comprehensive laboratory screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after attaining exceptional outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the greatest performance that existing science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Increases performance life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, lowers wear and rust, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially formulated blend of penetrates, lubricants and sludge dispersants created for use in all gas and diesel engines, gear trains, transmission, final drive differentials.
In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the best filtering systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most important element of the whole machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash thinking about the truth that it could be minimized dramatically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper cooling system products.
Fluid Masters ongoing commitment is to offer the best cooling system products that can be produced. The products Fluid Masters market were established by the School of Chemical Engineering at the Western Australian Institute of Technology (Curtin University) in the early 1980’s by Dr Richie and his team established a protectorate as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most damaging issues facing the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Erosion” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 major issues have ended up being a distant memory for our customers with not one instance being recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it was in Henry Ford’s time, with really little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump from a Parramatta plumbing contractor.
In engines today it is vital to safeguard complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “electrolysis”, the disintegrating of alloy by electrical action of the engine, by a local Parramatta electrician. It is as though the engine is one huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the seller typically has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as needed by the maker. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is essential to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you prevent the down-time & costly results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed specs will lead to maximum engine performance and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and rust, specifically in high temperature locations of marine engines. Salt water can cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel degradation and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also consists of detergent dispersant elements to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also offers the operator a chance to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “hedge” against rising fuel costs. For long storage of fuel, we recommend that the Gen XI product be used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is vital for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and often gets rid of costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing approval among mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are created to get rid of fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on the flow rate adjusted for the viscosity of the fluid to be filtered.
2. Select the micron ranking of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic port, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to note that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
