Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance decreases repair work costs plus saves on the downtime involved. Fluid Masters’ focus is to supply quality product or services for your equipment that will reduce your continuous running and maintenance costs, boost performance and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
Fluid Masters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the reliability, improved performance and lower running costs that they need to run their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are skyrocketing skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every equipment owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus getting the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where Fluid Masters have the product or services to help you achieve this objective.
Fluid Masters have engaged international commercial chemists to establish their products. Through comprehensive laboratory screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after accomplishing outstanding results the company expanded its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest performance that present science has the ability to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to pick the right oil viscosity. The directions for picking the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Maximises performance life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and corrosion, 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 mix of penetrates, lubricants and sludge dispersants designed for use in all petrol and diesel engines, gear trains, gear boxes, final drive differentials.
In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubricants with the best filtering systems means the best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be decreased significantly (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
Fluid Masters continuous 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 in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most harmful issues confronting 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 clients 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 changes. 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 essential to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the breaking down of alloy by electrical action of the engine, by a local Parramatta electrician. It is as though the engine is one big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go vulnerable 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. Keep in mind, the merchant usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this protection? Because, we produce our products to perform as needed by the producer. Sadly though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is essential to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you prevent the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy needed specifications will result in optimum engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, especially in heat 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel degradation and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and achieve much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also includes detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended periods and therefore “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.
Beautiful fuel is essential for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to 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 range of economical, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and frequently eliminates pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to remove fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove impurities as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities 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 rating of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic port, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is essential to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
