There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The directions for choosing 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 – Increases performance life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. NOTE: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubes with the best purification systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most crucial part of the entire machine. It is a reality 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 annually is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the truth that it could be decreased significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct 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 along with 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 devastating problems challenging 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 problems have become 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 necessary to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “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.
Frightening idea but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the recommendations 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 retailer usually has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this security? Because, we produce our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. Unfortunately though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked 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 ideal coolant is crucial to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to help you avoid the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy needed specifications will result in optimal engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced 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 significantly affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger 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 deterioration, specifically in high temperature locations of marine engines. Salt water can trigger 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 retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel destruction and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise includes cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur managed 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 likewise gives 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is important for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near 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 exceptionally efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification 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 variety of quality filter-systems which are designed to eliminate fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants 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 model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic port, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
