There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the right oil for your equipment is to select the right oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the right 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, gear boxes, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and rust, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most important part of the entire machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be reduced considerably (most likely by 75%) by the setup 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 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 typical and most damaging problems 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 two major problems have become a thing of the past 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 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 necessary to protect complex 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.
Scary idea but a truth, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the merchant normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this defense? Since, we make 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 fail before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is crucial to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet needed requirements will result in optimal engine performance and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination normally 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 chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also 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 rust, particularly in heat areas 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 slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held 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. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and accomplish better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing 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 Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also provides 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 normal use.
Beautiful fuel is crucial for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron score. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and often removes pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing approval amongst 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 created 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, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material utilized for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the flow rate adjusted for the viscosity of the fluid to be filtered.
2. Select the micron score 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 standard 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 crucial to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
