Fluid Masters’ machinery fluid management can offer equipment owners the reliability, improved performance and lower running costs that they need to operate their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus gaining the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where Fluid Masters have the product or services to help you attain this objective.
Fluid Masters have engaged global industrial chemists to establish their products. Through substantial laboratory testing they have created 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 achieving outstanding results the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest performance that present science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important element of using the best oil for your machinery is to select the right oil viscosity. The directions for picking 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 – Maximises performance life of older petrol and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. NOTE: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially created blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants developed for use in all petrol 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 Lubes.
The best oils and lubes with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible protection 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 fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be decreased significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
Fluid Masters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most destructive 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 two major problems have become a thing of the past 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 extremely 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 important to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected 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 retailer usually has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this defense? Since, we produce our products to perform as needed by the producer. Unfortunately though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is vital to effective 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 product or services to help you prevent the down-time & costly results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet needed requirements will result in maximum engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, especially in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater can trigger 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 slows down fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the special 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 atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely 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 Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also provides 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Beautiful fuel is imperative for the wellness of your machinery. 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 typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and regularly eliminates costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has constructed a range of quality filter-systems which are developed 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 small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material utilized for these bags and is readily 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 rating 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, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is imperative to keep in mind 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 effectively running engine, leading to less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
