There are four areas to be looked after and handled. 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 crucial aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The instructions for picking 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 efficiency life of older fuel and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very 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 car is without a doubt the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a reality 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 each year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the truth that it could be lowered dramatically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
Fluid Masters continuous 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 as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical 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 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 very 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 complex 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary thought but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the suggestions 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 typically has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this protection? Since, we make our products to perform as needed by the maker. Sadly though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right 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 offers cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you prevent the down-time & expensive impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed requirements will result in optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger 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 deterioration, particularly in high temperature 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe development (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 obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the unique 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 exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and accomplish better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise provides the operator a chance 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is imperative 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 circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are developed to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the circulation 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, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific 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 absorb 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 effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
