Fluid Masters have engaged international commercial chemists to establish their products. Through comprehensive laboratory testing they have created 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 attaining impressive results the company broadened its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and technology enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest performance that current science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most important element of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The instructions 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 – Increases performance life of older petrol and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially created blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants created for use in all gas 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 Lubes.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most important component of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. 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 thinking about the reality that it could be reduced significantly (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate cooling system products.
Fluid Masters ongoing commitment is to offer the absolute best cooling system products that can be produced. The products Fluid Masters market were developed 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 developed 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 typical and most harmful issues 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 issues have ended up being 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 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 vital to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “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.
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 inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer generally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this security? 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 fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is vital to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides 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 extract fuels that meet needed specs will lead to optimal engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater can cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microorganism development (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 obstructions.
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, finished 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 thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also offers 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 normal use.
Pristine fuel is important for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron score. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are exceptionally efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of economical, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly removes expensive secondary filter blockage.
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 small particles.
Microlube has developed a variety of quality filter-systems which are created to get rid of fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of impurities as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on the circulation 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 particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to note that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
