Fluid Masters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the dependability, enhanced performance and lower running costs that they need to run their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are skyrocketing skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to increase the financial investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus gaining the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where Fluid Masters have the product or services to help you attain this goal.
Fluid Masters have engaged international industrial chemists to develop their products. Through substantial lab screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after accomplishing impressive outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology enhanced, continuous research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest performance that present science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to choose the right oil viscosity. The instructions for picking the ideal 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 – Increases performance life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, decreases 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.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most crucial element 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 an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be minimized considerably (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
Fluid Masters continuous dedication is to offer the absolute 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 customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most damaging 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 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 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 vital to protect complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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.
Frightening thought 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 seller generally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this defense? Because, 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 temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection 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 offers cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you prevent the down-time & costly impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specs will lead to maximum engine performance and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, particularly in high temperature areas of marine engines. Salt water can cause 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 retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. 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 deterioration and filter/injector clogs.
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, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore 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 higher performance.
The product also includes detergent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also provides the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long 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.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron rating. That’s as close 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 extremely efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and often gets rid of costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing approval 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 developed a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to remove fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove pollutants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to choose 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 vital to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
