There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting 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 – Increases performance life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, lowers wear and rust, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The best oils and lubes with the best filtering systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most essential component of the whole machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash considering the reality that it could be decreased drastically (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the proper 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 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 along with a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most destructive 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 2 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 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 essential to secure 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea but a reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the merchant generally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this security? Since, we make our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Regretfully 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 makers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is important to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you avoid the down-time & costly impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required specs will result in optimal engine performance and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme 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 rust, especially 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microorganism development (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 blockages.
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 held in suspension within the fuel, performed 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 likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and accomplish better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise consists of detergent dispersant aspects to not only clean but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise provides the operator a chance 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 regular use.
Pristine fuel is vital for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very effective 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 main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and frequently eliminates costly secondary filter clog.
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 little particles.
Microlube has built a variety of quality filter-systems which are developed to get rid of fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of contaminants as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants 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 standard 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 vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
