There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most essential element of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the right oil viscosity. The directions for choosing 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 – Maximises efficiency life of older petrol and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The best oils and lubes with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most essential element of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be decreased drastically (probably by 75%) by the setup of the right cooling system products.
Fluid Masters continuous dedication is to offer the 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 customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most harmful problems 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 two major problems have ended up being a distant memory 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 vital 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening thought but a reality, and still they go unprotected as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer generally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this protection? Because, we make our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. 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 producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially essential. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional 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 essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you avoid the down-time & costly effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will result in optimal engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol 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 greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. 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 degradation and filter/injector blockages.
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, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, 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 problems and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur managed 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 likewise provides the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and for that reason “hedge” against rising fuel costs. For long storage of fuel, we recommend that the Gen XI product be used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for normal use.
Beautiful fuel is essential for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. That’s as near 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 very efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and frequently gets rid of costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a series 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 impurities as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings 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 pick 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 rating 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 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 essential to note that: Diesel and gas engines digest 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 impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
