Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance lowers repair costs plus saves on the downtime involved. Fluid Masters’ focus is to provide quality product or services for your equipment that will decrease your ongoing running and maintenance costs, increase efficiency and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
Fluid Masters’ machinery fluid management can provide equipment owners the reliability, improved efficiency and lower running costs that they need to run their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every equipment owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus acquiring the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where Fluid Masters have the product or services to help you achieve this goal.
Fluid Masters have engaged international industrial chemists to develop their products. Through substantial laboratory screening they have developed 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 accomplishing exceptional outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups which include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest efficiency that current science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the right oil for your equipment is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the right 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 fuel 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 periods. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specifically developed mix of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants created for use in all gas and diesel engines, gear trains, transmission, final drive differentials.
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 filtering systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most crucial part of the whole machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the fact that it could be decreased significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
Fluid Masters ongoing dedication 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 along with a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most damaging issues 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 two major issues 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 very 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 necessary 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 idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer generally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this defense? Since, we make 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 stop working before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, 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 right coolant is vital to effective engine life span. 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 & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet needed specifications will lead to maximum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide optimal efficiency.
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 last storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the efficiency 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 lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and rust, particularly in heat 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microbe growth (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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the special 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 also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and achieve much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product also includes detergent dispersant elements to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also gives 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is important for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron score. 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 effective 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 used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and frequently removes pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering 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 created 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 impurities as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is offered 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 upon 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, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
