There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to select the right oil viscosity. The directions for choosing the right 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 fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, last drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money considering the fact that it could be lowered significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation 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 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 along with 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 devastating 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 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 necessary to safeguard complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “electrolysis”, the breaking down 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 unprotected 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 merchant normally 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? Since, we make our products to perform as required by the producer. 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 running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is essential 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 services and products to help you prevent the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet required specifications will lead to maximum engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, specifically in heat locations of marine engines. Seawater 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 speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
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, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended 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 gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “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 typical 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 near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and frequently gets rid of pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration 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 small particles.
Microlube has constructed a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to eliminate fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate 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 available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on 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, choose 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 note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
