There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the best oil for your equipment is to pick the right oil viscosity. The instructions for choosing the best 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 efficiency life of older gas and diesel motor (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 periods. NOTE: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is without a doubt the most crucial component 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 a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash considering the reality that it could be decreased considerably (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the right cooling system products.
Fluid Masters continuous commitment 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 in addition to 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 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 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 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 essential to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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 insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the seller typically has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this protection? Due to the fact that, 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 stop working before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is crucial to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you avoid the down-time & costly impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet required specs will result in optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination typically 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 possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, especially in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater 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 presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water allows microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held 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. As well, 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 issues and attain much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise includes detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, right viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise offers 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is essential for the well-being of your equipment. 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 regular with flow 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 series of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly eliminates costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has developed a series of quality filter-systems which are developed to eliminate fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is available 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 pick 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 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 essential to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, resulting in 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.
