There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations 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 essential element of using the best oil for your equipment is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting 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 performance life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, final drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes 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.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the very best filtering 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 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 every year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the fact that it could be minimized considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper cooling system products.
Fluid Masters ongoing 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 customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most harmful 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 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 important to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “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.
Scary thought but a reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the merchant typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this protection? Because, we produce our products to perform as needed 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 producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is important to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you prevent the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet needed specifications will result in optimum engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the performance 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.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and rust, specifically in heat locations 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector clogs.
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 held in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise includes cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled 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 twenty 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Beautiful fuel is important for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often gets rid of pricey secondary filter clog.
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 little particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is offered in micron rankings 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 choose 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 ranking 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 important to keep in mind 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 efficiently running engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
