There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be attended to 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 machinery is to select the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for choosing the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very 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 automobile is by far the most crucial component of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the reality that it could be lowered drastically (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment is to offer the absolute best cooling system products that can be produced. The products FluidMasters 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 client base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most harmful problems 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 problems have become a distant memory 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 extremely little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “electrolysis”, the breaking down of alloy by electrical action of the engine. It is as though the engine is one huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening thought but a reality, and still they go unguarded 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 retailer usually has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this protection? Because, we produce 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 makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split 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 important 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 assist you avoid the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet required requirements will lead to optimum engine efficiency and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities 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 lube the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in heat locations of marine engines. Seawater 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 presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector blockages.
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 kept in suspension within the fuel, performed 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 hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled 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 gives 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 necessary for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near to 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 commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and regularly removes pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing acceptance 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 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 pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized 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 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 ranking 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, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is necessary to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more efficiently 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.
