Every equipment owner needs a program to maximise the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus gaining the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the services and products to assist you accomplish this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged global commercial chemists to develop their products. Through substantial laboratory testing they have created fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after attaining outstanding outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups which include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest efficiency that existing science has the ability to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’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 pick the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking 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 gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. NOTE: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specifically created mix of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants created for use in all petrol 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 very best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is without a doubt the most crucial part of the whole machine. It is a fact 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 yearly is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be lowered drastically (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 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 two major issues have become 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 really little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is essential 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. It is as though the engine is one big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a truth, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the guidance 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 knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this protection? Since, we make our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Sadly though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you avoid the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required specifications will result in maximum engine efficiency and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum efficiency.
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 destination could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause 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 corrosion, particularly 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 development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water allows microbe development (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 obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and accomplish better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as close to 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 exceptionally efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and frequently eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification 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 constructed a series 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 small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material used for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on 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 basic port, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, leading to less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
