There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to select the right oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants 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 important element of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of money considering the truth that it could be reduced drastically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the best cooling system products that can be produced. The products FluidMasters 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 as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most devastating issues facing 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 changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to safeguard complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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.
Frightening thought but a truth, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer usually has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this protection? Because, we make our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. Unfortunately though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split 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 important to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to assist you prevent the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed requirements will result in optimal engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive 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 therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect 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 lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, especially in heat areas 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 retards fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel destruction 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, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise includes detergent dispersant aspects to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of 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 Medical facilities with distillate 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 extended periods and therefore “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 essential for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron score. That’s as near to 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 exceptionally efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification 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 small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are developed 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 impurities as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used for these bags and is available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities 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 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 standard 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 essential to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more efficiently operating 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.
