As time has passed and innovation enhanced, continuous research has seen these products fine-tuned and enhanced to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest performance that current science has the ability to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important element of using the best oil for your machinery is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubricants with the best purification systems means the best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most important element 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 massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the reality that it could be minimized considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the 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 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 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 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 protect complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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.
Scary 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 incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer generally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the appropriate products for this security? Because, we produce 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 fail before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is important to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you prevent the down-time & expensive impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will result in optimal engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced 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 significantly impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, especially in high temperature 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 development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microbe development (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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small 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 exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled 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 also 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your machinery. 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 flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and frequently gets rid of 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 little particles.
Microlube has built a variety 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 pollutants as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance 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 upon 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 design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic 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 imperative to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
