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 best viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the best oil for your equipment is to choose the appropriate oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubes 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 by far the most important part of the whole machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the fact that it could be reduced dramatically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication 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 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 confronting 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 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 very little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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.
Frightening idea but a reality, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice 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 merchant normally has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this protection? Because, we produce our products to perform as required 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 manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is particularly important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is crucial to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important 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 & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill required specs will result in optimum engine performance and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly 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 lube the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, particularly in high temperature 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the destruction 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 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 small microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept 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 avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean 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 Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise offers the operator a chance 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Beautiful fuel is crucial for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. 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 incredibly efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of economical, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often gets rid of expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious 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 small particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are designed to get rid of fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of impurities as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to choose 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 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 crucial to keep in mind 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 effectively operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
