This is where FluidMasters have the services and products to assist you accomplish this objective.
FluidMasters have engaged international industrial chemists to develop their products. Through comprehensive lab screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after attaining outstanding results the company expanded its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and technology improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest performance that current science has the ability to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for choosing the ideal 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 performance life of older fuel and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, lowers wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specifically formulated blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants designed for use in all gas 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 Lubes.
The best oils and lubes with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most crucial component of the whole machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the fact that it could be lowered significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment 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 typical and most destructive 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 2 major issues 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 very little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to secure complex 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 thought but a truth, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer typically has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we make our products to perform as needed by the maker. 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 producers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Overheating, 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 ideal coolant is essential to successful engine service life. 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 prevent the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specs will result in maximum engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination typically is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also 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 deterioration, especially in high temperature 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. 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 triggers fuel degradation 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 special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of 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 Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also gives 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for normal use.
Pristine fuel is crucial for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron ranking. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and frequently eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering 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 range of quality filter-systems which are designed to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to pick 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 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 note that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
