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.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to select the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
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 automobile is without a doubt the most important part 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 huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash considering the fact that it could be decreased considerably (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the very 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 customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most devastating 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 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 really little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to protect complicated 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 idea but a reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the seller usually has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this protection? Due to the fact that, 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 stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, 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 best coolant is important 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 services and products to assist you avoid the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed requirements will lead to optimal engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination might 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 fuel engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, especially in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater can trigger 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 speed up the deterioration of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise offers the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long 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 regular use.
Pristine fuel is essential for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective 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 main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification systems are finding increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety 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 impurities as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product 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 possibility of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities 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 rating 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, choose 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 keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
