FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the reliability, enhanced efficiency and lower running costs that they need to operate their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are skyrocketing skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every equipment owner needs a program to increase the financial investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus acquiring the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to assist you achieve this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged global commercial chemists to establish their products. Through comprehensive lab testing they have developed fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after accomplishing exceptional outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other market groups which include marine and transport. 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 efficiency that current science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the best oil for your equipment is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

The very best oils and lubricants with the very best purification systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most crucial element of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of money considering the reality that it could be lowered significantly (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous 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 along with 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 damaging 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 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 changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary 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 idea but a reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the seller normally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this defense? Since, we make our products to perform as needed by the producer. Sadly 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 manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best 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 provides cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to assist you prevent the down-time & costly results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will result in optimum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and rust, especially in high temperature areas of marine engines. Salt water can trigger 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 slows down fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration 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 kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through 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 thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. 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 greater efficiency.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed 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 provides 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Pristine fuel is crucial for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency 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 extremely effective and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often gets rid of costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance among 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 range of quality filter-systems which are created 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 little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is available in micron ratings 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 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 particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is crucial to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
