There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the right oil for your equipment is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubes 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 part of the entire machine. It is a truth 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 each year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money considering the truth that it could be reduced drastically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication 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 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 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 2 major problems have become a thing of the past 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 important to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the breaking down 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.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer normally has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this defense? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as required by the producer. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is vital to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet required requirements will lead to optimum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly 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 lube the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism 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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the special 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 environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product also contains detergent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long 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 also 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 normal use.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination 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 removes pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative 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 series of quality filter-systems which are designed to eliminate fungal debris, 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 common product utilized 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 opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on the circulation 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 standard 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 vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
