There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The directions for choosing the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
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 car is by far the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused 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 cash thinking about the truth that it could be minimized drastically (most likely 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 typical and most harmful problems 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 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 extremely 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 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary 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 retailer typically has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this security? Because, we produce our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. 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 makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is essential to successful 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 services and products to help you prevent the down-time & expensive impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required requirements will result in optimum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to offer maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also 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 high temperature locations 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 retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration 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 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 component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also provides 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 typical use.
Beautiful fuel is essential for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are exceptionally 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 commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing approval 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 series 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 pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to choose 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 rating 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 essential to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more efficiently operating 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.
