In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after achieving exceptional outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products refined and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest efficiency that existing science is able to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be attended to as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the best oil for your machinery is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubricants with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most crucial element of the entire machine. It is a truth 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 cash considering the reality that it could be lowered significantly (most likely by 75%) by the installation 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 client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most destructive issues 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 issues have ended up being 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 very 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 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.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go vulnerable 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 merchant usually has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
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. 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 makers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice 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 crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you prevent the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet required requirements will result in maximum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, especially in high temperature locations 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The presence 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 growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the unique 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 tired 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 material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty 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.
Pristine fuel is necessary for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as close to 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 efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and regularly eliminates pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance 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 built a variety 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 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 available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants 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 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 necessary to note that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
