This is where FluidMasters have the products and services to assist you attain this objective.
FluidMasters have engaged international commercial chemists to develop their products. Through extensive laboratory testing they have developed fluid management products that are a large improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after achieving outstanding results the company broadened its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and technology enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest performance that present science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for choosing the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Increases performance life of older gas and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. KEEP IN MIND: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The best oils and lubricants with the very best filtering 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 entire 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 an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be reduced drastically (probably by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment 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 client base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most destructive 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 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 very little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to protect complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “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.
Scary thought but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the guidance 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 seller typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this protection? Because, we make our products to perform as needed by the producer. Unfortunately though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal 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 products and services to assist you prevent the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet needed specifications will result in maximum engine performance and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically 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 retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism growth (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 clogs.
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 held in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also includes detergent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also offers the operator a chance 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 imperative for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness 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 incredibly efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of affordable, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and regularly gets rid of pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing approval 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 remove fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is offered 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, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants 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 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 standard 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 imperative to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
