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

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most important 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 an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the truth that it could be decreased considerably (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the best cooling system products that can be produced. The products FluidMasters market were developed 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 developed 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 typical and most devastating issues 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 two major issues have ended up being 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 vital 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this security? Due to the fact that, we make our products to perform as required 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 makers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is crucial to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to assist you prevent the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required specifications will lead to maximum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and likewise 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 deterioration, 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe 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 unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and accomplish better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise provides the operator an opportunity 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is necessary for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious 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 small particles.
Microlube has constructed 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 small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used for these bags and is readily available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to pick 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 model # – 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 necessary to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
