There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most essential element of using the right oil for your machinery is to pick the right oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Increases efficiency life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, minimizes wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubricants with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most essential element of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the truth that it could be lowered considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous 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 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 two major problems have become a thing of the past for our clients 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 safeguard complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “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 reality, 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 merchant usually has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this defense? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as needed by the maker. Regretfully 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 operating temperatures to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically essential. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed requirements will result in optimum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery 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 destination could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise 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, specifically in heat 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. 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 causes fuel degradation and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept 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. 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 problems and achieve much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant aspects to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, right viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise offers the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “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 crucial for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely effective and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly removes pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance 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 developed a variety of quality filter-systems which are designed 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 impurities as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility 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 upon 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 model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with standard 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 crucial 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 result in a more effectively operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
