Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance lowers repair costs plus saves on the downtime involved. FluidMasters’ focus is to supply quality product or services for your equipment that will lower your ongoing running and maintenance costs, boost efficiency and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the reliability, enhanced efficiency and lower running costs that they need to operate their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to maximise the financial investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus acquiring the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to assist you attain this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged worldwide industrial chemists to develop their products. Through comprehensive lab testing they have developed fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after achieving outstanding outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups which include marine and transportation. As time has passed and innovation improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest efficiency that present science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The directions for choosing the best 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 – Maximises efficiency life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, final drive engine oils, differentials, decreases wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubricants with the best filtration systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most important component of the whole machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. 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 fact that it could be reduced drastically (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the absolute 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 in addition to 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 devastating 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 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 really little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to secure complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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.
Frightening thought but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant normally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this security? Since, we make our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. Unfortunately 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 effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is essential to effective 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 avoid the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet needed requirements will result in maximum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, specifically in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater can cause 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 growth. The presence 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” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration 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 special 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 environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing 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 20 years. This likewise gives the operator a chance to store fuel for long 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 typical use.
Pristine fuel is important 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 flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are developed 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 impurities as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material used for these bags and is readily available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity 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 on the flow 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, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important 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 effectively operating engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
