Machinery operators are well aware that preventative maintenance decreases repair work costs plus saves on the downtime involved. FluidMasters’ focus is to provide quality product or services for your equipment that will decrease your continuous running and maintenance costs, boost performance and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can provide equipment owners the dependability, enhanced performance and lower running costs that they need to run their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every equipment owner needs a program to increase the financial investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus getting the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to help you attain this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged global industrial chemists to establish their products. Through substantial laboratory screening they have formulated 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 exceptional outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology enhanced, continuous research has seen these products fine-tuned and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest performance that current science is able to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be attended to as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the right oil for your equipment is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting the right 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 performance life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, final drive engine oils, differentials, decreases wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
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 part of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered 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 cash considering the truth that it could be minimized significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication is to offer the absolute 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 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 destructive problems facing 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 2 major problems 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 very little modifications. 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 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.
Frightening thought but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer 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 defense? Due to the fact that, we manufacture our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, 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 right coolant is crucial to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you prevent the down-time & costly impacts 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 performance and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities 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 lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, 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 retards fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also consists of cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also provides 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 normal use.
Pristine fuel is crucial for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are exceptionally efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of affordable, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and frequently eliminates costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has built a series of quality filter-systems which are designed 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 impurities as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material used for these bags and is readily 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 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 particular 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 digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
