Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance reduces repair work costs plus saves on the downtime involved. FluidMasters’ focus is to supply quality product or services for your equipment that will decrease your ongoing running and maintenance costs, increase efficiency and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.

FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the dependability, improved 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 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 achieve this objective.

FluidMasters have engaged international industrial chemists to establish their products. Through comprehensive laboratory screening they have created 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 accomplishing outstanding outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest efficiency that current science has the ability to produce.

There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Air System.
Fuel System.
Cooling System.
Oil System.

Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to choose the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines 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 – Maximises efficiency life of older fuel and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. NOTE: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specifically created blend of penetrates, lubricants and sludge dispersants created for use in all gas and diesel engines, gear trains, transmission, final drive differentials.
In addition we recommend and sell:.

ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the best filtering systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most essential part of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be lowered considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most damaging 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 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 modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to safeguard 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea 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. Remember, the seller normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this defense? Since, we produce our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. 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 running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.

Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides 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 optimal engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, especially in heat 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration 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 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 small microscopic droplets through the special 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 atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product also includes detergent dispersant elements to not only tidy but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also 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 regular use.

Beautiful fuel is imperative for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness 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 exceptionally efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering 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 small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are created to get rid of fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of contaminants 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 readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to choose 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, choose model MFH 100.
Air Systems.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is imperative to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
