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

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most crucial part of the entire machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered 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 fact that it could be minimized considerably (probably by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication 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 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 typical and most harmful 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 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 very little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to secure complicated 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.
Scary thought but a truth, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer usually has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this protection? Since, we produce our products to perform as required by the producer. 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 manufacturers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is vital to effective engine life span. 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 assist you prevent the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill required specifications will lead to optimal engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance 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 lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in heat locations 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 development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically 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 blockages.
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, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and accomplish better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise offers 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Beautiful fuel is crucial for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as close to 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 exceptionally efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and frequently gets rid of pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative 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 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 contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants 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 ranking 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 crucial to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines digest 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 effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
