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 right viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The instructions for choosing the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubricants with the very best purification systems means the very best possible security 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 fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money thinking about the fact that it could be lowered significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment 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 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 typical and most devastating problems confronting 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 really little modifications. 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 is subjected to “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 thought but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer generally 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 make 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 stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially essential. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to help you avoid the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy required specifications will lead to optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger 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 rust, especially in high temperature areas of marine engines. Seawater can trigger fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads 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 preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only clean but entirely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long 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 likewise provides the operator an opportunity 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 utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Beautiful fuel is imperative 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 efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and frequently removes expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 pollutants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material utilized for these bags and is offered in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants 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 design # – 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 imperative to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently 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.
