There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most important element of using the right oil for your equipment is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.

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 automobile is by far the most important 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 a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be minimized drastically (most likely by 75%) by the installation 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 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 along with 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 harmful issues 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 issues have ended up being a distant memory 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 modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to safeguard 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening thought but a reality, and still they go unguarded 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. Keep in mind, the retailer normally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this security? Because, we make our products to perform as needed by the maker. Unfortunately 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 producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is crucial to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important 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 & costly results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will lead to optimum engine performance and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to give optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and rust, especially in heat areas of marine engines. Salt water 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 slows down fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes 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 droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and achieve better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also includes detergent dispersant elements to not only clean but entirely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing 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 Health centers with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for normal use.
Beautiful fuel is necessary for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. That’s as near 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 extremely efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly eliminates costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration 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 little particles.
Microlube has built a variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is readily available in micron scores 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 rating 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 basic 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 necessary to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
