Every machinery owner needs a program to maximise the investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus acquiring the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to assist you achieve this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged worldwide industrial chemists to establish their products. Through extensive laboratory screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after attaining exceptional outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the greatest performance that current science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most essential element of using the best oil for your machinery is to choose the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for choosing the best 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 – Increases performance life of older fuel and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and rust, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially formulated blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants developed for use in all petrol 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 very best oils and lubes 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 element of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the fact that it could be lowered dramatically (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous 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 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 challenging 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 necessary 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the advice 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 typically has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this defense? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as needed by the producer. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically essential. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is important to effective engine life span. 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 fulfill needed specifications will result in optimum engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel 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, specifically in heat 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 slows down fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
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 held in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and achieve much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise includes detergent 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, correct viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty 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 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 score. That’s as near 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 very effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, 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 guarantees optimum fuel condition and regularly gets rid of expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious 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 constructed a range of quality filter-systems which are developed 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, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is offered 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 choose 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 score 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 imperative to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, leading to less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
