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

CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most essential part of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused 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 throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be minimized significantly (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing 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 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 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 really 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 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening thought but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant generally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this security? Due to the fact that, we make our products to perform as required by the maker. Sadly 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 temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly essential. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is essential to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you prevent the down-time & pricey results 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 efficiency and durability. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and likewise trigger 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 deterioration, particularly in high temperature locations 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the unique 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 exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
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 20 years. This likewise provides 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 vital for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. 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 exceptionally effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, 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 frequently gets rid of pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance 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 range of quality filter-systems which are developed to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove pollutants as small 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 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 select 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 design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic port, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
