FluidMasters’ focus is to provide quality products and services for your equipment that will lower your ongoing running and maintenance costs, increase efficiency and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.

FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can provide equipment owners the reliability, improved efficiency and lower running costs that they need to operate their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus getting the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the products and services to help you accomplish this goal.

FluidMasters have engaged worldwide commercial chemists to develop their products. Through substantial laboratory screening they have developed fluid management products that are a large improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.

In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after accomplishing outstanding results the company broadened its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest efficiency that present science is able to produce.

There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Air System.
Fuel System.
Cooling System.
Oil System.

Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The directions for picking the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Increases efficiency life of older fuel and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, last drive engine oils, differentials, decreases wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. NOTE: To be utilized in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially developed mix of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants developed for use in all gas 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 part of the whole machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be lowered significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate 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 as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common 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 2 major problems have become a thing of the past 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 important to secure complex 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary 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 inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the seller normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the appropriate products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we make our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is particularly 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 right coolant is essential to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to help you avoid the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed specifications will lead to optimum engine efficiency and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube 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 cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on 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 tiny microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product also includes 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 remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also 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.

Pristine fuel is crucial for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron score. 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.
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 commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often gets rid of pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtering 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 constructed a range of quality filter-systems which are developed to get rid of fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of contaminants as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, common 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 circulation 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 basic port, select model MFH 100.
Air Systems.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is crucial to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, leading to less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
