Every machinery owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus gaining the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the services and products to assist you achieve this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged international industrial chemists to develop their products. Through comprehensive laboratory testing they have created fluid management products that are a large improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after accomplishing outstanding outcomes the company broadened its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products refined and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest performance that current science has the ability to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the best 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 – Maximises performance life of older gas and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, gear boxes, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and corrosion, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain durations. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.

In addition we recommend and sell:.
ProtxL Oil Management System– Bypass Oil Filter.
CONOCO Oils and Lubes.
The very best oils and lubricants with the best purification systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most crucial element 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 massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of money thinking about the fact that it could be minimized drastically (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication 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 in addition to 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 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 two 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 changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to safeguard complex 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary 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 incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we manufacture our products to perform as needed by the producer. Sadly though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is crucial to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as crucial 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 & costly effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed requirements will result in maximum engine performance and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination typically is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration 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 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 likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and achieve much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron score. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely effective and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and often gets rid of costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious 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 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 product used for these bags and is 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 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, 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 gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
