There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most important element of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The directions for picking the ideal 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 petrol and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, reduces wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially created blend of penetrates, lubricants and sludge dispersants created 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 Lubes.
The very best oils and lubricants with the best filtering systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is without a doubt the most important component of the whole machine. It is a fact 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 across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be lowered drastically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication is to offer the 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 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 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 ended up being 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 really little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to secure complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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 truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we manufacture our products to perform as needed by the maker. Regretfully 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 correct cooling system maintenance is especially important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is vital to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will lead to optimal engine efficiency and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, especially in high temperature locations of marine engines. Seawater 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 growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water allows microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes 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 droplets through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise includes cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long 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 gives 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 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 effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimal removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering 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 variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 impurities as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material used for these bags and is available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to choose a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon 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, 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 note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
