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

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The best oils and lubricants with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most important part of the whole machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the fact that it could be minimized significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment 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 along with a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical 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 ended up being 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 secure 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 suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the seller usually has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this defense? Since, we produce our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Regretfully though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split 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 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 product or services to assist you prevent the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy required specs will result in optimum engine performance and durability. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer maximum performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in heat areas 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 growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, executed 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 avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise consists of detergent dispersant elements to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of 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 Hospitals 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 long 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 normal use.
Beautiful fuel is crucial for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and frequently eliminates expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative 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 little particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are created 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 impurities as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to select 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 ranking 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 crucial to note that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
