FluidMasters have engaged global commercial chemists to establish their products. Through extensive laboratory screening they have formulated 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 expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest efficiency that existing science is able to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to choose the correct oil viscosity. The instructions for choosing the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.

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 vehicle is without a doubt the most essential part of the entire machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the fact that it could be minimized significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing 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 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 damaging 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 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 modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is essential to safeguard complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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 idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this defense? Because, we manufacture our products to perform as required by the producer. 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 temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant selection 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 essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help 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 required specs will lead to optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly 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 lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism 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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise includes cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled 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 twenty years. This likewise offers the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and for that reason “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 typical use.
Pristine fuel is necessary for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, 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 ensures optimum fuel condition and frequently removes costly secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & 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 remove fungal particles, 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, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to choose 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 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 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 necessary to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
