There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed 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 select the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for choosing the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.

CONOCO Oils and Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most important part of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of money thinking about the fact 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 absolute 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 client 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 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 important to secure 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer generally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate 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 specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is crucial to effective engine life span. 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 impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed specifications will result in optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and likewise trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, particularly in high temperature locations of marine engines. Seawater can trigger 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 retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microbe 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 obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel problems and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise provides 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron score. That’s as close to 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 incredibly efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often eliminates pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are developed to get rid of fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of impurities as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is available in micron scores 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 select 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 model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with standard 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 vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently 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 profits.
