You can rely on FluidMasters for professional quality fluids for your important equipment.
Developed in the early 1980’s, we are West Australian owned and run.
Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance lowers repair costs plus saves on the downtime involved. FluidMasters’ focus is to supply quality product or services for your equipment that will lower your ongoing running and maintenance costs, increase efficiency and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can provide equipment owners the reliability, boosted efficiency and lower running costs that they need to run their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are soaring skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to increase the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus acquiring the lowest possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to help you accomplish this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged worldwide industrial chemists to establish their products. Through substantial lab screening they have formulated fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after accomplishing impressive results the company broadened its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest efficiency that existing science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The directions for picking the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Increases efficiency life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, decreases wear and rust, neutralises acids, avoids oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. NOTE: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specially formulated mix of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants created for use in all gas 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 best oils and lubes with the best purification systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt 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 “breakdowns”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money considering 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 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 typical and most destructive issues 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 issues have ended up being a thing of the past 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 extremely 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 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the advice 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 seller generally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the appropriate products for this defense? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as needed by the producer. Unfortunately though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken 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 best coolant is important to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you avoid the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed specifications will lead to maximum engine efficiency and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and rust, particularly in high temperature 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 development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. 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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product also includes cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also 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 normal use.
Pristine fuel is necessary for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency 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 extremely efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and frequently eliminates expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification 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 developed a range of quality filter-systems which are created 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 pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is offered in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants in the filter housing.
How to pick 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, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is necessary to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
