FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can offer equipment owners the dependability, boosted efficiency and lower running costs that they need to operate their equipment in this competitive environment. Costs are skyrocketing skywards with the cost of fuel and oil spiraling out of control. Every machinery owner needs a program to maximise the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus getting the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the products and services to assist you achieve this objective.
FluidMasters have engaged international commercial chemists to develop 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 attaining exceptional results the company expanded its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation enhanced, ongoing research has seen these products refined and enhanced to where they are considered by the company to be of the greatest efficiency that present science is able to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The instructions for picking the right 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 filtration 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 essential element of the entire machine. It is a fact that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the truth that it could be decreased drastically (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 damaging 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 2 major issues 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 really little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to protect 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.
Scary thought but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, 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 security? Due to the fact that, 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 fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is essential to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance products and services 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 meet required specifications will lead to optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer 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 location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and also trigger 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, specifically in heat 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 slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microorganism development (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, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product also consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
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 Medical facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also gives the operator a chance 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is important 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 regular with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very effective 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 used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often removes pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval 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 developed a range of quality filter-systems which are created to eliminate fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate impurities as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used for these bags and is readily 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, 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 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 particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
