You can count on FluidMasters for professional quality fluids for your valuable equipment.
Developed in the early 1980’s, we are West Australian owned and run.
Machinery operators are aware that preventative maintenance reduces repair costs plus saves on the downtime involved. FluidMasters’ focus is to provide quality services and products for your equipment that will lower your ongoing running and maintenance costs, increase performance and extend equipment life … “WE GUARANTEE IT”.
FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can provide equipment owners the reliability, enhanced performance and lower running costs that they need to operate 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 financial investment they make in their equipment through performance and equipment life plus gaining the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the services and products to help you achieve this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged international commercial chemists to develop their products. Through comprehensive lab testing they have created fluid management products that are a large improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after achieving impressive outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and technology improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the greatest performance that existing science is able to produce.
There are four areas to be looked after and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to select the right oil viscosity. The instructions for picking the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual.
Our Oil System maintenance products include:.
8-30 Multifunctional Oil Supplement – Maximises performance life of older fuel and diesel engines (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, lowers wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, prevents oxidation of oil, extends oil drain periods. KEEP IN MIND: To be used in conjunction with engine oils before CJ4 standard ONLY.
Oil Flushing Concentrate – Specifically created blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants developed 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 Lubricants.
The very best oils and lubes with the very best filtering systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most important part of the entire machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be lowered considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the right 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 in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most devastating issues 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 issues 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 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this defense? Because, we produce our products to perform as required by the producer. Sadly though, MANY of OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct 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.
Proper 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 important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you prevent the down-time & costly results 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 performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination typically 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 significantly affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and also 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 heat 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers 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 special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept 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. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also includes cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right 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 also 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 used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for typical use.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very 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 used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and regularly gets rid of costly secondary filter clog.
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 little particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are developed to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used 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, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave pollutants 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 score 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 specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to note that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
