FluidMasters’ machinery fluid management can give equipment owners the reliability, enhanced 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 maximise the investment they make in their equipment through efficiency and equipment life plus acquiring the most affordable possible ongoing costs. This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to help you achieve this goal.
FluidMasters have engaged global commercial chemists to develop their products. Through extensive laboratory testing they have developed fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after attaining outstanding outcomes the company expanded its offerings to other market groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and innovation improved, ongoing research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved 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 areas need to be attended to as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most important element of using the best oil for your machinery is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the best 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 – Increases efficiency life of older gas and diesel motor (Pre CJ4 oils), gear trains, transmission, final drive engine oils, differentials, decreases wear and deterioration, neutralises acids, avoids 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 – Specially developed blend of penetrates, lubes and sludge dispersants created for use in all petrol 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 best oils and lubes with the very best purification 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 element of the entire machine. It is a reality that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered 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 throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be reduced dramatically (most likely by 75%) by the installation 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 established 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 established 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 harmful 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 changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is vital to safeguard complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “electrolysis”, the breaking down 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 thought but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer normally 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? Since, we produce our products to perform as needed by the maker. 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 running temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is crucial to successful engine life span. 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 prevent the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that meet needed specs will result in optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, specifically in heat 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe 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 small microscopic beads through the special 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 atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and achieve better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but entirely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise provides the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended 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 normal 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 normal with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety 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 gets rid of pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst 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 variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 contaminants as small as one micron, using 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 contaminants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, which leave contaminants 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 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 vital to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running 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 revenues.
