There are 4 areas to be taken care of and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the best viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the best oil for your machinery is to select the proper oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not readily available then use the Requirements Charts listed below to select the proper oil viscosity:.
American Petroleum Institute (API) Requirements.
Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Charts.
If in doubt then please contact FluidMasters on 1300 302 949 and we will assist you to pick the best oil for your equipment.

The 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 lorry is by far the most essential component of the entire machine. It is a reality that in 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 yearly is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash considering the truth that it could be reduced significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment 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 Innovation (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 given that 1982 and in that time the two most common and most damaging problems confronting the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two major problems have ended up being a thing of the past for our clients with not one circumstances being taped in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it remained in Henry Ford’s time, with really little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator tubes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the breaking down 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 reality, and still they go vulnerable as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the seller typically has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this protection? Because, we manufacture our products to perform as required by the producer. Unfortunately though, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken 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 best 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 product or services to assist you avoid the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill required specifications will lead to optimal engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal performance.
Fuel homes and quality have a massive result on engine operation. Contamination typically is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to oil the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, particularly in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater 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 retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation 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 upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI in fact rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into small microscopic droplets through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely distribute with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise offers the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and therefore “hedge” against increasing 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 imperative for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as near best as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Consisting of a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel setup it guarantees optimal fuel condition and regularly removes expensive secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtering 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 small particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are created to eliminate fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate pollutants as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are included in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (as per graphic listed below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
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 basic 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 imperative to note that: Diesel and fuel engines absorb actually numerous 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 likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
