There are four locations to be taken care of and handled. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Choosing the right viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Spec Charts below to pick the appropriate oil viscosity:.
American Petroleum Institute (API) Specs.
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 right oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubricants 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 crucial element of the whole machine. It is a reality 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 annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the truth that it could be minimized dramatically (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 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 client base since 1982 and because time the two most typical and most devastating problems challenging 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 2 significant problems have become a distant memory for our clients with not one instance being recorded 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 necessary to protect complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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 unguarded as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to perform as needed by the manufacturer. Regretfully though, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is vital to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you prevent the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed requirements will result in optimum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal efficiency.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have a massive effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger 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 rust, specifically in high temperature locations of marine engines. Salt water can trigger 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 presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water allows microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel destruction and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI in fact rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then held in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but entirely distribute with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel including Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate 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 gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and therefore “hedge” versus rising fuel costs. For long storage of fuel, we recommend that the Gen XI product be utilized at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for normal use.
Beautiful fuel is important for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron score. That’s as close to ideal 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. Including a washable filter, they are exceptionally efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel setup it guarantees optimum fuel condition and frequently removes pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are discovering increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has built a series of quality filter-systems which are designed 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, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material utilized for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are consisted of in the filter sock and get rid of the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the flow rate changed 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 to 1 micron with standard 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 important to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest actually hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
