There are 4 areas to be cared for and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Picking the ideal viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to select the correct oil viscosity. The instructions for picking the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Spec Charts listed below to select the correct 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 help you to pick the ideal oil for your equipment.

The very best oils and lubes with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any lorry is without a doubt the most essential 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 annually is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of money considering the truth that it could be decreased significantly (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the absolute 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 Innovation (Curtin University) in the early 1980’s by Dr Richie and his team developed a protectorate as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and in that time the two most common and most harmful 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 two significant issues have ended up being a thing of the past for our customers with not one circumstances being tape-recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it remained in Henry Ford’s time, with very little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hoses, 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 goes through “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 offers them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the correct products for this security? Since, we produce our products to perform as needed by the producer. Unfortunately though, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system security just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of security is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine operating temperature levels 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 classic cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is crucial 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 prevent the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet needed specifications will lead to optimal engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide optimal performance.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have an enormous result on engine operation. Contamination normally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel 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 heat areas 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 eliminates 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 degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI really rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into tiny microscopic droplets 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 likewise encapsulated thus preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant aspects to not only tidy but completely distribute with an arrangement of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency situation 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 increasing 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.
Pristine fuel is vital for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron score. That’s as close to best 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. Consisting of a washable filter, they are very efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it makes sure optimal fuel condition and regularly gets rid of expensive secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are discovering increasing approval 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 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 small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are included in the filter sock and get rid of the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on 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 design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel to 1 micron with standard port, choose design MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and fuel engines digest actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
