There are 4 areas to be cared for and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Picking the right viscocity.
The most essential aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to choose the proper oil viscosity. The directions for selecting the right 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 choose the proper 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 choose 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 without a doubt the most essential element of the entire machine. It is a fact that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the truth that it could be minimized significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication 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 along with a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base given that 1982 and in that time the two most common and most devastating problems confronting the operator as far as the cooling system is worried are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 major problems have ended up being a distant memory for our clients with not one circumstances being tape-recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it was 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 important to protect complicated 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary idea but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer usually has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the proper products for this protection? Because, we make our products to carry out as needed by the producer. Unfortunately however, A NUMBER 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 running temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means proper cooling system maintenance is particularly essential. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is essential to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you avoid the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet needed specs will result in optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer maximum efficiency.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have a huge result on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube 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 slows down fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel degradation and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI in fact rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held 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. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product also includes detergent dispersant aspects to not only clean but entirely distribute with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also provides the operator a possibility to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “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 regular use.
Pristine fuel is crucial for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Containing a washable filter, they are very effective and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures optimum fuel condition and often removes expensive secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are discovering increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & 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 created 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 contaminants as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are consisted of in the filter sock and remove the possibility of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic listed below) which leave contaminants in the filter real estate.
How to choose 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 ranking 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, choose design MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is crucial to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of earnings.
