There are four locations to be cared for and handled. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Choosing the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to pick the right oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting the ideal oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not readily available then use the Requirements Charts below to pick the right oil viscosity:.
American Petroleum Institute (API) Specifications.
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 ideal oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the best filtration systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is without a doubt the most crucial part of the whole 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 an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of money thinking about the reality that it could be reduced significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication is to offer the very 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 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 typical and most harmful issues 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 damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two significant issues have become a thing of the past for our customers with not one instance 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 modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator tubes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is essential to protect complicated 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening 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 insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this protection? Because, we manufacture our products to carry out as required by the producer. Regretfully however, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split 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 effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy required specs will result in optimal engine performance and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum performance.
Fuel homes and quality have a massive result on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, particularly in heat locations of marine engines. Seawater can trigger fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microbe growth (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 obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into tiny microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then kept in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also includes cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also offers the operator a chance 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 typical use.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it ensures optimal fuel condition and frequently eliminates pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a variety of quality filter-systems which are designed to eliminate fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate impurities as small as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic below) which leave impurities in the filter housing.
How to pick 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 ranking 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, choose 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 keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally 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 effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
