There are four locations to be taken care of and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Choosing the ideal viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for picking the ideal oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Requirements Charts below to pick 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 choose the ideal oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible defense for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is without a doubt the most important part of the whole machine. It is a truth that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the truth that it could be minimized significantly (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 as well as 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 issues facing 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 two significant issues have ended up being a distant memory for our customers with not one circumstances being taped 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 safeguard 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening thought but a reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the merchant generally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can encourage you on the correct products for this defense? Since, we produce our products to carry out as needed by the manufacturer. Regretfully however, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system defense just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stated time of defense is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is vital to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to help you avoid the down-time & pricey effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed specifications will result in optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to provide optimal efficiency.
Fuel homes and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced 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 significantly affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and rust, especially in high temperature locations 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 leak, etc can accelerate the deterioration of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused 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 atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and accomplish better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant elements to not only clean but completely distribute with a plan of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel including Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended periods and therefore “hedge” against 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 typical use.
Beautiful fuel is essential for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Including 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 optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often eliminates pricey secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration 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 little particles.
Microlube has constructed a series of quality filter-systems which are developed to get rid of fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of impurities as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is offered in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and get rid of the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (as per graphic below) which leave impurities in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on 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 model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel to 1 micron with standard 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 essential to note that: Diesel and fuel engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
