FluidMasters have engaged global industrial chemists to develop their products. Through extensive lab screening they have developed fluid management products that are a vast improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were presented to farmers and after achieving impressive results the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups which include marine and transport. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products fine-tuned and improved to where they are considered by the company to be of the highest performance that current science has the ability to produce.
There are four areas to be taken care of and handled. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Choosing the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to pick the appropriate oil viscosity. The guidelines 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 listed 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 help you to choose 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 lorry is by far the most crucial element of the entire machine. It is a truth that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the fact that it could be decreased drastically (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate 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 in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base because 1982 and in that time the two most common and most damaging problems challenging the operator as far as the cooling system is worried are “Cavitation Erosion” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two major problems have ended up being a thing of the past 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 necessary to safeguard 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.
Frightening idea but a truth, 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. Remember, the seller normally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the appropriate products for this protection? Because, we make our products to carry out as required by the producer. Regretfully however, MANY 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 efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection 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 crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you prevent the down-time & costly effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that meet required specs will lead to optimal engine performance and toughness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lubricate the pump.
Salt water is the best single source of fouling deposits and rust, especially in high temperature areas of marine engines. Salt water 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 destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel destruction 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 special 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 atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. 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 higher performance.
The product also includes cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel including Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Health centers with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also provides the operator a chance to store fuel for long periods and for that reason “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.
Pristine fuel is essential for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to best as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Including a washable filter, they are incredibly efficient and affordable.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimal removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it makes sure optimal fuel condition and regularly removes costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval 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 developed a range 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 pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
How to pick 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 rating of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel to 1 micron with basic port, choose design MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is essential to keep in mind that: Diesel and fuel engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
