There are four locations to be taken care of and managed. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the right oil for your equipment is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting the right oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your maker’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Spec Charts listed below to pick the correct 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 help you to pick the right oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible defense for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most crucial element of the entire machine. It is a truth that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of money thinking about the fact that it could be minimized significantly (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication is to offer the absolute 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 Innovation (Curtin University) in the early 1980’s by Dr Richie and his team established a protectorate in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base since 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most destructive issues facing the operator as far as the cooling system is worried 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 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 changes. Water, a radiator and radiator tubes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to safeguard 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.
Scary idea 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. Remember, the retailer usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can encourage you on the correct products for this defense? Because, we manufacture our products to carry out as needed by the maker. Unfortunately however, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system defense just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the specified time of defense is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right 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 provides cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you avoid the down-time & expensive results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that fulfill needed specs will lead to optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require clean safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have a huge result on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and also 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, particularly in heat locations 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water permits microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI really 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 kept in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product also contains cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only clean but totally disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also provides the operator a possibility to store fuel for long 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 crucial for the wellness of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. 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 basic. Including a washable filter, they are exceptionally effective and affordable.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a variety of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimum fuel condition and often removes expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification 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 variety of quality filter-systems which are created 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 contaminants 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 available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and get rid of the chance of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (as per graphic listed below) which leave contaminants in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on the circulation rate adjusted 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 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 note that: Diesel and gas engines digest actually hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of earnings.
