There are 4 areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Picking the right viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the right oil for your machinery is to select the right oil viscosity. The directions for choosing the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Specification Charts below to select the right 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 assist you to pick the right oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the best filtration systems means the best possible defense for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most crucial part of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars every year is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be reduced significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing 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 Innovation (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 customer base given that 1982 and because time the two most common and most destructive issues challenging the operator as far as the cooling system is worried are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 major issues have become a thing of the past for our customers with not one instance being 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 hose pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to secure 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 huge “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 guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the seller normally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the right products for this defense? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to carry out as needed by the producer. Sadly 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 manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Overheating, 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 effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial 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 & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy needed specs will lead to optimal engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination normally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably 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 best single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in high temperature 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microbe development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI in fact 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 kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the environment as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise includes detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but completely distribute with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise offers the operator a possibility 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is important for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to best 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 economical.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a series of economical, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel setup it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly gets rid of expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has constructed a series of quality filter-systems which are developed to remove fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are contained in the filter sock and remove the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic below) which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to select 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 rating of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with basic port, select model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to keep in mind that: Diesel and fuel engines absorb actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
