There are four locations to be cared for and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Selecting the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your equipment is to select the appropriate oil viscosity. The directions for choosing the ideal oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not readily available then use the Requirements Charts listed below to select the appropriate 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 choose the ideal oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most crucial element of the entire machine. It is a fact that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the fact that it could be reduced considerably (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the appropriate cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment 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 Innovation (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 client base considering that 1982 and in that time the two most common and most destructive problems confronting the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 significant problems have ended up being 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 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 vital to secure complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head is subjected to “electrolysis”, the disintegrating 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 unprotected as owners take the guidance of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the merchant normally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the appropriate products for this security? Since, we make our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Unfortunately though, MANY of the OEM engines cooling system security just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stipulated time of security is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split 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 ideal coolant is important to successful 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 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 maximum engine efficiency and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel homes and quality have a huge effect on engine operation. Contamination normally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and likewise trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, 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 leak, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water enables microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI really rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through 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 likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and achieve better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely distribute with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities 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 offers the operator a chance to store fuel for long periods and for that reason “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.
Beautiful fuel is imperative for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as close to best 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. Including a washable filter, they are incredibly efficient and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a main filter on a diesel installation it guarantees maximum fuel condition and regularly gets rid of costly secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a variety of quality filter-systems which are created to remove fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters remove contaminants as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is readily available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are included in the filter sock and get rid of the chance of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the circulation rate changed for the viscosity of the fluid to be filtered.
2. Select the micron score 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 standard 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 imperative 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 effectively operating engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
