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.
Products and Services.
Oil- Choosing the best viscocity.
The most important element of using the best oil for your machinery is to choose the appropriate oil viscosity. The instructions for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Requirements Charts listed below to choose the appropriate 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 best oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubricants with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any car is by far the most important element of the whole machine. It is a reality 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 annually is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money considering the truth that it could be reduced significantly (probably by 75%) by the setup of the appropriate 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 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 considering that 1982 and because time the two most common and most harmful 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 destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two major issues have become a thing of the past for our clients with not one circumstances being taped in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it remained in Henry Ford’s time, with extremely 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 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 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 sells them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the retailer generally has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the appropriate products for this protection? Due to the fact that, we produce our products to carry out as needed by the producer. Regretfully though, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means proper cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best 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 assist you avoid the down-time & expensive impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy needed requirements will lead to maximum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give maximum efficiency.
Fuel homes and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination generally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage location could mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the efficiency and maintenance of any diesel or petrol engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and likewise cause 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 corrosion, specifically in heat 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 gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microorganism 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 blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into tiny 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. Too, 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 conquer fuel issues and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise consists of detergent dispersant elements to not only clean but entirely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Healthcare facilities with extract in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “hedge” versus increasing fuel costs. For long storage of fuel, we recommend that the Gen XI product be used at a mix rate of 30% more than recommended for regular use.
Pristine fuel is crucial for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron score. That’s as near perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Consisting of a washable filter, they are exceptionally efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a main filter on a diesel setup it ensures maximum fuel condition and regularly removes expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance among mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to eliminate fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters eliminate impurities as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product used for these bags and is available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are included in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (as per graphic listed below) which leave impurities in the filter real estate.
How to choose 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 score 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 specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is crucial to note that: Diesel and petrol engines digest literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters lead to a more efficiently operating engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of earnings.
