There are four areas to be taken care of and managed. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Picking the right viscocity.
The most important element of using the right oil for your machinery is to select the proper oil viscosity. The directions for picking the right oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Specification Charts listed below to select the proper 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 help you to select the right oil for your equipment.

The very best oils and lubricants with the best filtration systems means the best possible defense 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 between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a huge cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a huge amount of cash considering the truth that it could be lowered drastically (probably by 75%) by the installation of the proper 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 along with 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 issues challenging the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 major issues have ended up being a distant memory for our clients with not one circumstances being tape-recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it remained in Henry Ford’s time, with extremely little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator hose pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is essential to secure 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 huge “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Frightening idea but a reality, and still they go unprotected as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the retailer usually has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this defense? Because, we make our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Regretfully though, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system defense just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of defense is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, broken heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is vital to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to assist you avoid the down-time & pricey impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required specs will result in maximum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to offer maximum efficiency.
Fuel homes and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect 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 lubricate 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 existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed upon the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector obstructions.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then held in suspension within the fuel, performed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely distribute with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have centers such as banks and Healthcare facilities with distillate in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise offers the operator a possibility to store fuel for extended 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 normal use.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Containing a washable filter, they are exceptionally effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and regularly removes pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s innovative fuel filtration systems are discovering increasing acceptance amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are created 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 small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common product utilized for these bags and is available in micron scores of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained 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 housing.
How to select a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on the circulation rate changed for the viscosity of the fluid to be filtered.
2. Select the micron ranking of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the model # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel 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 imperative to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
