There are four locations to be looked after and handled. All of these locations need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Selecting the right viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the right oil for your equipment is to select the right oil viscosity. The instructions for choosing the right oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Requirements Charts listed below to select the right oil viscosity:.
American Petroleum Institute (API) Specs.
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 right oil for your equipment.

The very 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 by far the most important part of the entire machine. It is a reality that 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 throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the truth that it could be decreased significantly (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing commitment is to offer the very 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 Technology (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 customer base since 1982 and because time the two most typical and most destructive issues challenging the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Erosion” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two major issues have ended up being a thing of the past for our clients with not one circumstances being tape-recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it was in Henry Ford’s time, with extremely little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator hose pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important 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.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice 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 selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the right products for this defense? Because, we manufacture our products to carry out as needed by the manufacturer. Sadly however, A NUMBER OF the OEM engines cooling system defense just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stipulated time of defense is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is specifically important. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance services and products to help you avoid the down-time & costly effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy needed specifications will result in optimum engine efficiency and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators require tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties and quality have an enormous effect on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably 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 oil the pump.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and rust, specifically in high temperature locations of marine engines. Seawater can cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the degradation of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. 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 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 small microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then held in suspension within the fuel, finished 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 therefore avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel issues and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant factors to not only tidy but totally distribute with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, right viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and for that reason “hedge” against rising 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.
Beautiful fuel is important for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron ranking. That’s as near ideal as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Including a washable filter, they are very efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel setup it guarantees optimum fuel condition and frequently gets rid of costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification systems are finding increasing approval among mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from little particles.
Microlube has constructed a series of quality filter-systems which are developed 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 pollutants as little as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product used for these bags and is offered in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are contained in the filter sock and get rid of the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
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 ranking 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, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to note that: Diesel and petrol engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently running engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
