There are four areas to be cared for 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 element of using the right oil for your equipment is to choose the appropriate oil viscosity. The instructions for choosing the right oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not offered then use the Spec Charts listed below to choose 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 help you to select the right oil for your equipment.

Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is without a doubt the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are brought on by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is attributed to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the reality that it could be lowered drastically (most likely 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 along with a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and because time the two most common and most destructive problems facing 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 problems have become a thing of the past for our customers 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 really little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator tubes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is essential to protect 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 reality, and still they go unguarded as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the seller generally has little understanding of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can encourage you on the appropriate products for this security? Because, we manufacture our products to carry out as required by the producer. Unfortunately however, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system security just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stated time of security is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine efficiency. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, split heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are timeless cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is important to effective engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters supplies cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to help you prevent the down-time & pricey results of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill required specifications will result in optimum engine performance and durability. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel properties and quality have a huge impact on engine operation. Contamination generally 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 chances of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance 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.
Seawater is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and corrosion, specifically in heat 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 eliminates water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and slows down fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leak, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. 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 triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI really rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into small microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, performed 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 hence preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise includes cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only tidy but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will remain high quality, appropriate viscosity, sulphur managed 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 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is vital for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron rating. That’s as near best 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. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimum removal of suspended particles and basic contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it guarantees optimum fuel condition and frequently eliminates pricey secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval among mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has built a range of quality filter-systems which are designed to get rid of fungal particles, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most common material utilized for these bags and is offered 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 opportunity of contamination, common with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave contaminants 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 rating 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, choose model MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is vital to keep in mind that: Diesel and petrol engines digest actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running engine, leading to less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of revenues.
