This is where FluidMasters have the product or services to help you achieve this objective.
FluidMasters have engaged worldwide industrial chemists to establish their products. Through substantial lab testing they have formulated fluid management products that are a huge improvement on existing competitive products in the market place.
In February 1988 these products were introduced to farmers and after attaining outstanding results the company broadened its offerings to other industry groups that include marine and transportation. As time has passed and innovation improved, continuous research has seen these products refined and improved to where they are thought about by the company to be of the highest performance that present science is able to produce.
There are 4 areas to be looked after and managed. All of these areas need to be taken care of as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Choosing the best viscocity.
The most essential element of using the best oil for your machinery is to pick the right oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the best oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not readily available then use the Specification Charts below to pick the right 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 assist you to select the best oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubes with the best filtration systems means the best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any lorry is by far the most essential part of the entire machine. It is a truth that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars annually is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of money thinking about the truth that it could be decreased significantly (probably by 75%) by the installation of the right cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous 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 Innovation (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 given that 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most devastating 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 damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 major issues have ended up being a thing of the past for our clients with not one instance being tape-recorded 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 pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to protect complicated alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head undergoes “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 reality, and still they go unprotected as owners take the recommendations 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 merchant generally has little knowledge of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can encourage you on the right products for this protection? Since, we manufacture our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Unfortunately however, MANY of the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the stated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine manufacturers have increased engine operating temperatures to improve engine effectiveness. This means correct cooling system maintenance is especially essential. 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 best coolant is important to effective engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as essential as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters provides cooling system preventative maintenance product or services to help you prevent the down-time & costly impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that satisfy required requirements will lead to optimal engine performance and durability. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel homes and quality have an enormous result on engine operation. Contamination generally is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably impact the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause excessive sludge and also 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, especially in high temperature 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 removes water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal growth. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the destruction of the fuel, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water enables microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel destruction and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI in fact rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into tiny microscopic beads through the unique chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then kept in suspension within the fuel, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel issues and achieve much better burn, total combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product also includes detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but entirely 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 centers such as banks and Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also offers the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and therefore “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 normal use.
Pristine fuel is important for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron rating. That’s as near ideal as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is normal with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and economical.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a series of economical, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it guarantees optimal fuel condition and regularly gets rid of costly secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are discovering increasing approval 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 series of quality filter-systems which are created to get rid of fungal debris, suspended particles, drop-out in diesel fuels and other particles such as sand, dust, sludge and excess water. The filters get rid of pollutants as little as one micron, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered pollutants are consisted of in the filter sock and get rid of the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (as per graphic below) which leave pollutants in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the flow 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 design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel to 1 micron with standard port, choose design MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have particular products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is important to keep in mind that: Diesel and fuel engines digest actually numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively operating engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are also the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
