There are 4 areas to be taken care of and handled. All of these areas need to be attended to as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Choosing the best viscocity.
The most crucial element of using the best oil for your equipment is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the best oil for your equipment and equipment are detailed in your maker’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Requirements Charts listed below to pick the correct 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 help you to pick 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 without a doubt the most crucial part of the whole machine. It is a fact that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “malfunctions”. 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 money thinking about the fact that it could be reduced drastically (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters ongoing dedication is to offer the very 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 as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base because 1982 and in that time the two most typical and most harmful issues 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 damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These 2 significant issues have become 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 very little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to protect complex 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 big “battery”. An alloy head can cost anywhere from $1000.00 to $6000.00.
Scary thought but a reality, and still they go unprotected as owners take the advice of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Keep in mind, the merchant usually has little understanding of the products he is offering.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can recommend you on the correct products for this protection? Because, we produce our products to perform as needed by the maker. Unfortunately however, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the stipulated time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine running temperature levels to improve engine effectiveness. This means appropriate cooling system maintenance is specifically crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, disintegration, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Correct coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the best coolant is crucial 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 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 extract fuels that satisfy needed specs will result in optimal engine performance and resilience. All equipment and equipment operators need clean safe fuel if their equipment is to offer maximum performance.
Fuel homes and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is introduced during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or fuel engine. Water can cause extreme sludge and likewise cause fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to oil the pump.
Seawater is the best single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, 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 presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the deterioration of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels are present. In diesel, water allows microorganism growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this triggers fuel deterioration and filter/injector blockages.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is concentrated into small microscopic droplets through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These droplets are then held in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, 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 get rid of fuel issues and achieve better burn, total combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product likewise consists of cleaning agent dispersant aspects to not only clean but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension aspects.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise provides the operator a possibility 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 typical use.
Beautiful fuel is imperative for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% effectiveness at 1-micron rating. That’s as close to ideal as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Consisting of a washable filter, they are incredibly effective and cost-effective.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a series of cost-effective, low-micron filters for the optimal removal of suspended particles and basic contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it makes sure optimal fuel condition and regularly gets rid of costly secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are finding increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transportation & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has constructed a series of quality filter-systems which are designed 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 contaminants as small as one micron, utilizing polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical material used for these bags and is available in micron rankings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are included in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to pick 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 rating of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel down to 1 micron with standard port, select design MFH 100.
FluidMasters do not have specific products for a machines air system, as there are no fluids involved, but it is imperative to keep in mind that: Diesel and fuel engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less impact on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
