There are 4 areas to be taken care of and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all producer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Products and Services.
Oil- Picking the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the correct oil viscosity. The directions for picking the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your producer’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Specification Charts listed below to pick the correct 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 pick the ideal oil for your equipment.

The very best oils and lubes with the very best purification systems means the very best possible protection for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any vehicle is by far the most crucial component of the entire machine. It is a fact that in between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “malfunctions”. This has been an enormous cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars each year is attributed to this failure across Australia.
This is an enormous amount of cash thinking about the reality that it could be minimized considerably (probably by 75%) by the installation of the correct 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 as well as 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 harmful problems 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 2 significant problems have ended up being a distant memory for our customers with not one instance being 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 pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to safeguard 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.
Frightening idea but a truth, and still they go unguarded as owners take the suggestions of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the inaccurate or inadequate product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, 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 manufacture our products to carry out as needed by the producer. Sadly though, MUCH OF the OEM engines cooling system protection just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of protection is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is especially crucial. Getting too hot, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are traditional cooling system failures.
Proper coolant selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is essential to successful engine service life. In fact, coolant is just as crucial as the quality of your fuel or lubricating oil.
FluidMasters offers cooling system preventative maintenance products and services to assist you avoid the down-time & expensive effects of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only distillate fuels that fulfill needed requirements will lead to maximum engine performance and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require clean safe fuel if their machinery is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel homes and quality have a massive impact on engine operation. Contamination usually is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its final storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can significantly affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and likewise trigger 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, especially in heat areas of marine engines. Seawater can trigger 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, especially if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microbe growth (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” feed on the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel deterioration and filter/injector clogs.
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 kept in suspension within the fuel, finished the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Also, 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 overcome fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater performance.
The product likewise contains detergent dispersant factors to not only clean but totally disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing 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 Medical facilities with distillate in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This likewise provides the operator an opportunity to store fuel for extended 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is essential for the well-being of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. That’s as near best as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is regular with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being standard. Containing a washable filter, they are very effective and economical.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum removal of suspended particles and general contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it ensures maximum fuel condition and often removes expensive secondary filter blockage.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification systems are discovering increasing approval among mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Prevent damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has developed a range of quality filter-systems which are developed 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 typical material used for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are included in the filter sock and eliminate the opportunity of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (based on graphic listed below) which leave impurities in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based on 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 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 essential to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally hundreds of square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters lead to a more effectively running engine, resulting in less influence on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
