The best oils and lubricants with the very best purification systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any automobile is by far the most crucial part of the entire machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are caused by cooling system “breakdowns”. 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 fact that it could be lowered dramatically (most likely by 75%) by the setup of the proper cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous dedication 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 as well as a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base because 1982 and because time the two most typical and most harmful problems 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 destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two major problems have ended up being a distant memory for our customers with not one circumstances 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 tubes, 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 is subjected to “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 idea but a truth, and still they go vulnerable 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 merchant typically has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can encourage you on the proper products for this security? Because, we make our products to perform as needed by the producer. Regretfully however, A LOT OF the OEM engines cooling system security just DO NOT WORK, or stop working before the specified time of security is reached.
Diesel Engine producers have increased engine running temperatures to improve engine efficiency. This means correct 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 selection and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the right coolant is vital to effective engine life span. 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 impacts of coolant-related engine/ transmission failures.
Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser and your engine.
Only extract fuels that satisfy needed requirements will result in optimum engine performance and sturdiness. All equipment and equipment operators need tidy safe fuel if their equipment is to offer optimal performance.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have an enormous result on engine operation. Contamination typically is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage destination could mean many fuel transfers and therefore more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger extreme sludge and also trigger 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 high temperature locations of marine engines. Seawater can trigger 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 presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction of the fuel, specifically if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water allows microbe 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 clogs.
Gen XI in fact 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, carried through the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is tired to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. Too, any sulphur products are also encapsulated thus avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine component parts. By neutralising the sulphur material of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will get rid of fuel problems and accomplish much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but completely disperse with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel containing Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Health centers with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over 20 years. This also gives the operator a chance to store fuel for extended periods and therefore “hedge” against increasing 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 typical use.
Pristine fuel is imperative for the well-being of your equipment. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% efficiency at 1-micron ranking. That’s as close to perfect as you are going to get. Bowser or fuel-tank fitting is typical with flow rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Containing a washable filter, they are extremely effective and affordable.
Microlube Filters (dispersed by FluidMasters) are a range of affordable, low-micron filters for the optimum elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it ensures optimum fuel condition and often eliminates pricey secondary filter clog.
Microlube’s innovative fuel purification 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 range of quality filter-systems which are designed to remove fungal particles, 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 product utilized for these bags and is offered in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are consisted of in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic listed below) which leave contaminants in the filter real estate.
How to select 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 ranking of the bag to be fitted.
3. Select Port Position.
4. Select the design # – eg filter 100L/min of diesel to 1 micron with basic 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 imperative to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines digest literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Tidy air filters result in a more effectively running 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 earnings.
