There are 4 locations to be cared for and managed. All of these locations need to be taken care of as recommended in all maker’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Picking the ideal viscocity.
The most crucial aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to choose the correct oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your maker’s handbook/manual. If this is not readily available then use the Spec Charts below to choose 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 assist you to pick the ideal oil for your equipment.

The best oils and lubricants 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 without a doubt 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 annually is credited to this failure across Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash thinking about the fact that it could be lowered considerably (most likely by 75%) by the installation of the correct cooling system products.
FluidMasters continuous commitment is to offer the absolute 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 in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their client base considering that 1982 and because time the two most typical and most damaging issues confronting the operator as far as the cooling system is worried are “Cavitation Erosion” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the damage of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two significant issues have ended up being a distant memory for our clients with not one circumstances being tape-recorded in over 26 years.
The design of cooling systems today is as it was in Henry Ford’s time, with very little modifications. Water, a radiator and radiator tubes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is important to protect complex alloy heads and multi valve systems. An alloy head goes through “electrolysis”, the breaking down 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 vulnerable as owners take the recommendations of the repairer or the garage owner who sells them the incorrect 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 advise you on the correct products for this protection? Since, we make our products to perform as needed by the maker. Sadly though, A LOT 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 running temperatures to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is particularly crucial. Overheating, overcooling, pitting, cavitation, erosion, cracked heads, piston seizures, and plugged radiators are classic cooling system failures.
Appropriate coolant choice and maintenance of the system is the owner’s choice and the ideal coolant is vital to successful 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 services and products 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 fulfill needed specs will result in maximum engine efficiency and durability. All equipment and machinery operators need clean safe fuel if their machinery is to give optimal efficiency.
Fuel properties 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 might mean many fuel transfers and therefore more opportunities of contamination.
Fuel quality can considerably affect the efficiency 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 greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, particularly in heat locations of marine engines. Seawater can cause fuel injector and piston ring groove deposits and wear in fuel system plunger and barrel assemblies.
Gen XI gets rid of water from fuel, fuel tanks, fuel lines and retards fungal development. The presence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can accelerate the degradation of the fuel, particularly if high sulphur levels exist. In diesel, water permits microorganism development (eg: Hormoconis resinae and Cladisporium resinae). These “diesel bugs” eat the fuel and propagate in the water and this causes fuel degradation and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI actually rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into small microscopic droplets through the unique 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. Too, any sulphur products are likewise encapsulated therefore preventing sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will conquer fuel issues and attain much better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and greater efficiency.
The product likewise contains cleaning agent dispersant elements to not only clean but completely disperse with an arrangement of fluid suspension elements.
Fuel including Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, correct viscosity, sulphur controlled and safe storage for long periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Hospitals with distillate in their emergency situation generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This likewise gives the operator an opportunity to store fuel for long periods and therefore “hedge” against 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 regular use.
Beautiful fuel is crucial for the wellness 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 circulation rates of 100 or 150 litres per minute being basic. Containing a washable filter, they are very efficient and economical.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a range of economical, low-micron filters for the maximum elimination of suspended particles and general contaminates in commercial fluids and fuel. When used as a primary filter on a diesel installation it makes sure maximum fuel condition and often gets rid of costly secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel purification systems are finding increasing acceptance 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 developed a range 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 product used for these bags and is readily available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered contaminants are included in the filter sock and remove the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic below) which leave contaminants in the filter housing.
How to choose 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 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 crucial to note that: Diesel and fuel engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more effectively running engine, resulting in less effect on the environment. Lower costs are likewise the result of an effective air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of profits.
