There are four areas to be looked after and handled. All of these areas need to be addressed as recommended in all manufacturer’s equipment handbooks/manuals.
Services and products.
Oil- Choosing the ideal viscocity.
The most important aspect of using the ideal oil for your machinery is to pick the proper oil viscosity. The guidelines for selecting the ideal oil for your machinery and equipment are detailed in your manufacturer’s handbook/manual. If this is not available then use the Requirements Charts listed below to pick the proper 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 choose the ideal oil for your equipment.

The very best oils and lubricants with the very best filtration systems means the very best possible security for your equipment.
Coolant and your engine.
The cooling system of any lorry is by far the most important part of the whole machine. It is a truth that between 60 and 80% of engine and transmission failures are triggered by cooling system “breakdowns”. This has been a massive cost to equipment owners and $1.5 billion dollars yearly is credited to this failure throughout Australia.
This is a massive amount of cash considering the fact that it could be decreased considerably (probably 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 developed 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 developed a protectorate in addition to a flushing product.
FluidMasters have been marketing these products to their customer base since 1982 and because time the two most typical and most harmful problems facing the operator as far as the cooling system is concerned are “Cavitation Disintegration” (Pit holes that drill through the cylinder liners) and “Electrolysis” (the destruction of alloys, i.e. cylinder heads etc). These two significant problems 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 very little changes. Water, a radiator and radiator pipes, fan belts, a radiator cap, and a water pump.
In engines today it is necessary to secure 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 advice of the repairer or the garage owner who offers them the incorrect or insufficient product for their equipment’s cooling systems. Remember, the seller generally has little knowledge of the products he is selling.
So, why is it that FluidMasters can advise you on the proper products for this security? Because, we make our products to perform as required by the manufacturer. Regretfully however, A NUMBER OF the OEM engines cooling system security just DO NOT WORK, or fail before the specified time of security is reached.
Diesel Engine makers have increased engine operating temperature levels to improve engine performance. This means proper cooling system maintenance is particularly important. 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 crucial to successful engine life span. In fact, coolant is just as important 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 extract fuels that meet required specifications will result in optimal engine performance and toughness. All equipment and machinery operators require tidy safe fuel if their machinery is to provide maximum performance.
Fuel residential or commercial properties and quality have an enormous impact on engine operation. Contamination generally is presented during fuel handling, that is, transfer from the refinery to its last storage location might mean many fuel transfers and for that reason more possibilities of contamination.
Fuel quality can substantially affect the performance and maintenance of any diesel or gas engine. Water can trigger excessive sludge and also trigger fuel pump damage in those fuel systems which use fuel oil to lube the pump.
Salt water is the greatest single source of fouling deposits and deterioration, particularly in high temperature areas of marine engines. Salt water 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 retards fungal development. The existence of water from condensation, seal leakage, etc can speed up the destruction 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 triggers fuel destruction and filter/injector clogs.
Gen XI really rids the system of water by encapsulating the water which in turn is focused into tiny microscopic beads through the special chemicals in Gen XI. These beads are then kept in suspension within the fuel, executed the engines filter system and fuel pump where it is exhausted to the atmosphere as oxygen and hydrogen gasses. As well, any sulphur products are also encapsulated hence avoiding sulphurous acid damage to engine part. By neutralising the sulphur content of fuel, Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will overcome fuel problems and attain better burn, amount to combustion, less emissions and higher performance.
The product also consists of detergent dispersant factors to not only tidy but totally distribute with a plan of fluid suspension factors.
Fuel consisting of Gen XI Fuel Stabiliser will stay high quality, proper viscosity, sulphur managed and safe storage for extended periods. FluidMasters have facilities such as banks and Medical facilities with extract in their emergency generators that have been in these units for over twenty years. This also provides the operator a chance to store fuel for extended periods and for that reason “hedge” against rising 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.
Beautiful fuel is necessary for the wellness of your machinery. Western Australian-made Microlube fuel filters offer 100% performance at 1-micron rating. 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 standard. Including a washable filter, they are extremely efficient and cost-efficient.
Microlube Filters (distributed by FluidMasters) are a variety of cost-efficient, low-micron filters for the optimal elimination of suspended particles and basic contaminates in industrial fluids and fuel. When utilized as a primary filter on a diesel setup it ensures optimal fuel condition and regularly eliminates costly secondary filter obstruction.
Microlube’s ingenious fuel filtration systems are discovering increasing approval amongst mining and earthmoving contractors, transport & oilfield operators, farmers and marine equipment owners.
Avoid damage to fuel pumps and injectors from small particles.
Microlube has developed a variety 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, using polyester needle-felt filter socks. Polyester needle felt is the most typical product utilized for these bags and is available in micron ratings of 1, 5, 100 and 150.
Microlube Technical Specifications.
Filtered impurities are contained in the filter sock and eliminate the possibility of contamination, typical with cartridge-type filters, (according to graphic listed below) which leave impurities in the filter real estate.
How to pick a Microlube filter.
1. Select the unit size based upon the flow 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 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 necessary to keep in mind that: Diesel and gas engines absorb literally numerous square meters of air to every litre of fuel burnt.
Clean air filters result in a more efficiently operating engine, leading to less influence on the environment. Lower costs are also the outcome of an efficient air system, not to mention less downtime and loss of earnings.
