About FST

Listen. Understand. Act.

FST GmbH Filtrations-Separations-Technik, based in Essen and Netphen, is an independent manufacturer of high-quality components for the treatment of compressed air and technical gases. Our product portfolio includes compressed air dryers, filters, and coolers as well as breathing air systems, nitrogen generators and condensate technology.

With over 40 specialists, FST offers comprehensive services ranging from purchase consultation to installation and maintenance. Every action in our company is guided by the motto: "Listen. Understand. Act." It makes us who we are.

Our strategic partner: W&Z Rohrsystem-Technik

Partnerships make us strong: FST works hand in hand with the company W&Z Rohrsystem-Technik GmbH as a strategic partner in Netphen-Deuz. A mature business relationship connects and benefits both partner companies. The headquarters, production areas and warehouses of both entities are located on the same site.

Since 1988, W&Z Rohrsystem-Technik GmbH has specialised in the production of steel pipelines, pressure vessels and plants. In its production facility, the mechanical engineering company manufactures high-quality compressed air systems and other machineries weighing up to 70 tonnes, with pipe diameters of 4,000 mm, and for pressures of up to 1,000 bar.

In depth production + experience in R&D = technology Made in Germany

Thanks to W&Z, the in-house production depth of our core products extends to the lowest level of unfinished parts: sheets, tubes, castings and unfinished pre-finished parts. On request, we can use all manufacturing processes imaginable in metalworking and welding assembly for both steel and stainless steel. This applies to vessel and plant construction as well as surface treatment.

At W&Z, the comprehensive depth of in-house production capability is the perfect match for FST’s development and project knowledge. This enables us to offer a unique combination of reliability, fast delivery times, and countless options for customisation. The result: high-quality technology made in Germany.

History, Values & Vision

FST has been expanding continuously since 2009. Our area of expertise is purification of compressed air and technical gases. This is a growing market segment in which innovation, efficiency and sustainability are reliable keys to success. Technology and economic efficiency alone, however, do not satisfy our customers.

It is people who build business relationships and success. Our highest priority is that customers are satisfied not only with our products, but also with our advice, our service and especially with our employees – even long after a purchase.

Why FST? 7 good reasons


All-round service

We value outstanding service for our customers.

Our team consists of professionals and industry experts. Our employees regularly attend further training courses so that we are always up to date. We advise prospective buyers intensively and individually. With our large stock of both finished and spare parts, and rapid ordering process, we ensure short delivery times. 

Even after the purchase decision, we support FST customers with services, training and spare parts. Our experts support customers worldwide in the commissioning, maintenance and servicing of our products.

We practise an open information policy: we provide comprehensive information about our products, services and general compressed air know-how, with high-quality documents and on the internet.


Energy efficiency, reliability, and durability

We develop well thought-out products – down to the smallest detail.

There are countless details that we pay attention to during product development: all FST products are designed according to economic efficiency, reliability and durability. All core products are developed and manufactured in-house with the kind of attention to detail you notice.

The result: proven economical, reliable and maintenance-friendly solutions. With our broad standard portfolio, we already cover all compressed air purity classes according to ISO 8573-1. We treat condensate completely, from discharge to treatment. Economical and safe


Customised solutions for optimal results

We find customised solutions for individual plants in special plant construction.

Do you need higher performance ranges, special materials or approvals? With decades of experience, our specialists take on this challenge. Even beyond our standard programme, we will find an individual solution.

FST customers trust our know-how as a manufacturer and branch expert. Thanks to the cooperation with W&Z Rohrsystem-Technik as a strategic partner, there are hardly any technical limits to in-house production - we are only constrained by the rules of physics.


Short delivery times, high availability

We have a large stock and source locally – against the trend of times.

The shortest possible delivery times are one of our top priorities - even if this requires unconventional and extraordinary actions. For example, we have brought many manufacturing processes back to the region. This way we are not dependent on international markets. In-house production enables us to respond to individual customer requests in compressed air preparation, even at short notice. 

If you want to deliver quickly, you have to be able to deliver. Contrary to the general trend, FST therefore invests in an above-average warehouse full of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products. This enables us to provide our products as quickly as possible.


Long-term, reliable support

We maintain long-term partnerships with distributors and customers.

Our business partners and customers on site should be able to work successfully with our services and products. In our experience, satisfied customers are loyal customers. They come back – without any contractual obligation. 

As an independent company without corporate political obligations, FST is in a position to decide and act without exception in the interests of our customers, partners and the market. Not only today, but also in the future.


Supply reliability: today, tomorrow, and in 10 years' time

We work in established partnerships with certified suppliers nearby.

Every company is integrated into an economic and ecological network. In the long run, only those who can serve all interfaces to the satisfaction of all parties involved will be successful. With this in mind, we at FST GmbH rely on long-term partnerships: In addition to our strategic partner W&Z Rohrsystem-Technik, we work with numerous long-standing suppliers.

Regional suppliers mean short delivery routes. This rapid provision of components helps to ensure that all FST products, accessories, spare parts and services for compressed air preparation can be provided quickly.


Continuously high quality

We manufacture and all FST products according to the strictest standards.

Quality must never be just a promise. We practise quality at FST. In our production, each assembly cell has its own specially adapted quality control. Here we test the finished product according to defined criteria. Our compressed air dryers even have to pass a test run before we deliver them.

Only when all qualitative requirements have been met, do we release the products for shipment to our customers.

Our company = our employees

Compressed air applications are a highly specific niche product that requires special skills and know-how. At FST, people work with passion on innovative products that make compressed air technology better: Experts in technology, sales, administration, purchasing, IT or marketing. Together we are creating the future of compressed air treatment.


Our certifications

Our products not only comply with all conceivable certifications - we even help write the rules: Our experts are part of important development committees and standards committees such as ISO and PNEUROP. This way, we know exactly what is associated with which quality requirements.

We are also a member of the VDMA compressed air technology specialist group and represent the specialist interests of the KDV in this area (compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology).

Furthermore, we continuously invest in the certification of our company and products. In addition to general certificates, we hold almost all pressure vessel certifications required worldwide.
