Filtration & Separation Technologies

Your single source for Filtration & Separation Products.


Oil and Coolant Filtration

Properly designed filtration systems are one of the simplest methods to protect your equipment, cutters, grinding wheels, cylinders and to extend the life of your coolants, quench oils and hydraulic oils.

FST looks at each application and recommends the system that best suits your application from large central systems to individual machine kidney loop filtration.


Magnetic Separators
Losma's self-cleaning magnetic separators are an easy and inexpensive method of removing particles to 10 micron from coolants and oils.

Gravity Paper Bed Filters
Losma's indexing paper bed filters and paper bed filters with a magnetic pre-filter are used extensively in metal working.  Their biggest benefit is the ability to change paper type to match changes in oil or coolant, materials processed or filtration levels required.

Disk and Belt Skimmers

FST stocks a complete range of disk and belt skimmers to remove floating oils from water sources, coolant sumps, parts washers and more...




Pressure Filters
Oberlin pressure filters are used extensively in the automotive and metal finishing industries to produce a thick and very dry filter cake.  They can generate a filter cake of 75% - 95% solids by weight and can handle very high flow rates per square foot of surface area.

Additional Products for Coolant Management

  • UV lights for bacteria control
  • hydrocyclones
  • reverse osmosis water systems for product make-up
  • filter paper for gravity beds, vacuum, pressure filters
  • filter bags and vessels
  • pleated and wrapped cartridges for gun drills

Ozone Generators
The Coolant Manager CD505 is a bacteria and odor control system for use in all water based systems, including soluble oils, semi-synthetics, synthetics, alkaline cleaners and water. The mechanism is very straight forward. The ozone is generated by passing plant air through miniaturized corona discharge module where plant air is changed into ozone. The ozone is fed into the coolant sump through a plastic tube and an ozone dispersion element which is placed at the bottom of the tank.


Consumable Filters
FST stocks a complete range of spin-on and element filters for both high and low pressure coolant and oil filtration applications.  We can cross reference filter numbers from most major manufacturers and supply an equal or better quality filter at 25% to 35% savings or more.
