Pressure Vessels Heat exchangers & Tanks - Filtration & Strainers/Pipework


GFSA specialises in the design and manufacture of customised, high integrity filters, strainers and flame arresters in carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex, titanium and many other exotic alloys. Established in the UK in 1997 we have become a leading supplier to the oil and gas, petrochemical, power generation, water and process industries world-wide.
In addition to GFSA's core range of filters, strainers and flame arresters, we also manufacture a variety of related process equipment, including hydro-cyclones, stripping columns, heater vessels, pig launchers and receivers, tanks and pipework manifolds. This equipment can be supplied either as single units or as fully assembled skid packages.
Our advantageous location in the heart of the West Midlands means we are close to the motorway network and other transport methods (shipping and rail) are within easy reach.
Products include:
• Skid Packages
• Quick Opening Closures
• Filters (Cartridge, Gas, Activated Carbon, Duplex, Seawater, Housings)
• Strainers/Coalescers (Temporary, Bath Tub, Y-type, Basket, Multi basket Simplex, duplex, Self-cleaning, backwashing and housings)
• Separators / Coalescers
• Flame Arresters
• Pressure Vessels and Tanks (Pressure Vessels, Tanks, Surge Vessels, Stripping Columns, Demister Vessels, Heat Exchanger Vessels, Hydro-Cyclone Vessels and Knock-Out Vessels
• Pig Traps
• Drain / Seal Pots
• Air Receiver

Approvals and accreditations include IS09001:2015, ISO 14001, ISO 18001, ASME, ASME U Stamp, ISO 3834, EN 1090, F4N, Achilles FPAL-UVDB-JQS, Module H1.
