Frost & Sullivan Recognizes Fisher-Klosterman, Inc. for Product Quality Leadership in the U.S. Industrial Air Filtration Market


Palo Alto, Calif. — August 1, 2006 — Frost & Sullivan has selected Fisher-Klosterman, Inc. for the 2006 Award for Product Quality Leadership in the U.S. industrial air filtration market. This is in recognition of its ability to provide superior quality filtration products and efficiency levels for specific customer needs.

Fisher-Klosterman design and manufactures cyclones, scrubbers, and baghouses, including the popular Buell Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) cyclones. As a niche manufacturer of high efficiency industrial cyclones, Fisher-Klosterman has successfully differentiated itself from the competition by providing higher performance and levels of efficiency. These cyclones are frequently used for product recovery applications.

Relentless competition in the U.S. industrial air filters market has made it imperative that companies introduce innovative high performance products in order to reduce the risk of losing potential customers as well as repeat business to other competitors.

Fisher-Klosterman derives a major proportion of its business from custom-designed projects that require the company’s tailor-made specialty filters to suit the requirements of the customer. Hence, to preserve its reputation in niche market applications and satisfy customer expectations, the company continues to manufacture and deliver quality products and services with rigid adherence to various quality control programs.

“Fisher-Klosterman has created some appreciable developments in air filtration that have been instrumental in the company’s success in the market,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Shriram Subramanian. “A notable accomplishment is the company’s line of six cyclone models, commonly referred to as the XQ Series, that each offer different levels of efficiency at any required pressure drop.”

The XQ Series cyclones can be designed to suit the specific needs of customers, be it to only remove large particulates from air or eliminate finer particles as well. Custom designed features include among others, carbon, steel or alloy constructions and interior linings for abrasion resistance including vulcanized rubber, refractory and ceramics. High temperature and pressure designs are also available.

As a true reflection of its commitment to quality, Fisher-Klosterman gained the right to display the coveted “U” symbol on its products since 1976. Awarded by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), this symbol is a mark of quality certification and requires products to meet rigorous standards and tests.

“In this mature market space for industrial air filters, the superior quality products offered by Fisher-Klosterman for specialty applications are unmatched in their ability to directly influence customer business.” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Subramanian. “The ASME mark of quality is an excellent indication of the unmatched quality of the company’s products and serves to further strengthen the high degree of confidence customers have in Fisher-Klosterman, Inc. products.”

Each year Frost & Sullivan presents this Award to a company that has demonstrated superior quality control over its existing competitors in product manufacturing. Quality control is an essential element in satisfying customers, increasing repeat buying behavior, and assuring long-term market survival.

Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.
