A+ Corporation is a privately-held, family-owned company located in Gonzales, Louisiana just outside of Baton Rouge. A+ pioneered the use of membranes for removing liquids to protect analyzers in both gas and liquid streams with their Genie Membrane Separators.
Additionally, the company pioneered the use of membranes on sample probes, eliminating liquids at pipeline conditions to ensure a representative sample as well as preventing liquids from contaminating the sample system. With over 45 patents and counting, A+ continues to create new and exciting technologies that will continue to define and redefine the way fluids are sampled.
Better solutions come from a better understanding of the problems customers face. By understanding and identifying these core issues, we ensure the solutions we provide are solving the root problem and not simply fixing symptoms of the core problem. Also, if we can fix your sampling issue without selling anything, we’re glad to do it.
Starting in the fall of 1988, in a spare room in his house, Don Mayeaux began creating product concepts that would forever change the way natural gas is sampled. Building on a concept discovered while designing an improved electrochemical moisture analyzer.
Don invented a simple, phase-separating filter that he named “Genie.” The Genie® brand has gone on to become a master brand, the name by which most other membrane separators in the market are also referred to today.
Filter Tornado 602 Self Cleaning Series
The Filter Tornado 602 Self Cleaning Series is a continuously self-cleaning filter that protects analyzers from particulate in liquid samples. In normal operation, components of interest flow through the Tornado’s element to the analyzer. Contaminants are shed by the element and removed through the Bypass port.
The G.U.T.S.™ (Genie® Ultimate Thermoplastic Seal) gasket is an excellent alternative to expensive elastomers. It withstands radical temperature cycles without leaks due to its ability to maintain a bubble-tight seal even when the thermocycler repeatedly from 0-300ºF.
The Filter Tornado 602 Self Cleaning Series multi-layer filter media consists of the support screen and the flow screen. This results in more efficiency and easier installation and handling. The elements are self-cleaned by the tornadic flow of samples across them.
