A+ Corporation Vaporizer Genie GV 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.
A+ Corporation Vaporizer Genie GV
Typical vaporizing pressure regulators do not provide the conditions required for proper liquid sample vaporization when a high volume or flow of the vaporized sample is required. This is due to their lack of flash vaporization capability and insufficient heat exchange capacity.
The Vaporizer Genie GV Series has five times more heat transfer capacity than current vaporizing regulators and is designed for instantaneous flash vaporization of liquid sample streams that require more heat transfer capacity than conventional vaporizing regulators can supply. For example, the Vaporizer Genie GV Series can provide up to 23 liters per minute of vaporized propane at 110 VAC.
The design of the Vaporizer Genie GV Series allows the liquid sample to be maintained below its bubble point pressure and temperature until it enters the flash chamber where it is instantaneously vaporized. Heat for vaporization is transferred from an electrical cartridge heater to a low-volume flash chamber having a very large heat transfer surface area.
The flash chamber is designed to maintain a homogenous vaporized sample. Heat is distributed evenly throughout the flash chamber, resulting in longer heater life and efficient vaporization without partial fractionation of the sample components. The net result is a uniform, homogenous vaporized sample that is representative of the liquid sample composition.
