Separators and Filters

The 2 GENIE 123 and GENIE 133 separators are the largest in the A+ Corporation liquid/gas separator range. Although they can handle identical flow rates and temperatures, their design and use are different.


The difference between a 123 separator and a 133 separator

The GENIE 133 separator has a larger internal cavity than the GENIE 123 separator, and can withstand higher pressures.

The GENIE 133 separator is ideal for continuous sampling of a gaseous source where large quantities of liquids are present, e.g. for the collection and processing of natural gas, for CEMS and certain refinery and petrochemical gases.

It can be mounted on a sampling probe (GENIE GPHV or 760) when the probe, fitted with a membrane at its end, is invaded by liquids. It can also be mounted before an analyzer or pump to protect them.

Finally, it is recommended for sample pre-conditioning in applications where there is no bypass and liquids must be discharged from the separator by gravity.

Miscellaneous information

The composition of the membranes is patented and cannot be disclosed. However, we can confirm that Genie® membranes do not alter the composition of the gas sampled.

Tests have been carried out by A+ Corporation to determine whether the membrane with which Genie® separators are equipped alters the composition of the gas sample;

After several series of tests, chromatographic analysis showed that the composition of the sample was virtually identical, whether it passed through a Genie® membrane or not. The gas sample is therefore unaltered as it passes through the Genie® membrane.

Which tube for my application?

O'BRIEN traced tubing offers a wide choice of options to provide you with the solution best suited to your application: insulated, heat-insulated, with electric or steam tracer, single or double process tube, welded or seamless, in 316SS steel, PFA or copper, with specific treatment such as Silconert...

To determine which tube is right for you, you need to fill in a few details:

  • What are the temperature conditions on site?
  • What temperature conditions do you want on your line?
  • What tube length is required?
  • What type of tracing: steam or electric?
  • How many process tubes do you need? What diameter? Welded or seamless? What material? What diameter and thickness?

The application sheet below summarizes all the necessary information. You can fill it in and send it back to us, so that we can advise you on the right choice of tracing tube.
