When someone suffers from anosmia, he or she is unable to smell the odorant used to odorize natural gas. A hyposmia sufferer may also be unable to detect the gas. With both medical conditions, a dangerous situation would present itself if there was ever a natural gas leak.
Anosmia or Hyposmia Smell Disorders
Unfortunately, not everyone has an ordinary sense of smell. While some people may have a diminished sense (hyposmia), others are unable to smell at all (anosmia). Some studies have suggested on average 1-2 % of North Americans have impaired smell. Causes of reduced olfactory perception range from aging, allergies, viral infections attacking the olfactory nerve, medications, hormones, diseases, and other conditions, though some people are born with no sense of smell (congenital anosmia).

GPL Odorizers has recently shared a look at one of their new portable odorant injection systems, which demonstrates the company’s ability to design and manufacture customized odorization systems to meet end-users’ needs.
Custom Odorization Solutions
GPL Odorizers understands that most odorization applications are unique and rather than turning out cookie-cutter odorant injection systems, they are positioned to design and produce custom solutions to satisfy the end-user’s needs. Among the custom solutions they provide are:
Linc Energy Systems, the master distributor for GPL Odorizers, posted on their blog the principle of operations for two GPL odorant injection systems, the 10000, and 750.
GPL Odorizers is the manufacturer of technologically advanced, cost-effective, and eco-friendly odorant injection systems for natural gas, propane, and biogas. The company positions itself as the provider of a planet-friendly alternative to traditional injection systems. The GPL systems do not use pipeline gas to drive the system. They are sealed, and ventless, having no odor and releasing no gas or odorant to the atmosphere during normal operations. Continue reading
GPL Odorizers, the manufacturer of premium odorization systems, announced the discontinuation of the GPL Z9000 odorant injection system. The company will provide support for the current odorizers in the field as well as sell parts for the unit until December 31, 2019, or while supplies last.
Z9000 Odorizer Discontinuance
Zeck Systems originally designed and manufactured the Z9000 odorizer. Sentry Equipment acquired Zeck Systems in 2010, and GPL Odorizers purchased the odorization line in 2015. The Z9000 was introduced in 2003 as a simple, low maintenance, and ventless odorant injection system. Continue reading
