Just Released – GPL 750 Gas Odorizer

The GPL 750 Odorization System provides odorant injection for natural gas, biogas, and propane and is now available. The 750 Odorizer is an innovative and eco-friendly approach to accurate, optimal and consistent gas odorization for low-flow, no-flow and intermittent volume applications.

What Makes the GPL 750 Different

The GPL 750 uses patented drip technology to inject a fixed measure of odorant into the gas stream ensuring accurate and repeatable odorization in the most challenging conditions. Even in low flow and intermittent flow circumstances, the 750 odorizer provides odorization proportionate to gas volume. The 750 even functions well in no-flow situations.  It is simple in design, eco-friendly and SMART (offering remote data and control capabilities). Continue reading

Natural Gas Odorization Equipment – Odorant Injection Type

In an earlier post, we discuss how there are two categories for natural gas odorizers, vaporization or odorant injection style. In Wick-Type Odorizer and Bypass Odorizers | Vaporization Type, we share that vaporization style odorizers have limited applications, specifically low-flow, and constant flow where there is little variation in gas flow.  Here we discuss the injection style odorizers.

Today, chemical injection systems are used for transmission pipelines, most large cities, many medium size loads and even some small loads in particular applications. The injection may be performed using either a pump or a drip method that injects a known volume of odorant into the gas pipeline. By adding small amounts of liquid odorant into moving gas, the gas becomes odorized. In this style of odorizer, a computer controller monitors the flow which in turn will vary the injection rate.

There are three odorant injection technologies worthy of mention: Continue reading
