Pickling or pre-odorization is a process used to prep new gas pipes before commissioning for use. In new gas lines, it is widespread to experience odor fade or have the natural gas odorant [...]
Pre-Odorization and Temporary Odorization
GPL Odorizers designs and manufactures portable and temporary odorization systems which permit pipelines to avoid disruption of service commonly incurred during construction. Temporary units also are employed during natural gas pipe pickling, pipeline conditioning, or pre-odorization.
GPL Odorizers systems are easy to transport by forklift or pallet jack and fit into the back of most pickup trucks. The unit includes everything necessary for odorizing, including the odorizer, odorant tank, containment, interconnecting valves and a holder for the customer-supplied nitrogen tank for blanket gas pressurization. No actuation gas is required for the odorizer’s operation, simply connect the electrical power, or use an optional battery pack or solar power package.

Other Odorant Injection System Upgrades
GPL Odorizers offers full packaged odorization skids with the odorizer, ASME odorant tank, and containment assemblies; in both vertical and horizontal tank configurations.
Through our GPL-authorized service provider, we offer our clients a one-stop acquisition experience, to ensure excellent service while minimizing oversight and scheduling challenges.
The GPL 750 Odorizer solved one of our most challenging odorization applications. It demonstrated accurate and repeatable odorant injection even in no flow, low flow, and intermittent flow conditions. The GPL 750 has proven to be boringly reliable.
