GPL Odorizers Now Offers Fiberglass Buildings for Odorization Units
GPL Odorizers, the manufacturer of environmentally responsible odorization systems now offers its clients the option of including a Shelter Works custom-built fiberglass building in their odorization design. This design option augments the odorant injection system's protection from the weather, as well as improves aesthetics and deters vandalism.
Odorization System Design
An odorization system consists of the equipment necessary to inject odorant, a compound that makes a gas smell, into a gas stream. Many gases, such as natural gas and propane, are odorless and combustible, and regulations require the gas be odorized at specific levels to ensure that a person with a typical sense of smell can detect the gas.
An odorization system may typically include an odorizer, which is the odorant injection system, an odorant tank to store the odorant and a containment system. The containment system is commonly known as a skid and keeps the odorant off the ground in the event the tank ever leaks. The odorizer typically includes solenoids, a controller, pressure regulator, and other devices to control the flow of gas and precise injection of odorant.
Fiberglass Building Option
GPL Odorizers now offers its clients the alternative of including a custom fiberglass enclosure to supplement the odorization system's protection against adverse weather or other environmental impacts. The Shelter Works fiberglass buildings also discourage vandalism and improve the aesthetics commonly associated with having such a system.
Shelter Works uses a distinctive FiberBeam™ so that the roof and walls do not buckle in heavy snow, thus giving the odorization system additional protection. Having a building designed to the project specifications gives the customer the chance to specify what they want such as doors, windows, roof hatches, access panels, cut-outs, or bulkheads necessary to accommodate the system.
