Custom Odorization Class

Odorization Class Overview

A Custom Class is instruction tailored to meet the client’s individual needs. Does the following describe your needs? (If so, the Custom Class is for you):

  • We have multiple employees who need training.
  • We prefer a company-only private course.
  • We have looked at the standard class content (Standard 750 and Standard 10000) and want modifications to better reflect our company’s needs.
  • We need instruction on multiple GPL models.
  • We need training on the GPL 5000.

The Custom 750/10000 Class (Training for GPL Odorization Systems) is a comprehensive course with classroom and hands-on instruction focused on the safe operation and maintenance of a GPL 10000 and/or a GPL 750 Odorization System. Upon successfully completing the class, the student will receive certification that the employee has completed the course requirements.

The instructors will teach the annual maintenance procedures, including changing filters and replacing solenoids. They will also teach how to blow the unit down to service the pump and change seal cartridges and bellows. The class will also go over the ins and outs of the HMI controller, check pump performance, and repriming the pump. (Items covered will depend on the odorization system).

Class Dates

Class dates are determined between the client and Linc Energy Systems.

Custom Class
