The Smell of Safety

Did you know natural gas is naturally colorless and odorless? The distinctive rotten egg smell associated with natural gas is actually the result of odorization, which became federally mandated after the tragic 1937 New London school explosion. Proper odorization is required so the public can detect and report gas leaks well before the natural gas reaches dangerous levels. To ensure natural gas is readily detectable by a person with a normal sense of smell, odorization systems have been developed to continuously and consistently impart that characteristic odor.

How natural gas is odorized is dependent on many factors, such as the application, location, and flow rate of the gas. Welker OdorEyes has a diverse catalog of solutions and accessories to cover this broad spectrum: injection systemspumpless vapor injection systemsdiffusing probesexhaust filtersodorant flaresspill kits, and more.
