Codetect® gas odorant description and benefits

For facilities using both industrial and natural gas, it is important to distinguish the two in case of a leak. Therefore, in the case of Steel industry, Arkema developed odorant Codetect®, a special formulation to enable CO containing gases in case of leaks on those specific networks.

CO containing gases are transported and distributed in short, low pressure pipelines, though in an aggressive environment (dust, iron oxide particles). Codetect® gas odorant combines high odor intensity and good stability in this purpose: it allows better detection for toxic CO containing gas leaks not being covered by portable or fixed detectors (neighbors to steel manufacturing plants).

This odorization also makes it possible to carry out maintenance operations as soon as possible with controlled capex, while limiting the costs related to gas losses. 

Arkema can propose other adapted technologies for industrial gases such as oxygen, CO2, hydrogen, and nitrogen.
