More than 20 years, Austral Chemicals introduced in Chile a new generation of gas odorants based on mercaptans, Vigileak ® and Spotleak ®. In 2013 Austral launched O-Scent, a biodegradable odor neutralizer for gas odorants.
To keep the gas industry aware of latest technologies and share experiences and best practices, more than 40 Chilean experts participated on November 16th at the 2016 gas seminar organized by Austral Chemicals and Vetek at the NH Hotel in Santiago.
The seminar was focussed on new solutions and safety. Mrs. Hilda Cabello, SEC technical department manager presented the SEC mission as well as gas industry future challenges. During her presentation she focussed on the risk management of gas spills in factories. Mr. Luciano Pessagno, CEO of Vetek, presented South American gas odorant regulations and important aspects regarding gas odorant regional logistics. Austral Chemicals also talked about the new norm NCh 2245, introducing the new MSDS format.
Austral Chemicals took the opportunity during the seminar to launch the "Quick Intervention Unit", a low-pressure spraying device for O-Scent to treat airborne odors, liquid spills, contaminated tools, odorizer parts and clothing.
