Technologies continue to evolve to mitigate odor fade issues in newly constructed house piping carrying natural gas downstream of the meter. Buildings prone to this phenomenon are typically large newly constructed structures (multi-rise apartments buildings, shopping malls, stadiums, etc.) that contain gas piping with little load (usually cooking only). Additionally, older buildings are susceptible to leaks due to aging fuel gas piping and resultant breakdown of pipe sealants used on pipe threads over time. A break-through technology solution developed in the UK utilizes an internal epoxy barrier coating for the rehabilitation of metallic fuel gas piping in-situ, that also has the potential to eliminate odor fade.
