SET 12: Panel training on odour intensity with 2-methylnaphthalene
For odour evaluation, it is best to have a homogenous and representative panel. Therefore, Olfasense has developed an odour intensity test using sniffing sticks.
It can be used for panel training to identify different odour intensity levels of 2-methylnaphthelene, which has a typical musty, mothball-like odour. Areas of application can be found in the chemical or building material industries among others.
It contains 6 sniffing sticks with different odour intensity levels and one solvent reference stick.
With this sniffing sticks set, you have different options for performance tests to check the ability of your panellists to judge the correct intensity levels for unknown concentrations of 2-methylnaphthalene.
This set of sniffing sticks consists of
- 7 sniffing sticks (6 different intensities and 1 reference stick containing the used solvent)
- 1 eye mask to blindfold the panellist during the test
- test instructions
The stability of the sticks is 6 months. Very regular use of the sticks might reduce the time of usability.
