Gulf Coast ConferenceOCT 14-15, 2014 | Moody Gardens Convention Center | Galveston, Texas

New Product Showcase

The Gulf Coast Conference will sponsor a New Product Showcase to provide a forum for the introduction of new technology and innovation to our attendees. On Tuesday and Wednesday of the meeting from Noon - 1:30 PM there will be special table top displays with new products and technology for your examination. Several vendors will provide these products and personnel to describe them during these specific times in the convention center lunch area.

We are asking all Attendees to stop by and take a look at these products and complete an opinion survey about what you see. One survey will be drawn on Wednesday evening from the completed surveys and that person will receive a LIFETIME registration to the Gulf Coast Conference!

The GCC will appreciate your participation, and we know that the participating vendors will as well!

Recent updates to the CFR/EPA testing procedures now allow for reportable, complete automation of formerly labor intensive testing; specifically, automated on-line distillation and digestion for ammonia, cyanide and phenol. The Skalar analyzers perform the entire sample preparation along with the colorimetric testing. Ammonia goes through a distillation or gas diffusion then EPA method 350.1, phenol goes through on-line distillation then EPA 420.4., total Cyanide goes through automated digestion/distillation and colorimetery (Kelada-01). A through-put speed of 20 samples an hour. The Skalar SAN++ analyzer will be equipped with the methods for review and discussion.

The CANNON® CAV 4.2 is a fully automated, high throughput, dual-bath kinematic viscometer for ASTM D445. It combines CANNON®'s reputation for quality and reliability with design features that enhance lab productivity, reduce costs, and improve data quality. The CAV 4.2 is a completely self-contained bench-top unit with no external components and a 35% smaller footprint than other models. An on-board computer with user-friendly touch-screen allows the CAV 4.2 to operate without the need for an external PC, although up to 4 units can be connected to a single PC via the included powerful VISCPRO® software. Automated, built-in washing and drying allows reuse of sample vials and eliminates the need for manual washing, reducing laboratory consumable cost and saving time. In addition, the CAV 4.2 viscometer tube design cuts solvent usage and disposal costs by more than half and allows an operator to change out a tube in just minutes, saving hours of service expense. Dual independent modular baths and fully accessible sample handlers provide reliable unattended processing of up to 24 tests per hour. Meanwhile, the CAV 4.2's colored status indicator bath lights provide a simple remote indication of operational status. The instrument covers a viscosity range of 0.5 mm2/s to 10,000 mm2/s in 100 fold increments over a temperature range of 20 °C to 150 °C (with available bath options).

The CANNON® Thermoelectric Sample Conditioner (TESC) is the only conditioning option that provides completely controlled sample pre-heating and cooling from -40 °C to +90 °C for ASTM D2983. Its easy-lift feature connects the instrument with a Brookfield® DV2T viscometer to provide a complete conditioning and testing system. The TESC system's integrated temperature control allows for unattended operation and keeps the sample stationary in the test chamber throughout the pre-heating, cooling and testing phases. This avoids the imprecision resulting from sample transport and disruption between steps that is often associated with other testing options. Low cost and an ultra-compact design allow several complete TESC systems to be purchased and conveniently operated in the same bench-top area as a single competitor unit. This provides optimal test versatility and the security of operational redundancy. The TESC's solid-state thermoelectric cooling eliminates hazards associated with flammable bath fluids such as methanol. Pre-developed ASTM D2983 test programs for common lubricants (gear oil and ATF) save valuable set up time. Digitally recorded thermal test history data and final viscosity measurements can be printed or exported.

The simple truth is that variable geometry columns (VGCs) allow you to obtain better resolution and detection limits in significantly less time than traditional open tubular columns. The performance advantages of variable geometry columns are made possible by differential acceleration. Conventional columns function by creating physical separation (via differential migration) at a rate that is faster than band broadening. The ratio of physical separation to peak width, of course, gives the chromatographic resolution. It is well known that because of near-constant-velocity differential migration (conventional columns), chromatographic resolution only develops with the square root of time and square root of column length. In other words, when you double your length of column, you only get 41% better chromatographic resolution (✓2=1.414). Because our VGCs are based on the same fused silica tubing dimensions that industry has been using for several decades, your current methods will work with our columns without any changes. No modifications to your GC system are necessary! Simply replace your existing capillary columns with a VGC, and you are ready to go.

H2S in Liquids for Laboratory The ability to analytically quantify H2S in liquids such as crude oil, fuel oil, naphtha, water, diesel and gasoline are enhanced with the Sample Transfer StripperTM (STS), exclusive ASI Membrane Technologies and ratiometric colorimetric technology offered by Analytical Systems International. Analysis is a quick procedure requiring only one push button for analysis. The user first connects the prepared Sample Container to the analyzer. Next, the user presses START on the analyzer's keypad. The rest of the analysis is automatic: The sample is quickly heated and agitated by purging the sample with air. The purging strips the H2S gas from the liquid sample based in part on Henry's law. Next, the stripped H2S gas is swept to the STS unit which permeates through the exclusive ASI Membrane Technology. A carrier air on the other side of the membrane then sweeps the H2S gas sample to the H2S specific detector (no cross-interferences) for quantitative analysis in ppb, ppm, and up to saturation levels. The STS acts as an ultra-effective filter, blocking any mists or liquid carry-overs. This radically reduces any maintenance requirements. The detection technology used in the 205L is based on chemically specific density changes. The advanced Tape detector utilized in our analyzers is the only detection method proven to be specific only to H2S, proven by thousands of worldwide applications. The analysis time is quick (typically less than 10-15 minutes) without compromising precision. Tape rolls will last several months with continuous operation. The detector principle of operation is described in various ASTM methods include D4084-82, D4468-85, and D4045-81.
