Gulf Coast ConferenceOCT 20-21, 2015 | NRG Park (Formerly Reliant) One Reliant Park | Houston, Texas, 77054

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!

If you are an exhibitor, to submit your product to showcase, please visit New Product Sign Up page.

Listed below are the participating exhibitors.

DMA 4200 M
DMA 4200 M

Category: A - Best New Analytical Instrument

Anton Paar USA
Contact: Lillianne Hall
Phone: 800-722-7556

The DMA 4200 M density meter measures all of your petroleum samples, including crude oil, intermediate products, asphalt, bitumen, liquefied petroleum gas and high-viscosity liquids. Using DMA 4200 M means that tedious, manual and time-intensive measurement with pycnometers or hydrometers is a thing of the past. Only 2 mL of sample is needed and even viscous samples are filled easily. Measurement in a temperature range from -10 °C up to 200 °C even allows density checks on samples which are solid at room temperature. DMA 4200 M automatically calculates the density values for the required reporting temperature using the built-in API tables, without the need for manual temperature compensation. After measurement, the DMA 4200 M sample cell is quickly cleaned with only a small amount of solvent.

FASTRATE Titration

Category: C - Best Time Saving Product/Method/Program

FACET Analytical Services & Technology LLC. FASTRATE Titration
Contact: Meghan Fry
Phone: 317-790-6234

FACET® Analytical has developed a calibration standard in solid dosage form for use in volumetric Karl Fischer titrations, FASTRATE™. This novel standard by its form and composition reduces variability introduced by analyst technique and increases throughput. FASTRATE™ tablets can be formulated to customer specifications for water content and packaged in diverse presentations. Unit dose packaging preserves sample integrity and eliminates cumbersome use of a syringe or weigh boat during dispense. Instrument calibration is simplified and more repeatable because transfer time and exposure of vessel contents to foreign moisture are reduced. FASTRATE™ can be used as a check standard throughout a run and facilitates complete automation of the measurement since the delivery mechanism is the same for both standard and sample.

Metrohm’s Thermometric

Category: C - Best Time Saving Product/Method/Program

Metrohm adi7010 Metrohm USA
Contact: Lori Carey
Phone: 813-316-4770

Monitoring acidity in petroleum refining remains a critical focus for corrosion control and commerce. Getting that data in a timely manner is important and difficult samples often create lengthy titration times as well as require extensive electrode care. Metrohm’s Thermometric TAN Analyzer performs this entire titration in less than 3 minutes. Using concepts of enthalpy change and reaction rate, the Metrohm Thermoprobe detects clearly defined TAN titration endpoints four times faster than potentiometric titration. The Metrohm Thermometric TAN Analyzer requires less solvent, a smaller sample size and integrates a maintenance free sensor in a complete system you can confidently run unattended.

Activated Research Company Polyarc
Contact: Kim Herzog
Phone: 612-810-4363

Polyarc is a catalytic reactor that eliminates calibrations of the flame ionization detector (FID) within your gas chromatograph (GC). The microreactor design integrates with and enhances existing GC/FIDs by converting all carbon-containing species to methane through a series of catalytic reactions prior to being detected by the FID. It enables the quantification of all carbon-containing chemicals with enhanced sensitivity while maintaining GC separation performance and peak shape. Additional benefits include quantification of unknown compounds/overlapping peaks, detection of compounds with very low or no FID response (i.e. CO, formaldehyde, etc), detection of compounds with no existing commercial standard, and many more. Seamless integration of a Polyarc reactor will make your GC better, faster, and cheaper to operate.

Spectrum 10

Category: D - Best Software Advancement

PerkinElmer Spectrum 10
Contact: Rachel Nobles
Phone: 678-478-3075

Spectrum™ 10 software is designed for the latest range of PerkinElmer FT-IR spectrometers. This comprehensive package sets the standard in FT-IR software for simplicity and efficiency in data collection, processing and generating results. The software's interface combines single-click access to common functions with powerful data and results management. Its 'layered simplicity' is a breakthrough in spectroscopy software. Unlike other packages which often trade-off ease-of-use for advanced capability, Spectrum 10™ provides both - making it the ideal software for novices and advanced spectroscopists alike.
