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 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 specific times in the convention center lounge 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 attendee ballot will be drawn each afternoon and will receive a prize. Must be present to win! The GCC will appreciate your participation, and we know that the participating vendors will as well!

Listed below are the participating exhibitors.

Best New Analytical Instrument

Bruker Bruker EDXRF Spectrometer


Contact: Pecard, Daniel
Phone: 6083585110

The S2 POLAR is an elemental analyzer featuring the latest X-ray fluorescence (XRF) technology. New to the latest addition to Bruker's XRF portfolio is the polarized beam path, resulting in exceptionally low background and low detection limits for key refinery applications. These include ultra-low S levels in fuels, low Cl levels to minimize corrosion and catalyst failure, and monitoring of Ni and V in crude oils. All this is available with predefined methods and an easy-to-use touch screen.
