SoftInWay Hosts a Free Webinar on Upgrading Industrial Steam Turbines: Market Analysis, Rationale, Advantages and Challenges

Burlington, MA – November 9, 2011 SoftInWay Inc. is inviting engineers to participate in a free one-hour webinar “How and Why to Upgrade Industrial Steam Turbines: Market Analysis, Rationale, Advantages and Challenges” that will take place on Thursday, December 1st at 10 am and 4 pm EST.

This webinar will cover the industrial turbomachinery market analysis as well as reasons for performing industrial turbomachinery upgrades including efficiency improvement, reliability, plant or process changes and reapplication or change of use of the machinery.

Some key challenges will be also discussed including having limited or inaccurate data, re-design complexities and re-manufacturing costs. Problem solving techniques will then be shared with experiential examples given covering aero and structural problems, manufacturability, etc.

It will be interesting for anyone who wants to know the main advantages of performing upgrades instead of purchasing new equipment or just performing regular maintenance, including ROI considerations, operational efficiency and overhaul time.

“In unstable economic times, it is crucial to focus on optimization of budgets, time and resources. During this webinar, we will share our experiences, reasons and strategies for analyzing and updating Industrial Turbines to improve operations and efficiency.” said Dr. Boris Frolov, Director of Engineering of SoftInWay Inc.

SoftInWay Presents Breakthrough Research at International Gas Turbine Congress 2011 Osaka (IGTC’11)

Burlington, MA – October 6, 2011: SoftInWay Inc. will participate in the International Gas Turbine Congress 2011 Osaka (IGTC’11) which will be held from the 13th to the 18th of November, 2011 in Osaka, Japan with the support of collaborating Turbomachinery organizations, Corporations and Educators from around the world.

This Congress is known for gathering people together from industry, government and academia from all over the world to share the latest research and innovations in the field of gas turbines, turbochargers, steam turbines and centrifugal compressors with the goal of improving turbomachinery efficiency, performance, reliability and designs.

“We are glad to be in Japan and to participate in the International Gas Turbine Congress. It’s a great opportunity for us to see our Asia – based colleagues and to share our new ideas, designs and technological breakthroughs with them. We hope that this conference will enable information sharing and give birth to many new partnerships and innovations.” said Ronnie Lindgren, Director of International Business Development.

On November 14 (Monday) between 14:30 and 16:00 in Room 1202, Dr. Leonid Moroz, founder and CEO of SoftInWay Inc., will present a research paper named “Integrated Environment for Gas Turbine Design” which discusses the capabilities and advantages of using an integrated environment for preliminary design of axial and radial turbines and as well as axial, centrifugal and mixed flow compressors. The proposed system configuration, significantly shortens the design cycle time from initial machine concept to a finalized design with all off-design performance details calculated. This approach was used by SoftInWay, in the development of “X-Engine” for Kutrieb Research. It proved to be a great proof of concept for applying the new system configurations to aerodynamic development and optimization of turbomachinery.

SoftInWay Inc, will be doing a stage presentation and also a number of live demonstrations at their Exposition booth (#007) including their latest AxSTREAM functionality updates such as AxSLICE Module’s radial machine capabilities. Read more about AxSLICE: softinway.com/AxSLICE.
