Get to know a little more about Industrial Equipment
Global market trends require improvements in the design of industrial equipment, rotating machinery, and turbomachinery, with a focus on delivering performance, energy efficiency, safety, and durability, and with lower cost and time to market. Rotating machines must be more energy efficient to reduce carbon emissions. For thermal turbomachinery design engineers, emissions of NOx, SOx, unburned hydrocarbons, and soot must also be addressed.

Gas compression and handling
Lower costs, higher productivity
Reducing energy consumption is a pressing issue for suppliers of turbomachinery in automotive, chemical, oil and gas applications. Efficient compressors, turbines, pumps and fans reduce energy consumption and therefore lower operating costs. Low maintenance also translates into low operating costs, hence the importance of design with a focus on reliability.
High efficiency and wide operating range with simulation
Efficiency, operational flexibility and reliability are critical parameters for hydraulic machines of all types. Water turbines must offer very high efficiency and operate over a wide operating range. The requirements are similar for pumps, torque converters, and marine liquid propulsion systems, including propellers.
Reduce costs and fuel burn
Reducing fuel burn, for economic, operational and sustainable reasons, is a key requirement for most engines, auxiliary power units, and gas and steam turbines. The quest for low emissions, both carbon and non-carbon, corresponds to growing public environmental concerns and increasing government legislation.
Wind Turbines, Propellers and Rotors
Energy efficiency and aerodynamics in your designs
A critical aerodynamic characteristic in wind turbines, aircraft propellers and rotors is the change in the flow pattern due to blade deformation. Deformation levels must be kept within acceptable ranges to avoid collapse of the structure. Therefore, reliability and safety are also paramount in these applications, due to the inaccessibility of the wind turbines, and human safety considerations.
The challenge for engineers is to develop equipment that combines high aerodynamic efficiency with excellent durability, so the use of simulation is indispensable to develop products with high aerodynamic efficiency and robustness.
