Concepts NREC maintains a robust in-house research and development program. We hold over 70 patents worldwide, with numerous patents pending. We push past what has been done to explore what can be done.

Concepts NREC is ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100:2016 certified and committed to providing our customers with products and services that meet international quality standards. Concepts NREC is also the leader of the global Advanced Centrifugal Pump and Compressor Consortium for Diffuser and Volute Design, an internationally sponsored research venture dedicated to advancing diffuser and volute design. 

At Concepts NREC, we have the vision to create great designs, and a hard-earned reputation for delivering them.

Applied Research Program

Concepts NREC regularly conducts industry-sponsored consortia and internally funded projects that continue to expand our extensive knowledge and applied technology expertise.

Sponsors of Concepts NREC international consortia programs include equipment users, equipment manufacturers, government agencies, and independent research organizations. These collaborative, applied investigations generate important technical information and data on turbomachinery performance and reliability. Results are distributed exclusively to sponsors so they can improve product designs and resolve operational problems.

For over twenty years, consortium sponsors have received benefits that:

Capabilities

Concepts NREC’s manufacturing capabilities extend far beyond simply cutting metal. Our highly skilled machinists are backed by experienced design engineers with diverse technical backgrounds and software engineers who have produced industry-leading CAE and CAM programs. This broad expertise enables us to suggest more efficient manufacturing methods, materials, processes, and designs that meet customer needs while lowering their production costs.

Leveraged their R&D funds

Consortium programs are extremely cost-effective because sponsors receive advanced design and development technology while paying only a fraction of the cost of the entire project.

Directed the research to best suit their needs

Sponsors have the opportunity to participate in choosing the direction of the applied research by suggesting tasks and setting priorities among alternative approaches.

Kept up with advancing technology

Whether monitoring progress of the outside world or progress within a given organization, sponsors find the consortium programs very useful in keeping current with advancing technology.

Obtained valuable patent rights

Valuable technologies developed under consortium programs may be patented. Patent rights are granted to current participants of the project on a worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive license basis. Organizations joining later must pay a supplementary license fee to cover patent rights.

Trust the Experts in Turbomachinery

For over 60 years, we have helped leading global OEMs to improve the performance and manufacturability of their turbomachines.

This is a video of Concepts NREC's optional 3+2 Roughing Module that enables roughing out of impellers using 3-axis algorithms, keeping a constant tool vector. This strategy optimizes the toolpath to provide constant cutting load, making it suitable for high speed machining. This is extremely helpful for large (>0.5 m) diameter impellers and/or hard materials where roughing using the 5-axis strategies is less efficient.

Entropy Happens… Deal with It!
by Francis A. Di Bella, P.E.
If there’s one thing good about sitting in snarled traffic in Boston, it’s that you get to see some very original bumper stickers. The most recent bumper sticker I saw was probably the strangest one, no doubt created by some engineering professor who doesn’t see that the glass is half full, but that it has a safety factor of 2! Nevertheless, the bumper sticker stated the obvious when one thinks about it: ENTROPY HAPPENS! And then, to emphasize the point, the artist has the letters slowly “evaporating,” demonstrating graphically that entropy proceeds from order to chaos.

Increases in Temperature Envelopes and Its Implications on Material Selection
by Arsalan Adil
Temperature envelopes in the turbomachinery industry are constantly increasing as the state of the art evolves in pursuit of better performance. This means engineers need to design compressors with higher and higher exit temperatures, and turbines and nozzles with continuously increasing inlet temperatures. This rise in temperature greatly impacts the selection criteria for materials used.

Reverse Engineering - Going from Part to Art
by Sharon Wight
Have you ever needed to know the exact geometry of a compressor that has been running for years in your process plant? Perhaps you need to analyze how it would perform if the process fluid had to be changed to meet new government regulations. Or maybe there has been damage to the impeller and a complete mechanical analysis is required before a new one can be put into service. Eventually, everything, even well-designed turbomachinery, needs to be replaced or upgraded.
