ProEnergy Presents at ASME Turbo Expo

SEDALIA, Mo. (June 27, 2016) – ProEnergy’s Director of Technology, Warren Miglietti, chaired a session on Coating Technology and presented a Scholarly Lecture at the ASME Turbo Expo Conference held in Seoul, South Korea, June 13 – 17, 2016.  This was Warren’s 26th consecutive ASME Turbo Expo conference where he was previously Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Manufacturing, Materials and Metallurgy Committee and has won three Best Paper Awards.

Warren’s presentation this year highlighted the importance of welding and brazing hot sections of industrial gas turbine components during repair work.  He also described the leadership ProEnergy has shown with this technology as it has evolved over the last decade.  Warren included multiple case studies on extending the limits of weld and braze repairs on W501F and 7FA.03 engine components, detailing the microstructure of the weld and braze repairs, with test results showing superior mechanical integrity and strength.

 “ProEnergy thoroughly understands and is fully equipped with state-of-the-art welding and brazing technologies and expert technicians to provide cost-effective and reliable repairs for our clients,” said Warren. “Combining the use of both technologies allows ProEnergy to deliver superior repaired components in a relatively quick timeframe.”

Warren has over 28 years of expertise in the welding, brazing and heat treatment of nickel and cobalt based superalloys as well as titanium, aluminum and stainless steels.  He has authored or co-authored over 50 published technical papers and has twelve US and four European patents granted, with three repair technology patents pending.  Warren received his M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Natal and Welding Engineering and his Ph.D. in Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
