Company Profile

Life Prediction Technologies Inc. (LPTi) is a knowledge-based company specializing in formulating prognostics and health management (PHM) based life cycle management strategies for gas and steam turbine systems, sub-systems and their components. LPTi provides life extension and design review services to turbine users, overhal vendors, third partty parts manufacturers and OEMs LPTi uses physics based approach to prognostics (predictive maintenance) including microstructure based damage models for the residual life prediction turbine components and devising inspection based life cycle management strategies for components in rotating equipment in the power plant units where equipment parts may not be visually accessible for routine inspection or may have exceeded their design life limits or may be cracking prematurely due to a variety of reasons during service.

Products/Services

  • XactLIFE LPTi has developed and successfully completed projects with the world’s first real time prognostics system called XactLIFE for gas and steam turbine applications. The patented XactLIFE prognostics system ( CAN Patent No. 2,604,118 and US Patent No.8,116,992) is an expert system that uses physics based modeling approach and accurately predicts the fracture critical locations, crack nucleation and propagation life, and the occurrence of distortion or structural faults in a component long before they actually develop during service. Unlike diagnostics, this XactLIFE prognostics system allows the turbine users to take corrective action cost effectively before a structural failure occurs during service, quantify risks and to explore the possibility of implementing life extension schemes such as inspection based life extension of all Class A components and rejuvenation, recoating or repair technologies for durability critical parts. LPTi prognostics solution is 30 times more accurate than existing empirical modeling based solutions. In addition, parts reliability can be established up-front using physics based probabilistic analysis without requiring the accumulation of substantial amounts of parts fialuire data to conduct traditional FMECA based reliability analysis. The system provides a choice of damage models, for steam as well as gas turbine applications such as creep, Low Cycle Fatigue (LCF), stress corrosion, corrosion fatigue and Thermal Mechanical Fatigue (TMF) analysis and creep crack growth rate (CCGR), Fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) or combined loading based safe inspection interval analysis. Inaddition, damage modfels are also available for predicting the life of coated parts. Coating life prediction models are built in system for aluminide, MCrAlY and thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems.
