ElectraWatch Overview:

ElectraWatch, Inc. was founded in August of 2007 as a Delaware corporation to commercialize corrosion and coating health monitoring technologies originally developed by Virginia Technologies, Inc. (VTI). These technologies include a Coating Health Monitor (CHM) that uses electrochemical impedance spectroscopy to assess the heath of a coating, an Embedded Corrosion Instrument (ECI) that monitors the corrosion of steel rebar in reinforced concrete, and a hand-held probe for the U.S. Navy to quantify the Degree of Sensitization (DoS) in the 5XXX series Aluminum alloys used in ship superstructures. ElectraWatch is well funded, having secured funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in the form of a Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant. ElectraWatch has also received Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) and was recently awarded a $750k contract to develop a prototype of the DoS Probe. ElectraWatch has a corporate headquarters in Charlottesville, Virginia and has a branch office in Linthicum Heights, Maryland.

Product Overview

Coating Health Monitor
an image

The CHM is a wireless battery powered coating health monitoring system that uses electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) to assess coating health. The flexible adhesive tape electrodes allow accurate coating monitoring in remote and difficult to access locations.

Embedded Corrosion Instrument

The ECI is an electronic corrosion sensor that provides early warning of conditions that damage steel reinforcement, leading to cracking, spalling, and other deterioration of concrete structures. By monitoring five key factors in corrosion, and by communicating these through a digital network, the ECI provides comprehensive, real-time information on structural conditions.

Sensitization Probe
DoS Probe

The Degree of Sensitization (DoS) Probe is a fieldable probe for quantitative assessment of Degree of Sensitization in marine Aluminum alloys. The DoS probe provides a fast, cost effective alternative to   ASTM-G67 testing for the evaluation   of 5XXX series marine Aluminum alloys.
