Engineering Design Technologies (EDT) corrosion engineers work to incorporate the most technically appropriate and cost effective measures to assure structural longevity for our Clients. Our specialists have evaluated hundreds of miles of prestressed concrete, steel and ductile and cast iron mains. Evaluations identify the extent and location of corrosion on pipelines as well as the probability of future failures and the anticipated life expectancy through analyses and correlation of soil corrosivity, corrosion potential, corrosion rate, stray current and direct inspection data. EDT performs design surveys and economic analyses for new water and wastewater facilities and recommends and designs corrosion control systems that enable achievement of goals within the Client’s economic constraints. EDT performs quality control services during construction and performs testing of systems after installation.
EDT Corrosion’s engineering staff includes registered professional engineers and NACE-certified corrosion technicians. Our professional talent allows the firm to provide expert advice and a full range of services to aid in the selection of the best protection technology to our clients. EDT has a certified soils laboratory in-house for corrosion testing. We have analyzed hundreds of soil samples for resistivity, pH, chloride content, sulfate content, sulfide content and redox potential. In addition EDT has complete GIS and CADD capabilities with experienced operators.
Whether engineering, construction contracting, or complete turnkey services are required, EDT is committed to providing the highest quality professional services to our clients in an environment satisfying and rewarding to them, with safety, budget and quality as our prime objectives.
EDT Drone Program
EDT is a leader in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or Drone-based inspection research and development helping companies to improve efficiency and quality of data while increasing safety and speed of operation. Flights are managed by FAA Part 107A Certified pilots who are also licensed FAA commercial pilots, professional engineers and/or NACE International Certified Coating/Corrosion technicians. EDT understands and knows how Drones can help your organization improve efficiency and increase safety while lowering costs. EDT uses some of the most advanced commercial drones available with software solutions for generating 2D and 3D data products from data captured by our drone. From energy audits for buildings, site surveys, pipeline inspections to construction management, EDT’s UAV Program engineers can provide economical solutions.
