Engineering Companies without ties to Materials or Construction

Valenti Technological Innovations (V-T-I.com recommends that a independent corrosion consultants be considered periodically to evaluate their cathodic protection systems (and any other sole source consultant) where the interest of their client may be in conflict with the bottom line of the vendor.  Consultants without ties to material or construction can provide the client with an unbiased review of revisions / upgrades to the system, and if deficiencies are found, identify them so that they can be addressed during any warrantee period.

Turn Key Firms (Combination Service*)

* Denotes that buyer beware as the company may have a vested interest in conflict with that of their client. A design which offers only products the firm can supply, specifically proprietary products, when a generic or readily available product (more cost effective) would yield similar results in performance.  At a minimum, a company specifying a sole source product / firm should list the reasons for these actions.  Additionally, there may exist a conflict between  internal departments, i.e. Engineering Design /  Construction Materials Installation / Engineering Evaluation Installation Effectiveness ,  if key words in reports are "cathodic protection currents is being afforded the structures" rather than stating that "NACE. International accepted criteria for cathodic protection has been satisfied".
