Once upon a time…
A naval engineer who spent a lot of his time carrying out audits & repairs was all too familiar with the devastation that corrosion causes on boats and so began to study in detail all its forms. In particular, he focused on saltwater circuits in various pieces of equipment and sensed a need for more information on sacrificial anode wear. Without realising it, he had created one of the world’s simplest sensors and this is how EasyAnode® was born. A corrosion sensor that turns red when corrosion reaches a certain level.
The simplest sensor in the world !!
This is how EasyAnode was born, a corrosion sensor that turns red when corrosion reaches a certain level.
In 2020 EasyAnode® received the TIMON award for progress through R&D, not only because of the ingenuity of the sensor itself but also because it has continued to expand in times of crisis. Instead of just staying home doing nothing, Francisco tried harder and studied more than ever. He completed his Master's in Marketing and Lean start-up and applied everything he learned to his new creation.
This award for the best product in the nautical sector which evaluates:
Degree of innovation, whether technological or otherwise.
Degree of concretion and development of the initiative.
Degree of validation in the market.
Means and human and financial resources dedicated to the initiative.
Interest aroused in the nautical field.
In addition, the company had previously received the 2017 NSAID AWARD for progress in innovation and technology.
“My goal was always to look for simplicity, efficiency, reliability whilst ensuring that the sensors was not affected by the corrosion that were monitoring. The concept whereby, the depleted anode was changed along with the internal sensing components was a eureka moment as it ensured that the system was reset and ready to go”
