Corporate Profile

Eric Villasenor, Founder/President

Established in 2004, Eddy Current & Coating Sales (ECCS) has become an industry leader supporting the HVAC liquid chiller market with cutting edge eddy current analysis, chiller specific tapered brass tube plugs, ancillary NDT services, & Ceramic Prime epoxy coating offered throughout the United States.

A 1985 graduate of Don Bosco Tech (Rosemead, CA), Eric received his (A.S) degree in Materials Science (Metallurgy), then spent the next five (5) years working as a full-time analyst in the aerospace industry (Northrop Aircraft, Allied Signal), while supplementing with Chemical Engr & Materials Science courses @Cal Poly Pomona.

Entering the industry in 1990, he became Manager of Turbex Heat Transfer (’90-93), then General Manager of ETEC (1993-2004), while accumulating millions of tubes of expertise testing virtually every type of domestic & foreign manufactured chillers.

In 1996, at age 29, he became one of the youngest ever to obtain Carrier eddy current worldwide certification, as well as, authoring an eddy current article in the national publication “The Analyst”.

As ECCS, he is the Corporate certified Level III Examiner in E/T (eddy current) of nonferrous tubing per the ASNT SNT-TC-1A Recommended Practice, Level II certified in borescope visual inspection (V/T), ultrasound (U/T) thickness testing, infrared thermography (IRT), and penetrant inspection (P/T), as well as, Level I in R/T (X-ray) & MPT (Magnetic Particle).

Although field inspection requires travel, there are several benefits to embracing a regional client base, in the manner ECCS pursues: a more “green” travel footprint, efficient test turnaround, competitive pricing, superior customer service, and a faster response with a sense of urgency.

This helps minimize time away from home, while giving the clients peace of mind that the work is done right the 1st time.

An unbiased, scientific approach to field performed NDT is an absolute that simply cannot be compromised. It is the mission of ECCS to exceed your expectations with cutting edge instrumentation, impeccable credibility, & outstanding customer service.
