Frequently Asked Questions

Water quality: High levels of dissolved minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, can increase the corrosiveness of the water. pH levels outside the optimal range can also accelerate corrosion.
Water Treatment: Implementing proper water treatment processes, including filtration, chemical treatment, and pH adjustment, can help control corrosion by minimizing the concentration of corrosive agents in the water.
Imbalances in fan blades, caused by uneven material distribution or damage, can result in excessive vibration, which may lead to premature wear of bearings and other components.
Alignment and Balancing: Ensure that fan blades are properly aligned and balanced to prevent vibration and optimize airflow distribution. This may involve adjusting blade angles, tightening fasteners, or using specialized balancing equipment.
Protecting sensitive data and ensuring cybersecurity measures are robust across the digital twin ecosystem is essential to prevent unauthorized access, data breaches, and privacy violations.
Invest in robust validation and verification processes to ensure the accuracy and reliability of digital twin models. Continuously update models based on real-world feedback and performance data.
Corrosion: While GRP tanks are resistant to corrosion, metallic components such as bolts and fittings can still corrode over time, leading to leaks and structural weakness.
Structural Reinforcement: Reinforce the structural integrity of the GRP tank by ensuring proper installation, adequate support, and adherence to manufacturer guidelines. Additionally, consider reinforcing vulnerable areas prone to impact or stress, such as corners and seams.
Rust formation on the surface of steel tanks is a visible sign of corrosion. If left unchecked, rust can penetrate the tank's surface and compromise its integrity.
Remove rust from the surface of the tank using appropriate methods such as wire brushing, sandblasting, or chemical treatment. Once rust is removed, apply rust-inhibiting coatings to prevent its recurrence.
