Halcyon Assembly™ vortex inhibitor & anti-vortex plate manufactured by Climate Tanks™ are used in fluid mechanics; a vortex is a turbulent flow that must be controlled to prevent machine failure and damage to other rotating parts and structures. A vortex is a region formed in a fluid when the fluid’s flow rotates around an axis line (either straight or curved) and the fluid flows in a swirling motion at a high velocity. It is something similar to tornadoes or whirlpools created by fast moving winds or an airplane’s wing. Inhibitors and plates help to decrease the speed of a fast moving fluid and smooth it into a laminar flow instead of a turbulent flow, thus reducing wear and tear. These units and plates also help prevent cavitation (small liquid-free zones such as bubbles or voids) in the fluid. Cavitation can create dents, shock waves and imbalance in the moving parts. Once cavitation affects a surface it tends to erode at an accelerating rate. This makes the surface prone to stress corrosion on steel, concrete, fiberglass, and plastics.
