Halcyon Assembly™ vortex inhibitor & anti-vortex plate manufactured by Climate LLC 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 the surface it tends to erode at an accelerating rate. This makes the surface prone to stress corrosion on steel, concrete, fiberglass, and plastics.
