Question: How can a vortex be prevented at the bottom of a separation column?
Keywords: vortex,breaking,vortices,column
Answer: Try raising the level in the bottom of the column.If you don't have a vortex breaker in the bottom of the column, add one. If you can't weld on the column, you might be able to make an insert into the bottom nozzle such as a cross.
