Vortex eliminator in boiler

When water flows from large tank into a pipe a vortex ( swirling motion ) is created . This prevents a column of solid water from being maintained in the pipe and especially exposes bare sections of tube wall .
To eliminate the vortex formed when water flows from the water drum into the downcomer tubes and to keep tbe tube full of solid water , a metal grating or grill is unstalled at the inlet to the down comer .
