try Yokogawa
lots of head loss, lots of velocity

not gonna happen with an aquarium pump
I know about vortex flow meters, but that's not one of them. I'm describing a swirl meter, made by ABB. It's used in a slightly different range of applications than a vortex meter.

In any case, I have no intention of measuring flow: all I want to do is induce a spin. I'm not going to nozzle the coolant input either, although I might experiment with it.

I realize that swirling will add to the flow restriction.

As an alternative, I MIGHT slap a triangular cross bar at the intake, and do the vortex thing, but that'd be for later. Right now, I'm going to concentrate on the swirler.
