I use a pump to improve the whirlpool and welded pegs in to hold a damn to help keep the cone of hops and break material from exiting keg.
Very nice, what size are the tubes?

My outlet is on the bottom curve of the keg. First the outlet goes down to a chugger pump and up to a 3 way valve straight into the tangential inlet. That gets the hops and hot break forming in the middle of the kettle. Then I turn 3 way valve to go to a brewers hardware filter into a blichmann plate chiller into tangential inlet. Once it's down to pitching temp I go back to the route with out chiller because it gets a stronger whirlpool. Wait 20 minutes and then to fermenter.

Have you tried using your herms to chill?
