Cavitation Pump

I am currently designing a cavitation (hydrosonic pump) heater for my final year project and i have started using the solid works flow simulation for the first time. I made my design basic for the simulation only including housing, shaft and plate to see if this phenomenen is possible on solidworks. First test, there was a vortex being created so i put in a an impellor to counter this and i am still having the same problem. Is there anyone who has created heat by the processs of cavitation on solidworks flow sim and is it possible? I have attached a photo of as basic as possible i can simulate with. Any help would be great
