    Use of Although

    Is use of "Although" in the following sentences correct grammatically and conceptually? If it is not , kindly suggest ways to make it clearer.

    The secondary flow loss is due to the interaction between vortices (tip leakage and horseshoe vortices) and boundary layer of suction, casing and hub surfaces in the Wells turbine. These interactions decrease turbine performance. Although the secondary flows are a major reason for the aerodynamic losses which are responsible for 35%-40% of the total losses in the turbine passage. Thus these results will require consideration from the turbine designers.

    Re: Use of Although

    My meaning is the thing like "on the other hand". I don't want "conjunction". I want sentence of " the secondary flows are a major reason for the aerodynamic losses which are responsible for 35%-40% of the total losses in the turbine passage. Thus these results will require consideration from the turbine designers." be an independent sentence and addition information.

    "On the other hand" is OK?
