Solution divergence in pisoFoam (Co <1)

I did not understand why the solution diverged even though Co was less than 1 and mesh quality of an expansion channel looked very good. (only hexahedral meshes used.) I confirmed that the solution converged using simpleFoam, but I have to use pisoFoam. Could you please how I can make the solution converged?
