Default velocity on solids

pingat is on a distinguished road
I try to set up a fan on a solid by using facezones.

The velocity is fine, but it is important, that there is no loss in pressure inside my solid. (see attached pictures)

Is such a thing possible? Is there a special BC?

here are my p and U settings:

type fixedValue;
value uniform (0 0 0);

type zeroGradient;
type fixedValue;
value uniform (0 1 0);

type fixedValue;
value uniform 0;
Thanks for any help
