Default Non Orthogonal Faces in checkMesh

Hello Everyone,

My geometry consists of a box and a rectangular pipe inside.

I want to have smaller number of cells in pipe region as compared to box region.

I used submesh for this in salome, but when I import the UNV file of this mesh into Openfoam, and RUN the checkMesh, it gives the non-orthogonal faces in my mesh.

I read that If we use noOrthoCorrectors in fvSolutions, then we will not have any problem in simulation. but I don't know, how to use that.

for example, If I have 2000 non-orthogonal faces, then how many nonOrthoCorrectors I should use in fvSolutions?

And in which fvSolution I will put this? because I have fvSolution file in both pipe and box region.

I shall be thankful if someone can help me in this.

Thank you
