Buchner funnel

Question: What would happen if a hot saturated solution were filtered by vacuum filtration using a Buchner funnel? Hint: Cooling will occur.

My answer: A Buchner funnel is primarily used to collect a solid from a liquid. When the hot solution cools when coming in contact with the Buchner funnel, some of it will crystallize and some will pass so neither filtering a liquid nor filtering out most of the crystal solids will occur.

Is this okay?

I made a suggestion below but it is just a suggestion. I think the ending is a little awkward

some of it will crystallize and some will pass; the result is incomplete separation.(and end it there) so neither filtering a liquid nor filtering out most of the crystal solids will occur.
