We consider phase separation in multicomponent systems in the limit as the free volume goes to zero. Excluded volume effects are taken into account via a pressure field which implicitly relates currents and forces. The pressure, obtainable from a divergence condition, may give rise to circulating currents. A simple description of the dynamics of phase separation at late times follows.
