Static mixers are continuous radial mixing devices, characterized by an effective degree of plug flow, depending on the specific design and application. They range in size from a few millimeters in diameter to units with equivalent diameters exceeding 3 m and volumes exceeding 100 m3. Static mixers make a high degree of homogeneity in a very short length of pipe.
