The Ross low-pressure drop static mixer consists of a series of discriminately positioned elements. Each element includes a pair of semi-elliptical plates set 90° to each other; the next element is rotated 90° about the central axis with respect to the previous element set. As fluid moves through each element, the flow is continuously split into layers and rotated in alternating clockwise and counterclockwise directions to enhance the random motion of molecules and formation of eddies. Component streams are pre-combined upstream of the mixer. Minor components can be injected into the main flow through a port near the mixer inlet.
