In this article, it was possible to give only a few typical examples of how static mixing units have become indispensable in continuous processes where economy and ecology both play a major role. Decisive factors for the employment of these mixers in such processes are the advantages offered in the form of outstanding mixing performance, high heat and mass transfer, low energy and space requirement as well as practically zero maintenance and wear.
