In this paper the effect of using Hybrid Micro Mixers in Mixing Efficiency of Mixer is evaluated via simulations and Three Mixers with different performance are simulated. Simulations show that with using Hybrid Micro Mixer, the performance is improved. Therefore, Hybrid Mixers have the advantages such as lower cost and simpler structure compared with Active Micro Mixers.
