The mixer in the present study is essentially a Y-type micro channel with an electrode array built on the bottom wall of its straight main channel. Electro-thermally driven vortices are generated in the electrolyte above the corners of electrodes by applying ac signals at 6 peak-to-peak volts and 1 MHz with 180° phase shift to each electrode pair of the arrays. The vortices stir the liquid and thus enhance mixing. Experiments were carried out by feeding two equal streams of saline water with… CONTINUE READING
