Abstract: To a given system of conservation laws

\begin{displaymath}\left\{ \begin{array}{l} u_t + f(u,v,h(u,v))_x =0 \\ v_t + g(u,v,h(u,v))_x =0 \\ \end{array}\right. \end{displaymath}

we associate the system

\begin{displaymath}\left\{ \begin{array}{l} u_t + f(u,v,s)_x = \epsilon u_{xx} ... ... {s - h(u,v) \over \tau} = \epsilon s_{xx}, \end{array}\right. \end{displaymath}

which is of mixed type. Under certain conditions, convergence of this latter system for $\epsilon \rightarrow 0$ with $\tau = o(\epsilon)$ is established without the need of stability criteria or hyperbolicity of the left-hand sides of the equations.
