A Type-I model of a multicomponent system of fluids with non-constant temperature is derived as the high-friction limit of a Type-II model via a Chapman-Enskog expansion. The asymptotic model is shown to fit into the general theory of hyperbolic-parabolic systems, by exploiting the entropy structure inherited through the asymptotic procedure. Finally, by deriving the relative entropy identity for the Type-I model, two convergence results for smooth solutions are presented, from the system with mass-diffusion and heat conduction to the corresponding system without mass-diffusion but including heat conduction and to its hyperbolic counterpart.
