Abstract

A laser capillary spectrophotometric technique is used to study and quantify the dispersed phase mixing effects on the performance of a one liter continuous flow reactor for the cobalt-di-(2-ethylhexyl) phosphoric acid extraction system. Comparisons between the Monte Carlo simulation model predictions and experimental results, using an aqueous film reaction model, indicates that the simulation predicts the size distribution closely, the Sauter mean diameter within 10% error, and the extraction efficiency within 15% error.
