Abstract

A comprehensive simulation model incorporating liquid extraction equilibrium and interfacial reaction kinetics with dispersed phase drop dynamics is developed for Fe(III)/sulfate-Kelex 100/xylene system agitated in a continuous flow stirred tank reactor. Experiments are conducted in a 1-liter continuous flow-stirred tank reactor (CFSTR) designed for simultaneous data acquisition of dispersed phase drop size distribution and extraction efficiency. The agreement with the experimental results for reactor operational parameters validates the simulation algorithm developed.
