A method for the determination of the bivariate distributions of drop volume and drop metal concentration in a continuous flow agitated dispersion is described to afford a greater comprehension of drop mixing and its effect on the extractor performance. The system considered is cobalt nitrate-acetate buffer/di-(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid-toluene. In order to obtain bivariate (concentration and size) distribution data experimentally, a special sampling technique is employed. The work extends the previous studies using the capillary measurement technique to obtain bivariate distribution data (concentration and size) for liquid-liquid extraction systems.
