Abstract

A rational design of liquid-liquid contactors should be based on a fundamental modelling approach. In this research program, the interval of quiescence simulation model is used to account for the effects of drop size distribution, dispersed phase holdup and interdroplet mixing on column performance. To verify and improve the model during various stages of development, and obtain model parameters, a fully instrumented seven stage counter current extractor has been commissioned.
