Karr reciprocating-plate extraction columns: hydrodynamics and mass transfer


Milan N. Sovilj Momčilo Đ. Spasojević


Liquid-liquid extraction (solvent extraction) is one of the most commonly used separation operations in the chemical and process industries. The application of solvent extraction in industrial practice falls into several process categories: the first category consists of procedures in which this operation competes with similar operations (distillation, absorption), and the second of procedures where this operation is the only one that can be applied in the mass transfer process.
