13.9 Partially Miscible Single-Stage and Cross-Flow Systems

Single-stage extraction systems can easily be solved with the tools we have developed. A batch extractor would consist of a single vessel equipped with a mixer. The two feeds would be charged to the vessel, mixed, and then allowed to settle into the two product phases. A continuous single-stage system requires a mixer and a settler as shown in Figure 13-2. Here the feed and solvent are fed continuously to the mixer, and the raffinate and extract products are continuously withdrawn from the settler. Figure 13-17 shows this schematically. The calculation procedures for batch and continuous operation are the same, the only real difference being that in batch operations S, F, M, E, and ...
