Chemical Engineering - Fluid-fluid - and Fluid-gas Extraction

Insight into and calculation of separation techniques

After completion of this chemistry course, you are be able to:

  • List some reasons to choose liquid–liquid extraction over other separation techniques like distillation
  • Distinguish between the raffinate and extract layers 
  • Calculate the amounts and compositions in both phases of a single-stage equilibrium extraction process using the lever-arm rule
  • Calculate flooding velocities for packed towers
  • Determine the size of multicompartment extraction columns
