Solid-Liquid Extraction Packed Bed Type
This setup is designed to study the performance characteristics of solvent extraction of a particular component from a packed bed of solid material.
The glass column is fitted with SS mesh to support the solid material.
The apparatus allows the study of such systems as water/inorganic salts, water/sugar bed, methylene chloride/vegetable oil etc.
The solvent is introduced near the bottom of the column and it flows upward counter-currently to the solids.
Solvent feed tank is kept in a bath fitted with a heater and digital temperature controller is used to maintain the constant temperature.
A pump supplies the solvent and flow rate is monitored by means of a Rota meter.
Extraction Column: Material Borosilicate Glass.
Solvent Flow Measurement: Rota meter.
Heater: Nichrome wire heater
Temperature Sensor: RTD PT-100 Type.
Solvent Tank: Made of Stainless Steel, Capacity 30 Ltrs. Double wall.
