The centrifugal extractor mixes two immiscible liquids, a solvent and a liquid mixture, to extract a component from the mixture.
The extraction process involves:
1. Mixing an extraction solvent with the mixture for mass transfer
2. Separation of the raffinate and extract phase
3. Recovery of the desired component from the raffinate, usually by distillation
The CTL Liquid/Liquid extractor/separator features a mixing and mass transfer process between two phases concurrently in the equipment.
1. Mixing and Mass Transfer Process: Two phases of different densities are fed into the vessel and mixed for an efficient solute transfer from the mixture to the solute.
2. Separation Process: The two phases are accelerated via the rotor and separated based on their differing densities. The denser phase is brought closer to the drum walls and exits through the top weir, while the lighter phase exits through the central weir.
Small space requirements with no electrical actuators required
Lower retention time and suitable for a wider range of flow ratios as compared to conventional extraction equipment
Weir plates and rotation frequency can be adjusted for liquids of different densities and viscosities
The single/multi stage equipment in either countercurrent or crossflow arrangement establishes equilibrium quickly
Fully automatic equipment for uninterrupted continuous operation
Small equipment requires minimal solvent/extract consumption
The airtight equipment is suitable for explosive, toxic, hazardous and volatile fluids
Meets environmental and GMP requirements
Various optional add-ons such as a Clean-In-Place (CIP) mechanism, inverters or an anti-emulsification setup
By changing the electrical motor for a belt drive, the system will achieve explosion prevention requirements.
Changing the cantilever support into a multi legged structure provides increased stability.
A specially designed drum provides an improved extraction & separation efficiency, and greatly reduces operation costs.
A CIP mechanism eliminates problems caused by solid sediments.
Anti-emulsifying structure to suit a larger range of applications.
Multi-stage setup solves process issues such as gas lock.
