Washing

Processes requiring washing (or neutralization) as well as separation can be performed in one step utilizing the CINC liquid-liquid centrifugal contactors.

 

Good mixing is very important to ensure optimal mass transfer and to minimize solvent or water usage. In washing procedures where kinetics are not an issue, utlilization of the low mix bottom plate will provide sufficient mixing while minimizing fluid shearing.

 

Better process control, low retained fluid volume during processing, and reduced plant space usage are realized when using these devices in place of traditional tanks, mixer settlers, and extraction columns.
