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 apparatus allows study of such systems aswater/inorganic salts, water/sugar bed, methylene chloride/vegetable oil etc. The glass column is fitted with SS mesh to support the solid material. The solvent is introduced near the bottom of the colum


To study the effect of various system parameters like, solvent temperature, solvent rate and particle size on the %age recovery of oil from solid.
