Koch Modular to Discuss Optimal Mixing in Agitated Extraction Columns at ISEC 2022
Presentation by Donald Glatz, Koch Modular Extraction Technology Manager, to take place on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 2:50 pm CEST.
As a proud Gold Sponsor for the 2022 International Solvent Extraction Conference (ISEC), Koch Modular is ready to showcase industry leadership and innovation at this year's conference held at the Chalmers University of Technology in Göteborg, Sweden, September 26-30, 2022.
On Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 2:50 pm CEST., Koch Modular Extraction Technology Manager, Donald Glatz, will present on optimal mixing in agitated extraction columns. When designing an agitated column, the goal is to find the optimal speed to produce the best possible efficiency. Companies typically have two options for providing mixing in agitated columns: rotating type impellers and reciprocating plates. Donald’s presentation will explore the relative benefits of these two types of mixing techniques and how each can be used to provide the best column design for different types of two-phase systems for liquid-liquid extraction (LLE).
“The International Solvent Extraction Conference has always been an important event for us and a chance to engage directly with a wide range of industry colleagues––from early career researchers to established engineers,” said Glatz. “We’re excited to bring our unique knowledge to the table to further enrich the extraction technology field and to address the challenges that would otherwise limit the process development capabilities of companies worldwide,” Glatz added.
Our experienced extraction engineers look forward to sharing their expertise on extraction technology and applications within the chemical processing industry.
