SCHEIBEL® Column for a Fragrance Liquid-Liquid Extraction Process

Brunswick, GA

A global producer of flavors and fragrances came to Koch Modular for the design and development of a continuous liquid-liquid extraction process using an agitated extraction column for the extraction of an impurity from a valuable organic fragrance feed stream.
Developing a liquid-liquid extraction process can be difficult due to complex chemical phenomena that occur at the liquid-liquid interface. Koch Modular engineers overcome these challenges by performing pilot testing after which optimal operating conditions, such as feed and solvent rates and agitation speed, are determined to ultimately provide a successful commercial extraction column.
