Extraction is a process where one or more

solute(s) are removed from one liquid phase

(technically called a diluent) by transferring

that/those the solute(s) to another liquid phase

(or a solvent)

Since this is the operation between the two

liquid phases, no vaporisation is needed; thus,

extraction can be performed at low temperatures

Accordingly, extraction is suitable for separating materials that may decompose or denature at elevated temperatures

broth (the liquid phase obtained from

biological processes)

The separation of aromatic-ring hydrocarbons (e.g., benzene, toluene) from

paraffins using sulpholane

It is important to note that, in many applications, the downstream process that separates

solvent from the solute(s) is usually more expensive than the extraction operation itself

in Figure 9.1

liquid-liquid extraction process

(from Separation Process Engineering by Wankat, 2007)

contains the first solvent (or the diluent) and

the solute is sent to the extraction unit (or the

extractor)

Another solvent (commonly called the solvent)

is also fed into the extractor, with the purpose to

remove the solute from the diluent

3

is called the raffinate phase, while the second

solvent + the solute is called the extract phase

then sent to the solvent recovery unit, to

separate the desired solute from the

extract phase

recover the second solvent, which can be

reused or recycled to be used again as the

solvent

employed in various industries; examples are

illustrated in Figure 9.2

(from Separation Process Engineering by Wankat, 2007)

the raffinate and extract phases are fed into the

system in the opposite directions

of the solute A and the diluent D is fed into the

system from the right hand side (RHS), with

the total flow rate of Ro (or R ) and the concentration (in mole or mass fraction of the solute)

of xo ; note that the flow rate of just the diluent

is FD

S or the solvent S with some amount of solute

the concentration (in mole or mass fraction of

the solute) of yN +1 is fed into the system from

the left hand side (LHS); note that the flow rate

of just the second solvent is FS

The raffinate phase exits the extraction system with the concentration of the solute of x N ,

while the extract phase leaves the system with

of the diluent D and the solute A

(i.e. the extraction system in which the concentration of the solute is low), we can assume that

R FD

E FS

Note that

R = raffinate flow rate

E = extract flow rate

FD = diluent flow rate

FS = solvent flow rate

Additionally, if the solvent and diluent are

immiscible () in each other, FD and FS

can be assumed to be constant throughout the

system

9

In order to be able to use the McCabeThiele approach for the extraction operation,

the following assumptions must be satisfied:

The system is isothermal

The system is isobaric

The heat of mixing is negligible

The diluent and the solvent are immiscible

the above assumptions, the species balance (for

the solute A) equation for the envelope shown

in the Figure 9.3 can be formulated as follows

Ey j +1 + Rx o = Ey1 + Rx j

Example A feed of 100 kg/min of 1.2 wt% mixture of acetic acid in water is to be extracted

with 1-butanol at 1 atm and 26.7 oC

The desired outlet concentration in the exiting

stream is 0.1 wt% of acetic acid

The solvent of pure 1-butanol is fed contercurrently to the feed with the flow rate of 75

kg/min

Determine the composition of the exiting

1-butanol phase (i.e. the extract phase)

Also find the number of equilibrium contacts

(stages) needed

15

In this case,

the inlet concentration of the feed

(raffinate phase) is given as 1.2 wt% of

acetic acid (or xo = 0.012 )

the outlet concentration of the raffinate

phase is given as 0.1 wt% of acetic acid (or

x N = 0.001)

The solvent is pure butanol; thus, yN +1 = 0

The flow chart for this operation is as follows

The next thing to do is to establish the equilibrium relationship between acetic acid in

water (x ) and acetic acid in 1-butanol (y )

From literature [e.g., Table 13-3 (Page 506)

Extraction

In addition to counter-current cascades or

counter-current extraction, which is the most

common extraction scheme, there are some

other types of extraction cascades

One type of such other cascades is a crossflow cascade illustrated in Figure 9.4

25

of the protein (or enzyme) alcohol dehydrogenase from an aqueous solution of 5 wt% polyethylene glycol (PEG) with an aqueous solution

of 10 wt% dextran

The entering dextran solution contains no

protein, and the PEG solution has a flow rate

of 20 kg/h

Assume that the two aqueous phases are

immiscible; note that the dextran solution is

denser than the PEG solution

Determine the following:

a) If 10 kg/h of dextran is added to a

single-stage extractor, find the total

recovery fraction of alcohol dehydrogenase in the dextran-solvent phase

26

stage of a cross-flow cascade with 2

stages, find the total recovery

= 0.12

(i.e. a solute) that is extracted from the

raffinate phase into the dextran solvent phase

(i.e. the extract phase)

27

raffinate phase is Rxo

The final (outlet) amount of solute in the

raffinate phase is Rx N

Thus, the amount of solute extracted from

the raffinate phase is Rxo - Rx N

The fraction of solute extracted from the

raffinate phase or the total recovery fraction is

Rxo - Rx N

x = x z = 0.194x F

y = -2x + 2x F

(9.10)

y = y1, out = 1.613x F

10

(9.13)

Hence, Eq. 9.13 becomes

y2, out = -2x 2 + 2 (0.194x F )

y = -2x + 0.388x F

(9.14)

37

y = 0 , x = 0.194x F

x = 0 , y = 0.388x F

Hence, to obtain the operating line for stage

2, we draw the line between the points

(0, 0.388x )

F

2 with the equilibrium line can be calculated as

follows

Equating Eq. 9.8 (the equilibrium-line equation) with Eq. 9.14 results in

38

(9.15)

8.33x + 2x = 0.388x F

10.33x = 0.388x F

x = x 2 = 0.0376x F

Substituting x = 0.0376x F into Eq. 9.14 and

solving for y yields

y = y2, out = 0.313x F

= 0.0376x F

Accordingly, the total recovery fraction of

alcohol dehydrogenase in the dextran solvent

diluent or the solvent is low (but still immiscible), we can assume that

the flow rate of the raffinate phase is

constant or can be replaced by the flow

rate of the diluent, or vice versa (i.e.

FD = R )

the flow rate of the solvent can be used

for the flow rate of the extract phase, or

vice versa (i.e. FS = E ); in other words,

the flow rate of the extract phase is

constant

40

raffinate (x i ) and extract (yi ) phases can be

used for species balance, as described and illustrated in the previous sections

However, when the concentration of the solute is large (i.e. cannot be ignored), the flow

rates of the raffinate and extract phases are no

longer constant, as

the solute is removed from the raffinate

phase, which makes the flow rate of the

raffinate phase decrease

the solute of extracted into the extract

phase, which results in an increase in the

flow rate of the extract phase

41

the flow rate of the raffinate phase (R )

must be replaced by the flow rate of the

diluent (FD )

the flow rate of the solvent (FS ) must be

used in lieu of the flow rate of the extract

phase

Additionally, the mole or mass ratio must be

employed to describe the concentrations of the

solute in the raffinate and extract phases

As per the absorption or stripping operation,

the mole or mass ratios in the raffinate (X i ) and

extract (Yi ) phases can be calculated from the

mole and mass fractions (x i and yi ) as follows

a solubility curve is established

mixture (e.g., Point M) will always be divided

into 2 phases (i.e. the raffinate phase and the

extract phase)

56

point M is dictated by a tie-line

For example, if the mixture has the composition of z A = 0.42, z B = 0.18, and zC = 0.40

(i.e. Point M), which is within the solubilitycurve envelope, it will be divided into 2 phases:

The raffinate phase with the composition

of x A = 0.80, x B = 0.10, and xC = 0.10

The extract phase with the composition

of yA = 0.15, yB = 0.21, and yC = 0.64

57

which is the point where the composition in the

raffinate phase is equal to that of the extract

phase (note that the plait point is NOT necessary to be the highest point of the solubility

curve)

If the composition is NOT within the solubility-curve envelope (i.e. outside the solubilitycurve envelope), the system will be a single

phase

again, by letting

Thus,

trial & error technique)

Note that the trial & error technique is commonly employed to solve an extraction problem,

especially for a single-stage extraction

extraction problems for the counter-current cascade system (i.e. more than one equilibrium

stage)

75

9.39-9.41, we obtain the facts that

Points E1 and RN must be on the extractphase curve and the raffinate-phase curve,

respectively

A straight line E1RN must pass through

Point M

Since x A is known and it must be on the

N

and the value of x D is known (by reading from

N

the diagram)

Once Point RN can be located, and we have

already had Point M, Point E1 can then be

specified, as illustrated in Figure 9.8

76

stage 1 gives

F + E 2 = E1 + R1

F - E1 = R1 - E2

(9.44)

stage 1 + 2 yields

F + E 3 = E1 + R2

F - E1 = R2 - E 3

(9.45)

stage 1 to stage N results in

F + S = E1 + RN

F - E1 = RN - S

77

(9.46)

streams E2 and R1 passes through each

streams E 3 and R2 passes through each

other

streams S and RN passes through each

other

streams

the differences of all pairs of the passing streams

are all equal to F - E1 or D

78

through Points E1 and F

The difference of RN - S (= F - E1 = D)

can be also depicted by drawing a line that

passes through Points S and RN

Since the difference of RN - S is equal to

that of F - E1 , these two lines meet at the same

point (i.e. Point P in Figure 9.9)

Note that, if we let D = P , it means mathematically that

F - E1 = P

79

F = E1 + P

(9.47)

obtain the fact that

RN = S + P

(9.48)

R +E = M

(9.22)

F , E1 , and P must be on the same line

and that F is the intermediate point between Point E1 and Point P

RN , S , and P must be on the same line

and that RN is the middle point between

Point S and Point P

80

the meeting point (Point P) is called the operating point

lines and the location of the operating point

(from Separation Process Principles by Henley, Seader, and Roper, 2011)

1, they are in equilibrium with each other, which

means that there is Point R1 on the raffinatephase curve connecting to Point E1 by a tie-line

81

however, we can draw the tie-line that passes

through Point E1 by interpolating from the

nearest two tie-lines

Drawing a tie-line from Point E1 to the raffinate-phase curve yields Point R1 , as illustrated

in Figure 9.10

R1 - E 2 must pass through Point R1 and Point

P

stages for a partially miscible extraction system

(from Separation Process Principles by Henley, Seader, and Roper, 2011)

P and passing through Point R1 until we reach

the extract-phase curve, we obtain Point E 2

From Point E 2 , we, once again, draw a tieline to the raffinate-phase curve and obtain

Point R2

If the slope of the tie-line is upward toward the
