Principles of Stagewise Separation Process Calculations: A Simple Algebraic Approach Using Solvent Extraction.
Crittenden, Barry D.
Chemical Engineering Education, v25 n2 p106-10 Spr 1991
A simple liquid-liquid equilibrium (LLE) system involving a constant partition coefficient based on solute ratios is used to develop an algebraic understanding of multistage contacting in a first-year separation processes course. This algebraic approach to the LLE system is shown to be operable for the introduction of graphical techniques necessary for solving complex equilibrium systems. (Author/JJK)
