These multistage centrifugal extractors, also known as centrifugal contactors, or liquid / liquid extraction centrifuges offer the following advantages and benefits:

  • Counter-current continuous extraction for maximum efficiency
  • Up to 7 extraction stages in a single rotor
  • Single rotor minimizes spare parts and maintenance costs
  • Very low residence time
  • Rapid operational equilibrium facilitating batch-wise or continuous extractions
  • Low hold-up relative to throughput
  • Chemical and hydraulic equilibrium achieved rapidly
  • Compact installation
  • Efficient phase separation
  • Vaportight construction with the possibility of inert gas blanketing
  • Interphase position is independent of the total and relative flowrates of the two phases
  • No mechanical seals required
  • Multiple inlets for processing flexibility
  • Unattended operation
  • High extraction efficiency
  • Discrete stage-wise operation
  • Laboratory, pilot, and industrial scale machines available
  • Cart or skid mounted systems for easy portability
  • Rental equipment available
