Liquid-liquid extraction in an industrial apparatus is a complex process involving chemistry, interface dynamics, mass transfer and fluid mechanics. Among these phenomena, transport processes, which are size-dependent, deserve a particular attention in the scope of R and D studies (where size-reduction is encouraged, as in the nuclear industry) and for scale-up purpose. Hence, flow patterns and properties in extraction devices are the subject of increasing interest, involving numerical as well as experimental studies. In this aim, we choose to take advantage of Taylor-Couette flows, already used to perform small-scale solvent extraction studies, in order to investigate the specific hydrodynamic issues: mainly mixing and axial dispersion.
