Determination of % recovery of the solute using Batch Leaching

Susarla Venkata Ananta Rama Sastry


The aim of this study was to investigate the dissolution kinetics of salt in water in a mechanical agitation system and to precipitate salt using water at various conditions. Amount of Sand, Water and Salt were selected as parameters. It was observed that increase in the Salt content and decrease in the salt/sand ratio causes an increase the dissolution rate of salt. The dissolution extent is highly increased with increase in the amount of water in the experimental conditions.
