Mixer-Settler Coffee Extraction Machine

The mixer settlers coffee extraction is a type of extraction machine that employs a solvent in the extraction process. The machine like the name suggests has two main stages.

Also, the mixing stage is the first stage that takes place in the mixing chamber where the products are mixed.

The mixing chamber has a mechanical agitator which brings close contact of the product and the solvent in order to separate them.

Besides, the mixing stage is followed by the settling stage. This stage occurs in the settling section.

The liquids are separated by static decantation. The main force used in the settling chamber is the gravitational pull which pulls the heavier liquid down.

The coalescence plates assist in the separation process.

Coffee Extraction Columns

Extraction columns are mostly used for extraction that involves two liquids but they can also be used for solid-liquid extraction.

They are equipped with internal parts that rotate and are separated into two zones; the mixing zone and the separating zone.

In the mixing zones, there are stirrers on a vertical shaft.

The verticle shaft stirrers allow for thorough exposure of the countercurrent flowing phases. In the second zone, the separating zones.

The stages thicken before going into the following mixing zone.
