Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR DIFFUSIVE TRANSFER BETWEEN IMMISCIBLE FLUIDS
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE TRANSFERT PAR DIFFUSION ENTRE DES FLUIDES IMMISCIBLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Apparatus for carrying out a process between first and second immiscible fluids, comprises first and second channels (2, 4) defining flow paths (24), for permitting fluid flow of respective first and second immiscible fluids therethrough. Portions of the flow paths are disposed close to, or adjacent to, one another and communicate with one another to define a region (3) in which, in use, a stable interface (6) between the fluids is formed. One or more dimensions of the region (3) are varied along the length of the interface (6) in a direction of fluid flow to compensate for variation in the properties of the fluids during the carrying out of the process and thereby maintain stability of the interface (6).
(FR)L'invention concerne un appareil servant à exécuter un processus entre des premier et second fluides immiscibles et comprenant des premier et second canaux (2, 4) formant des voies d'écoulement (24) pour les premier et second fluides, respectivement. Des parties de ces voies d'écoulement sont rapprochées ou adjacentes les unes aux autres et communiquent entre elles au niveau d'une région (3) dans laquelle, en utilisation, une interface stable (6) se forme entre les fluides. La ou les dimensions de la région (3) varient selon la longueur de l'interface (6) dans un sens de l'écoulement du fluide afin de compenser les modifications de propriétés des fluides au cours du processus et maintenir par conséquent la stabilité de l'interface (6).
