The York Scheibel’s column falls in the class of gravity – operated extractors with mechanical agitation. The presence of alternatively agitating and calming sections in York Scheibel’s column yield higher extraction efficiency than the conventional packed column. Each stage consist of a woven wire mesh section and mixing section. The total set – up is housed in a well designed rigid structure. The structure also supports tanks, piping, Rota meter ,piping and other units.
