Abstract: A simple model is developed for the determination of the overall coefficients of extraction and stripping, Ke,Ks, in membrane-based extraction joined with membrane-based stripping (reextraction) in circulating arrangement. Ideally mixed phases in the reservoirs are demanded. The calculation of mass transfer in hollow fibre contactors was based on integral equations for steady-state conditions. The equations of mass balance in the reservoirs (ordinary differential equations) together with equations for the calculation of exit concentrations of the transferred component in the phases flowing from the contactors (integral equations) formed a set of model equations. The overall coefficients are calculated from the time dependences of concentrations in both the feed and the solvent, or the stripping reservoirs. Constant flows of phases through hollow fibre contactors and constant volumes of phases in the reservoirs are supposed. The nonlinear dependence of partition coefficients, DF, DR, on concentration of the transferred component can be used.
