Rotating cylindrical electrode reactor has been employed as a continuously stirrred tank reactor for the removal of copper from dilute solutions. The mass transfer performance is enhanced by the use of mesh wound over the cylinder. The operation d the reactor in a batchwise manner treating a fixed volume of the metal bearing solution and with continuous flow of solution through the reactor is described. The average rate of removal in batchwise as well as continuous processing is arrived at. The overall efficiency of metal removal is higher for stagewise cascading operation than for one step removal.
