Handbook of Solvent Extraction, Wiley Interscience publications. Edited by Teh C. Lo, Malcolm H. I. Baird, and Carl Hanson.
1983 edition. 980 pp.

Contains specialized articles from many different experts in the field of industrial solvent extraction. Here's a sampling of some of the chapters:

Chemistry of Extraction of Nonreacting Solutes - N. F. Ashton, C. McDermott, and A. Brench
Unsteady State Extraction - L. Steiner and S. Hartland
Principles of Mixer-Settler Design - M. J. Slater and J. C. Godfrey
Pulsed Packed Columns - A. J. F. Simmons
Scheibel Columns - E. G. Scheibel
Centrifugal Extractors - M. Hafez
Lube Oil Extraction - B. M. Sankey and D. A. Gudelis
Liquid-Liquid Extraction in the Food Industry - W. Hamm
Commercial Processes for Precious Metals - R. I. Edwards and W. A. M. te Riele
Recovery of Metals from Liquid Effluents - S. O. S. Andersson and H. Reinhardt
Instrumentation and Control - S. P. Plonsky
Cost of Equipment - D. R. Woods
Cost of Process - M. W. T. Pratt

There are 31 chapters in all. Though there have been innovations in solvent extraction technology since 1983, the fundamentals remain true now as they did when this book was published. Many of the processes detailed in this book are still in wide use; this isn't computer technology. At the very least, this book provides an important starting point for further research. The early chapters go through the theory, starting with the mathematics of solvent extraction systems.
This is a good theoretical and practical foundation for anyone going into a field working with industrial solvent extraction.
