Mixing Processes in the Flocculation of Microcrystalline Cellulose Sols with Cationic Polymers

In order to meet the many diverse end uses of paper, a large variety of chemicals is added to pulp fibers. As most of these chemicals are added at the wet end of a paper machine, relatively small amounts are mixed into large volumes of dilute fiber suspensions. The extent of mixing achieved can, therefore, be critical to the performance of the additive.
