Fiber to fiber flocculation in pulp suspensions was studied and the influencing factors were discussed. The existence of a microfloc was proposed explain the behavior of flocculation versus time and degree of agitation. An experimental procedure to quantitatively describe the flocculation and its relationship to time and degree of agitation was not found. Polaroid photography, SLR photography, and a photocell and light source were the attempted methods.
