In this work, the possibility of diluting chemicals using white water in paper making process instead of fresh water was discussed. The circulation water was found to be harmless to the fines and filler retention when retention aids chemicals were prepared with fresh water. The retention performance of the dual retention aids system consisting of CPAM and bentonite was determined when dissolved using white water. It was found that the dissolution of CPAM with white water from disc saveall did not have an influence on the efficiency of retention aids system, while the flocculation function of bentonite was significantly affected by the quality of white water. Moreover, the result indicated that it was feasible for fixing agent PEI to be dissolved with white water in this experiment.
