A process for separating printing ink from recycled paper fiber includes the steps of repulping recycled paper furnish with water in a rotary mixer for about 5 minutes at a consistency of 6% to 18% with a mixing element having a top speed no greater than 2,000 ft/min. This first stage repulping and mixing is followed by a second mixing stage of 20 to 45 minutes with a mixing element tip speed of 2,500 to 4,000 ft/min. Agglomerated contamination particles in the resulting slurry are removed by centrifugal cleaning and slot screening.
