Abstract

A contactiess cleaning system for cleaning a photosensi~ tive surface. A turbulent air flow is created by a turbine to dislodge toner particles from the photosensi~ tive surface. The cleaning apparatus consists of a high speed turbine 10 for generating a high velocity turbulent air flow next to the photosensitive surface 11 for loosen~ ing the toner particles on the surface. The loose toner particles are then collected by means of suction ports 12, An intake port 13 provides a source of air or other suitable gaseous medium for the turbine 10,
