An electrophotographic printing machine employs a fusing
apparatus 10 to permanently affix a toner powder image to
a sheet of support material, In this way, a copy of an
original document is reproduced, During the process of
fusing the toner particles to the sheet of support material,
volatile materials are driven from the sheet of support
material, These volatile materials frequently coat the

photoconductive drum with scrum degradating printing
machine performance, To eliminate this problem, venting
system 12 is connected via flexible tubing 14 to fuser
10. Venting system 12 includes a filter apparatus and
a blower, The blower draws air in the direction of arrow

16 to create a flow of air from fuser 10 through the filter
of venting apparatus 12, In this way, the volatile components
of the sheet of support material are removed from fusing
apparatus 10 and contained within the filter of venting
system 12.
