Abstract

An apparatus and method for cleaning dusty dielectric sur- faces I such as Mylar, Saran, selenium, polyvinylcarbazole, etc,, which are used in reproducing machines~ Improved cleaning efficiency is provided simultaneously charging and wiping of the dielectric surface I. In the embodiment shown, the rotating brush 1 is comprised of fibers 2 arran- ged about a cylindrical core 3 having perforations 4~ A corona charge generating device 5 is mounted internally of the core 3, Preferably an A,C. corona generating device is employed~ If desired, simultaneous illumination of the photoreceptor can also be provided through the perforations in the core of the brush, A rotating foam roller could be employed in place of the brush 1. The perforations 4 allow the corona from the generator 5 to simultaneously charge the dielectric surface I as it is wiped by the brush l~
