Abstract

Although many factors contribute to photoreceptor filming, untransferred fine toner particles are believed to be a sig-nificant factor. To remove these fine toner particles from a photoreceptor 10, it is suggested that a preclean foam roll 12 be installed upstream of a cleaning brush 14. The foam roll is friction driven by the photoreceptor, and toner particles are removed from the foam roll and cleaning brush by any suitable means.
