COOLING OF DOCUMENT AND/OR Proposed Classification DOCUMENT FEED SYSTEM TO U~S.CL 27 1/4 PREVENT CONTAMINATION Int, CL B65h 5/22

In separating and feeding documents, particularly freshly typed originals for producing copies on a copier such as a xerographic reproduction machine, the typing inks smear or transfer onto the sheet~feeding rolls and/or belt, This ink may be thereafter retransferred to subsequently fed original documents thereby degrading the document,

To prevent the typed original from inking the document feed system, the area of the document that is exposed to the feed module area is cooled. It is felt that by cooling the input document the propensity to ink the document feed system is reduced by causing favorable physical changes in the ink either by: (I) freezing the ink, (2) coagulating the ink, (3) increasing adhesion of the ink to the paper or (4)

changing the coefficient of friction,
