Abstract

This disclosure relates to a cleaning device for the pressure roll of a heat and pressure roll fusing apparatus. More specifically, it relates to a cleaning device which must be fitted into a rather confined area yet contains enough surface area to effectively clean the pressure roll. Accordingly, there is provided (as shown in the figure) a cleaning web 10, one end of which is wrapped about a fixed rod 12 and the other end of which is wrapped about a movable rod 14. The fixed rod 12 is carried by a pair of brackets 16 (only one shown) adjacent one end thereof. The brackets are stationarily mounted relative to the pressure roll 18, which is to be cleaned. A pair of springs 20 are attached to the movable rod 14 and the other ends of the brackets 16 in order to load the cleaning web 10 against the pressure roll with the desired amount of force.
