Abstract

In magnetographic systems which use a magnetic tape or other magnetic media for imaging with magnetic toner, it is often required to provide media cleaning devices in numerous locations to assure that toner does not get back into the recording system or into web take-up rolls where it can get pressure fused onto the media. Magnets cannot be used near the imaging media since they would erase the image.

In magnetographic systems which use a magnetic tape or other magnetic media for imaging with magnetic toner, it is often required to provide media cleaning devices in numerous locations to assure that toner does not get back into the recording system or into web take-up rolls where it can get pressure fused onto the media. Magnets cannot be used near the imaging media since they would erase the image.

Disclosed is an inexpensive but effective cleaning system wherein a soft brush is used to remove the toner from the magnetic imaging media and a single magnetic brush roll is used to remove the toner from the brush. A conventional flicker bar arrangement can be used with the brush to assist in toner removal, and a doctor blade is used on the magnetic brush roll to remove the toner into the collectable tray or bottle for reclaim if desired. Neither vacuum nor filters are required in this system, thus reducing cost and complexity.
