Abstract

This disclosure relates to magnetic brush cleaners used in conjunction with xerographic imaging surfaces and more particularly, to a blade cleaner seal therefor. Paper fibers are produced in the paper (Le., copy sheet) feeder and are then deposited on the imaging surface during image transfer to the copy sheet. Kaolin ke., paper clay) is both produced and transferred during the transfer process. It is hereby proposed to use a doctor blade seal for collecting the paper fibers.

BLADE CLEANER SEAL FOR MAGNETIC BRUSH CLEANER (Cont'd)

As disclosed in the figure, a blade seal 10 is mounted to the bottom sump bracket 12 and slides on the photoreceptor (P/R) 14 in a doctoring mode. The blade doctors off the debris and seals it in a blade cavity 16. Earlier studies have shown that the blade will effectively clean paper fibers and carrier beads. However, the removal of Kaolin is more difficult. When heavy deposits of Kaolin were placed on the P/R, several belt cycles were required to clean the Kaolin. However, in an operating machine mode only small amounts are deposited onto the P/R during transfer. This amount is easily removed by the blade seal 10.
