Abstract

After a liquid developer material develops a latent image in an electrophotographic printing machine, the residual carrier may be reclaimed to reduce material costs. This may be achieved by passing a mixture of of water and carrier, which is Isopar, through separator. The separator is a hollow member defining a chamber with one inlet port and two outlet ports. A hydrophobic membrane covers one of the outlet ports. The other outlet port is uncovered. A mixture of water and Isopar enters the chamber through the inlet port. Isopar is separated from the mixture by the hydrophobic membrane. The Isopar passes from the chamber from the outlet port covered by the hydrophobic membrane. The residual mixture exits the chamber from the other uncovered outlet port.
