Abstract

Disclosed is a toner spillage containment system for use in electrophotographic printing and copying machines employing magnetic dry powder development. Selectively applying magnetic strips about a recessed endcap for various customer replaceable toner cartridges, provides a means by which to magnetically capture and contain extraneous toner particles which tend to accumulate or may be displaced when handling or removingheplacing the toner cartridge. The containment system described is applicable for magnetically susceptible toner compositions. That is, for example, toners containing magnetite.
