Abstract

Because the xerographic reproduction process is an e1ectro~ static process, it is sensitive to temperature and humidity changes~. Selenium photoreceptors are sensitive to tempera~ ture changes, and upink bandingu (crystallization of the photoreceptor) often occurs because of adverse temperature changes~. To eliminate or minimize the adverse effects caused by these temperature and humidity changes, an air conditioner is used to control the temperature and humidity of the air inside of a xerographic reproduction machine, The air conditioner can be built into the machine, or pro~ vided as an adapter kit, with a conduit to deliver the con~ ditioned air to the inside of the machine,
