Abstract

A major shortcoming of vacuum brush cleaners for removing toner from a photoreceptor surface is that such cleaners pro-duce, with time, filmed layers of toner and other matter on the photoreceptor surface- When the film is sufficiently thick and/or extensive, visible defects are produced on resulting copies- It is proposed to provide an apparatus for significantly extending the interval before filming occurs or for eliminating the filming of the photoreceptor surface,
