Abstract

An improved process and apparatus for liquid development of electrostatic latent images adjusts doctoring pressure in response to ambient temperature to provide appropriate devel-oping quantities of liquid developer over a range of operating temperatures. The process and apparatus are particularly useful in those embodiments wherein liquid developer is transferred from an applicator member to an electrostato-graphic imaging surface, including means for loading the applicator with the developer and blade means for doctoring the applicator to provide developing quantities of liquid developer thereon.
