In xerographic copiers and copiers/duplicators, removal of toner particles from the photoreceptor after image transfer is commonly achieved by the use of a rotating fur brush. In order to provide sufficient air flow to transport the toner thus released from the photoreceptor to either a suitable container for discard or back to the toner supply for reuse, a mechanical blower is often used. The method of this disclosure provides for both the cleaning action and air flow required for toner transport away from the photoreceptor without the need for an auxiliary m ec h an i ca 1 blower .
