Abstract

es to a mu1 i-f unc ion air system for use in a xerographic reproduction apparatus. The system generally indicated by the reference character 10 utilizes an air compressor 12 attached to an air inlet tube 14 and an air intake filter 16. The positive side of the compressor provides air under pressure to an orifice 18 and to a diaphram 20. The air from the orifice 18 can be utilized for air cleaning of various elements of the xerographic processor while the diaphram can be utilized to effect pressure engagement between a fuser roll and a pressure roll (not shown). Positive air pressure is also supplied to a stripping nozzle 22 via a three-way solenoid valve 24.
