Abstract

Disclosed is a process and apparatus enabling admixing and effective stabilized triboelectric charging values for a colored developer composition present in, for example, xerographic imaging and printing apparatuses. More specifically, the aforementioned process is accomplished by affecting the continuous mixing for the entire time period during which the imaging apparatus is generating output copies in developer units present in the imaging, or printing apparatus, which units have incorporated therein colored developer compositions containing, for example, toner resin particles, and cyan, magenta, yellow, or mixtures thereof. Therefore, the process disclosed involves the mixing of a yellow and cyan developer when the magenta developer is being utilized for imaging.
