Abstract

In a continuous stream-type ink jet printing system, mist is generated during the printing process as the ink droplets spatter upon impacting the printing surface. One method of controlling this mist is to allow it to collect on readily replaceable surfaces. However, in a high volume printing environment, this kind of passive mist control becomes too inefficient.
