Abstract

A woven ozone filter made from carbon containing fibers for use in electrophotographic printers and copies is disclosed. Corotron devices in many electrophotographic machines generate ozone exhaust which may be contained, for example, by filtering. An ozone filter may be prepared by incorporating carbon particles on or into a woven nylon filament fabric. Air flow through the filter may be controlled by filter design or the fabric weave density and thickness.
