Abstract

In certain two component developer housings augers are used to transport developer material around the housing. Fresh toner is added at a single point in the developer material flow path. Augers usually do a poor job of dispersing and charging fresh toner that is added to the developer material. The toner tends to ride on top of the developer material as it flows down the length of the auger.
