Abstract

A method to control the tribo charge on a cleaner brush is proposed. It has been shown that the polarity of a triboelectric charge induced on a cleaner brush arises as a consequential effect, caused by the surface that it contacts. When a cleaner brush is negatively charged, good cleaning results. Conversely, when the cleaner brush is positively charged, cleaning failures occur,
