Abstract

Two thin, stainless steel belts are added to the existing cooling belts attached to a supercompounder present in a toner extrusion apparatus. The aforementioned two steel belts, for example about 0.032 inches in thickness, provide a path for guiding the extrudate of toner resin and toner pigment from the nip rolls to the cooling belts. The problem of wraparound of the extrudate around the nip rolls and associated costs is avoided or minimized, and there is increased throughput.
