Abstract

In the xerographic cassette 1 of the Xerox 5046 copier, the toner reclaim system 2,4 transports toner 3 from the cleaner to the developer. In order to move the toner 3 through an angle of go", this reclaim system includes two augers 2,4 set at right angles to one another. An excessive flow of toner 3, as it is diverted through go", leads to a tendancy for the augers 2,4 to stall.
