Abstract

Proposed is a shield for use in conjunction with a multiple color developer housing system. As depicted on the accompanying figure, the shield 2 is attached to the vacuum manifold 12 on the trail edge side, in the direction 14 of rotation of the photoreceptor 10. The shield prevents toner cloud particles emanating from developer housing 4 from entering and contaminating other areas of the system, in particular, the electrostatic voltmeter (ESV) 16, and the adjacent developer housing 6 containing a different color toner.
