Abstract

Disclosed is a cleaning system comprised of two electrostatic cleaning brushes and a single commonly shared detoning roll. In an exemplary cleaning system configuration a first brush and a second brush are in contact with a photoreceptor member and are rotated against or countercurrent to the photoreceptor process direction. The ends of the brushes are separated by a distance x and the detoning roll of a diameter x+y is positioned between the brushes but away from the photoreceptor surface to simultaneously contact and clean the brush ends.
