Smooth Fuser Hot Roll Has Good Print Release at Low Oil Rate
Disclosed is a means to minimize the amount of oil on print for a wet release
Wet release fusing systems use an oil, such as silicone, to assist the release
of toned prints from the hot roll. The oil is uniformly applied to the hot roll by a
wicking system (see figure) consisting of a compliant, porous wick material, a
holding fixture, a loading mechanism, and an oil supply. In this system, the
proper oil saturation level in the wick is maintained by matching the oil input rate
from the reservoir to the oil removal rate due to the hot roll. When the hot roll
surface roughness is made less than 50 microinches (Ra), good print release is
achieved at oil rates of 0.2 to 0.6 milligrams per print.
The benefits of reducing the amount of oil per print are:
- Makes it easier to write on the print with an ink pen.
