Shown above in Fig. 2 is a multifold fog collector for an ink jet printer. The folds of the fog collector help to break up the boundary layer of air flow around the rotating print drum. With the boundary layer air flow broken, fog from ink droplets impacting on the drum are collected in the folds of the absorbent fog collector.
