Abstract

In a xerographic copier which incorporates an air filtration system inside the photoconductor drum, air enters and leaves the filtering chamber in drum 10 through cylindrical housing 11 which is coaxial with the photoconductor drum but does not rotate with it (Fig. 1a). In addition to accommodating the air flow path, this housing also provides a drum-removal system.
