Abstract

Adjusting a copier's magnetic brush core orientation relative to a line connecting the core and photoconductor drum centers allows large carrier bead chains to scavenge large toner agglomerates (clinkers) from the photoconductor surface and thus prevents the permanent development of same onto the surface of the photoconductor.
