Abstract

High-velocity air jets, issuing from manifold 10, create a low-pressure area adjacent a sheet of paper 11 moving on a rotating xerographic photoconductor drum 12, thereby facilitating the removal of the paper from the drum. The air jets are maintained while the paper advances over the leading portion of a vacuum belt transport 13.
