molds," Mike Urquhart, Husky's Vice President of PET, said.
"By using Cold Jet's system, our customers will find a fast

required. Cold Jet systems do not damage or change the dimensions
of the mold surface, thereby ensuring consistent part quality.

while the AeRO 75 is a heavy-duty system
that is ideal for more aggressive cleaning requirements, including
machine components. Cold Jet currently has over 200 customers in
