NEW JetStream™ Rack

Introducing JetStream™ Bottle Washing Rack

We are pleased to announce Auto-Chlor Systems’ newest equipment innovation, the JetStreamtm growler and bottle washing system.  JetStream™ is unique in that it allows for instant switching between a normal dishwasher and one that is capable of washing bottles and carafes with narrow openings. The special rack and valve allow for continual spraying and flushing of the interior throughout the wash and rinse cycle, while maintaining the normal operation of the upper and lower rotating spray arms.

The JetStream™ system works with all front loading Auto-Chlor System dishwashers, including SpaceMakers, UHTs and U34s. Installation of the system is accomplished by changing the lower spray base and installing the valve. Dish racks come in both 9 bottle and 15 bottle configurations.
