Containers manufactures by  B&B process have temperature in the range of 590 - 600 degree centigrade. It gradually decreased in cooling lehr to room temperature which takes around 70 to 90 minutes depending on machine speed. So any issue related with compressed air & Mold cooling will be eliminated at such high temperature.
