Cannular Bench Top Can Seamer (REVERSE ROLLERS)

Cannular Bench Top Can Seamer (REVERSE ROLLERS)

On Sale!
Item currently out of stock

Please Note: these Cannular units were shipped from the manufacturer with the seaming rollers installed in reverse. The seamer functions the same, but the seaming operations are flipped. You will need to pull the lever toward you for the 1st op, and push the lever away for the 2nd op. Please be aware that the plaque on the side of the unit will show the opposite.

The Cannular is a manual can seamer that is easy to use, reliable, and beautifully simple.

Whether you're a brewery looking to offer canned beer to go or a homebrewer wanting to keep your creations fresh and fully protected from light, the Cannular is the answer. This bench top unit is one of the most compact and easy to use can seamers you'll find. The Cannular only requires one person to operate, and each can takes roughly 5 seconds to seam. With a two-person team, one filling and one seaming, the Cannular becomes a suitable option for nano breweries doing small canning production runs.
The Cannular's table spacer is specifically designed to work with 500ml (16.9 oz) Can Fresh aluminum cans (CAN150).  330ml (11.2 oz) Can Fresh cans are also available (CAN133), but you will need the correct table spacer to use them with the seamer (CAN103). We have tested standard 202 cans and have been able to achieve good seals with proper adjustments.  It is necessary to adjust the table height to ensure you have the appropriate amount of pressure applied when the can lift is raised.
Reverse Roller Operation:
The beauty of the Cannular lies in how truly simple it is to operate. With only three points of operation, it only takes a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the machine. The seaming process is as follows:
  • Place lid atop the can and place the can on the table spacer
  • Turn the platform lever clockwise to raise the can to the seamer
  • Press the button to turn the machine on and begin spinning the can
  • Pull the seaming lever towards you and hold for 1-2 seconds
  • Push the seaming lever away from you and hold for 1-2 seconds
  • Press the button to turn off the machine and stop spinning the can
  • Turn the platform lever counterclockwise to lower the can

That's all there is to it!

The Cannular was designed to be compact, durable, and safe to operate in a wet environment. The platform assembly is made from 304 grade stainless steel, so no matter how messy your canning gets, there's no need to worry about rusting or degradation. The body of the unit is made from hammered sheet metal and fastened together with stainless steel screws. Rubber feet help keep the unit from slipping and sliding while in use. In addition, the Cannular features built-in brackets near the feet so you have the option to mount the machine to your counter or benchtop. The Cannular runs off of 24V DC power via the Anderson socket located on the back. This lower voltage was chosen specifically to make the unit as safe to use in a wet environment as possible.
As noted above, the Cannular comes with a 24V DC Anderson socket located on the back of the unit. It does not, however, include a cord and plug. When purchasing the unit, you have the option of pairing it with either a power supply with 110V plug (CAN101), or with a 6 ft. long cord with Anderson plug and alligator clips (CAN102). The power supply is straight forward, and allows you to plug the unit into a standard 110V power socket. The alligator clips give you the option to power the unit from a battery, and can even be used with an 18V cordless power drill battery. This is certainly the most affordable option for powering the Cannular, and we've found that upwards of 200 cans can be seamed on a single battery charge.  
Why Cans?
So why can when you can bottle? There's no doubt that canning has become a more and more popular format for packaging beer among craft breweries over the last several years, and with good reason. Aluminum cans aren't just more environmentally friendly than bottles, since cans require less energy to transport and recycle, they're also much better at protecting the quality of the beer. Whereas bottles allow in light, which leads to skunking, aluminum cans offer 100% protection from UV and other wavelengths of light that are harmful to beer. There's still great debate surrounding whether cans or bottles are better at keeping beer fresh, but if done correctly, cans are theoretically the superior option. When a crown cap is crimped onto a bottle, the lining of the cap can form an imperfect seal on the bottle, allowing small amounts of oxygen in, as well as small amounts of CO2 out. Over time this can result in oxidation of the beer and lost carbonation. Seamed cans, on the other hand, form a much better seal that can prevent these issues. Of course, it's important to make sure that the can is purged of oxygen before being filled, and that the can lid is sealed atop foam to eliminate oxygen from the headspace. Aside from all the "sciency stuff", cans are just plain safer. Take your beer backpacking, camping, or poolside and rest assured that broken glass won't ruin your day!

*Please note: the table spacer included with the Cannular is specifically designed to use Can Fresh 500ml aluminum cans, which are 167.8mm tall and 52.4mm in diameter.  See below under "You Might Also Need" for an additional table spacer that can be purchased to make the seamer compatible with 330ml cans.
**Note 2: When you receive your cannular the rollers have been set and tested at the factory. They should not need adjustment for 100,000 cans. The table, however, comes unadjusted and getting it set up correctly is very important to getting a proper seal. Cannular's test show that a .4mm (.015") actual overlap is all that is needed to seal to 90 PSI. The proper table tension takes a little practice and expect to waste a few cans getting it dialed in. Once you learn the proper tension re-adjusting it is very quick and easy. You want the tension to be tight but not so tight as to dent the can. Use cans at your fill height with water for proper tension adjustment.

Worked perfect out of the box
I saw the reverse rollers discount and had to hop on the opportunity. I did a large amount of research on all of the canners on the market, and read all of the pros and cons. Given the price point, I went with this. I had concerns about the can vendor lock in and some horror stories about dialing in this unit. I have to say, my experience is that both of those concerns are unfounded. The canner is wildly customizable with different chucks and this thing worked perfectly just as it was shipped. No need to tune the table, gap the rollers or anything. Could not be happier with this thing.

Slick Caner for the Homebrewer or Nano Brewery
I initially bought the semi-auto Cannular (model 110), but had issues sealing the cans. After multiple tweeks with no success, I finally concluded that the automatic roller action does not apply enough pressure to appropriately seal. The solution: Manual application of the roller actions to 'dial in' the pressure. Despite the 'human factor, this actually was my answer. Right out of the box, this Cannular canner worked great. I have yet to can mass quantities, or try any can sizes besides 16 oz., but I am not confident I can get there. I could not beat the price either. I think this canner and company is in for the long haul and I expect to see this unit (or the 100 upgraded) in wide use amongst home brewers and small commercial outfits alike.
