Description

The Cannular Pro is a semi-automatic 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 3 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.

Cannular Pro vs. Manual Unit
This new Semi-Auto Pro model will guarantee you get a consistent seaming process every time. Unlike the less expensive manual can seamer, this machine has no lever for the seaming operation, meaning it's even easier for the operator to seam the can consistently and will not vary on how hard the operator is pulling the lever. 

Another major difference is that the Cannular's Pro table spacer is specially designed to work with both 500ml (16.9 oz) and 330ml (11.2 oz) Can Fresh Aluminum Cans right out of the box. Unlike the manual model that requires a secondary table spacer for use with 330ml cans, the Pro model features an adjustable platform, allowing you to raise or lower the table spacer depending on what size can you're seaming. 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.

The Cannular Pro can also be adapted for use with Tin Plated Steel Cans for food packaging applications. The table spacer is designed to accept these 100mm cans, but you will need the purchase the required 100mm Chuck separately.

Operation:
The beauty of the Cannular lies in how truly simple it is to operate, and the semi-automatic pro model makes canning beer even easier. 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 seaming operation button then wait for the can to stop spinning
  • Turn the platform lever counterclockwise to lower the can

That's all there is to it!

Construction:
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.
 
Power:
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. If you only plan to use the seamer with aluminum cans, the Standard Cannular Power Supply will do. However, to unlock the full potential of the Cannular Pro, including seaming tin plated steel cans for food applications, you will need to purchase the more powerful Pro Model Power Supply.   
 
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: 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.

I'm having power supply problems, when I first plug it in the green lights on the buttons light up for a second or two then fade back off, motor wont operate at all. Anyone else had anything similar? I'm thinking I may have received a faulty transformer...

We canning!
So far so good. Did 99 of 100 cans. Crushed one before we got height right. More Beer customer service was fantastic.
One crushed can before we got it dialed in

So far, so good...but...
Have only run a 10-12 cans through the seamer and I am very happy. Very simple to adjust (if you need it...mine came ready to roll with the 16.9oz cans) and I was surprised that it is as quiet as it is. Obviously it has a noise but I expected it to be louder...big bonus to me.

My concerns...

First, there is no manual and I can't seem to find a manual online. Granted, the operation is pretty simple but some guidance on adjustments, trouble shooting and operation would be nice. (FYI, the button on the right should always be pressed in when you want the unit to control the spin. If it is not pressed in, and you let go of the spin button, your can will not get a good seam. My suggestion, always keep the button on the right pressed in.)

Second, when I put my first can in to test it out, it didn't work. Hit the button to seam it and you could hear the motor running but no spinning. Gave MoreBeer a call and they advised to pull the back off (which is actually the entire cover...its not fun to put back on) to see if anything was preventing the pulleys from spinning. What I ended up doing was manually spinning the piece that spins the can and then hit the button and it worked. Basically, chalked it up to the belt in the pulley system being pretty tight and just needed to be "broken in" a bit. If you experience this, I suggest manually spinning it a few times and coaxing it to work. After about 10 cans or so, it works without assistance.

Lastly, and not really a problem just an oddity, the power supply is weird. When you plug it in, the transformer attached to it does not sit on the same surface as the seamer. The end going from the transformer to the unit is just a few inches short of the transformer sitting level. Thought it was weird they didn't just add a little bit more cable so it would sit fully on the same service. Easy fix though, use some double sided tape or velcro to attach it to the back of the unit.

All in all, would highly recommend to those that want to get into canning, I am quite happy with the unit.
