CANNULAR COMPACT CANNING MACHINE - BENCH-TOP CAN SEAMER
Please note this item is currently out of stock but is available for pre-order
 
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 seating table is specifically designed to work with the can fresh aluminum cans. We're continuing to test the can seamer with different cans on the market, but at this time the Can Fresh cans are the only ones we're able to recommend with absolute confidence.
 
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 platform
  • 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
  • Push the seaming lever away from you and hold for 1-2 seconds
  • Pull the seaming lever towards 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!

 

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. When purchasing the unit, you have the option of pairing it with either a power supply with 110V plug, or with a 6 ft. long cord with Anderson plug and alligator clips . 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!
