Register / View: Small Scale Canning and the Art and Science of Double Seam Integrity 101
The freshness of any canned product is dependent on the quality of its closure, so if you’re canning your own beer, one of your most critical areas of focus should be ensuring the best seam possible. The taste and shelf life – and ultimately the reputation – of your brand depends on it.
Pneumatic Scale Angelus has long been known as the industry leader in can seaming technology for high speed beverage lines, and we have taken that expertise and scaled it for the needs of craft brewers. In this session you’ll learn the essentials of seaming and what role it plays when selecting a canning line. Join our experts as they share their knowledge on:
1. What is a double seam and why does it matter?
2. What are the essential components of a double seam?
3. What part does seamer tooling play in seam formation?
4. What is the process for proper seam formation and what adjustments can affect seam quality?
5. What are the characteristics of an ideal seam versus one that compromises the quality of your product?
At the end of this session, you’ll understand the impact a proper seam has on your finished product. Join us for Episode 2 to learn about the tools, measurements, and procedures for evaluating seam quality, including internal and external examination. In Episode 3, we’ll pull it all together with a demonstration using our own CB50 canning line.
