The most common beverage cans come in basically two diameters and a variety of heights, leading to the many volumes we are all familiar with. Standard cans are diameter 211. For instance, 16oz, 12oz, 500ml, etc. are all diameter 211. To swap between sizes, lower adapters are required. MK16 seamers come set up with adapters for 12oz and 16oz standard 211 cans,while the MK19.2 comes set up for 12oz, 16oz, and 19.2oz.
We offer lower adapters for a variety of 211 and 204 (slim or sleek) cans. Each adapter simply clips to the top of the main adapter just like a Lego™ piece.
Diameter 204 cans, known as “sleek” or “slim” cans (204.5) also require an additional can guide, which basically lines up the can for easier loading.
The MK32 can also be fitted with the optional 750ml lower adapter. This is handy specifically in states and locations where 750ml volume is required under local laws.
