The Oktober SL1 Homebrewer Can Seamer is designed to seam aluminum beverage cans with size 202 ends (tops) with the B64 style profile. SL1 Homebrewer comes standard with adapters for 16oz and 12oz cans. Because the seamer shares the same upper and lower chucks and adapters as Model 7 – B can seamers, it can optionally be set up for CDL and SuperEnd® (360 end®) profile ends (excluding size 200 ends), as well as optional can sizes like 500ml, 8oz “stubby”, etc. There is also an option for 220V 50Hz power requirements (export model).
Our original idea in 2014 was to build a can seamer specifically for home brewers, and we have finally accomplished that goal. After building over 3000 of our Oktober MK series can seamers and crowler can seamers for professional breweries and businesses, we have learned a lot about what a can seamer absolutely needs, and what it can live without. It’s because of those realizations that we updated the design of the seaming rollers and placed them both on a single lever arm; fewer parts = less cost. The SL1’s frame and drive cover are also more utilitarian.
It’s not quite as pretty as the MK series, but it creates the same quality seams, and will do so for many years and many cheers.
What is the difference between the SL1 Homebrewer seamer and the Model 7 – B Professional seamer?
The Model 7 – B and SL1 can seamers share many components and features. Both produce the same high-quality seams.
The Model 7 – B is designed for professional businesses and continuous heavy use with simple quick daily maintenance.
The SL1 was specifically designed for less frequent use and requires a bit more routine maintenance, making it less ideal for commercial applications.
