The following chart is a list of the food can sizes we carry and also the chuck sizes associated with those cans:
The chuck is a disk-type part of the can sealer / seamer that holds the lid in place on top of the can during the seaming process.
All can linings / coatings are food grade unless specifically specified otherwise – call for details.

Note that it is important that the chuck size diameter correctly matches the can size diameter in order for the seaming process to be successful.

Wells Can Company does not ship damaged cans. Period. However, due to the nature of the shipping process, some of the metal cans will receive small dents or be damaged. This is common, and in no way effects the usability of the can. If you find the number of dented / damaged cans unacceptable, please feel free to contact us. In such cases we will assist you in whatever way we can to place a claim with the shipping company. The ultimate responsibility lies with purchaser to process any claims with the relevant shipping company.
