Metal Tin Can Dimensions
Understanding metal tin can dimensions is easy if you know how to interpret the numbers. Here is a guide to help you.
- In North America, numbers are usually stated in inches and in 16th of an inch.
- By way of convention, the diameter of the can is always mentioned first.
- The most basic can size description lists only two dimensions: diameter x height.
- Each number is a three digit number which is broken down into the following components:
(a) The first digit represents inches.
(b) The second and third digits represent a 16th of an inch.
An Example – Putting it all together
A can with the dimensions 307 x 409 means that the can is 3 inches and 7/16th of an inch wide (across its diameter); and it is 4 inches and 9/16th of an inch high. So using the cart above, this can in our example is a #2, 19oz, can.
