Quality Control at Grand Canning

Brewers are very careful about quality and hygiene, and so are we!

Here is a quick overview of the mobile canning quality controls we have in place as part of our mobile canning service:

1/ Bio-security

On request, we test for adenosine triphosphate (ATP) before we start canning, and we show the results to you there and then.

We worked with Diversey to make sure that all critical parts of the machine are covered by the ATP tests – we swab six different parts of our machinery, and three empty sample cans from the pallet, so that you know our machine and your cans are clean before we start work.

We also consulted with Diversey to have our filling machine’s Clean In Place process reach the highest standard, and we use Diversey chemicals exclusively.

Immediately before and immediately after each canning job, we complete a thorough CIP process, and if you want to can two or more beers on the same day, we’ll CIP between beers too.

2/ Seam Analysis

Our industry-standard seam analysis equipment measures all critical seam parameters and compares them to the can manufacturer’s specifications.

  • seam thickness
  • countersink depth
  • body hook
  • cover hook
  • overlap
  • seam gap
  • seam height

We measure random samples of filled cans while we are on-site, and we’ll send you the complete seam analysis report a few days after the job so you know your cans are seamed to the highest possible standard.

3/ Insurance

All of our staff are fully insured – in the unlikely event we break something when we are on site, our insurance will cover it!

4/ Beer Knowledge

All of our staff are Level One Cicerones and we are all home brewers too – which means we have a lot of respect for the time, trouble, and effort you have put in to brewing your beer.
