    Default Induction sealing glass bottles

    I was visiting a friend of mine that is a beekeeper and he was showing me his bottling setup for honey.
    I was curious on how it get a proper seal because honey is not hot packed. Itís slightly warmed up to 36degrees C to make it more viscous. But thatís it.
    He showed me his induction sealer. I was astonished.
    It seals a plastic jug with a plastic cap without melting the plastic. Seals a little metal disk right to the top.
    My mind was blown. I open a million bottles of various things every year that are sealed like this. And never thought how it was done.
    Iíve been struggling with the glass gallone bottles I bought 2 skids of from CDL for the past 2 years. Itís not the bottle itís the cap that is the problem. CDL replaced all my caps the first year with brown ones. They kinda worked better. Then this year gave me white ones that apparently had a different foam in them. They actually were the worst. Popped off when tipping Them on side after maybe 1 minute.
    Drives me nuts. Iíve never had 1 spoil on me. But air bubbles in the syrup donít look good. And not knowing a perfect seal is made
    My question is. Could I use induction caps on glass bottles? Somebody must of tried it.
    My bottles use 31.5pp caps.

    Not sure on the glass but I have been using induction sealing on my sugarhill plastic jugs for about 5 years. Always seals and the seal can be checked without breaking the "tamperproof". Love the way it works. Lids are a couple cents more apiece

    Thompson, which induction sealer do you use? I very rarely have any issue sealing jugs, but over the years some caps that came with lots of glass I have gotten had seal issues. I might get one and use it on everything just to be sure. Also, do you also need to use their caps or do you add the induction seal in the original cap and seal it?

    Dave Klish about 400 taps, down from much more. Retired from collecting and boiling in 2021. Mostly because of a bad hip.

    Dave,
    My machine is called Electromag Netism Induction sealing machine. I have only used it on my plastic sugarhill jugs. I buy the caps with the seals right from sugarhill. If I remember correctly, the machine came with some sample seals and I think you should be able to get them from the company. I think the machine cost me about $200.

    From what I could find looking online the liners are available separate. But there are caps that come with the induction liner as well but not in all sizes. The ones that fit my bottles are 31.5. Hard to find.
    I did contact dominion and grim and they don’t carry induction seal caps. But they said they would look into it for me.
