I’ve recently been asked to look into the storage of archival film with in a part of the company, in doing so I’ve had to research the size of can’s so that the fit onto the racking that we’ll be providing, as a result I’ve found that film can’s come in a variety of sizes depending on the running time of the film being stored. Below is a table of standard film can sizes with the average run length of film that can be contained.
|Type||Size in mm||Size in Inches||Run length 35mm||Run length 16mm|
|Circular small||185||7” 2/8||200ft||400ft|
|Circular extra large||385||15”||2000ft|
