Powder Packer Module
The Matcon Powder Packer module compares favourably for performance with the auger filler packing systems. Change recipes faster than ever before with direct dosing from the Matcon IBC and using simple changeout parts.
Reducing recipe changeover down-time as there is less to clean and the parts are easy to strip and clean.
Small campaign runs & 'make-to-order' possible with quick changeover.
Adjustable and controlled feed, for filling bags from 5 to 25 kg at a rate of 1-3 bags/minute.
Filling sacks directly from Matcon IBCs without the need for any additional feeders or control mechanisms.
Protecting against product segregation during the packing operation, ensuring a quality product in the pack to your customer.
Spare change-out parts available to reduce cleaning down-time.
Quality assurance from optional sifting & metal detection.
Designed for discharging IBCs directly to high speed packing lines without the need for additional screw feeders. Because the discharge is automatically regulated, and delivers a consistent, controlled feed, the packing machines are able to operate efficiently, thereby maximising their throughput.
Protecting against product segregation for a quality product in the final pack.
Consistent, controlled feed enabling packing lines to maximise throughput without the use of screw feeders. Prevents choking or head-load variation.
Helps reduce changeover down-time as the system is decoupled for maximum flexibility.
Automatic control, the discharge process responds to signals from a level probe in the packing line feed hopper.
Controlled flow of powder, there is no risk of flushing or bridging in the IBC even without screw feeders.
Founded in 1980 in the UK, Matcon started with offering Discharger Valves to get difficult to handle materials to flow out of Storage Silos. In 1985 we developed this same technology to sit within each IBC, and called it Cone Valve technology It transformed the capabilities of IBCs in manufacturing as it overcame the issues that butterfly and slide valve IBCs suffered in the form of bridging, flushing and ratholing. July 2012 saw us acquired by the IDEX Corporation where we are now part of their Material Processing Technologies division along with Quadro Engineering, Fitzpatrick and Microfluidics.
With a world-wide presence, we pride ourselves on delivering top quality, innovative solutions for a broad range of manufacturers from Infant Nutrition and Food, to the Pharmaceutical and Chemical industries.
