Matcon has been delivering top quality, innovative solutions to the powder handling industry since 1980. Specialising in efficient and flexible processing of powders, granules and tablets using proven Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) technology, our solutions are supplied across a range of manufacturing industries, including food, pharmaceutical, chemical and metal powders.
We supply solutions from single IBCs through to complete powder handling systems, covering all process operations from recipe Formulation through Mixing/Blending, to Packing and Cleaning.
In the food sector, the Matcon IBC system is ideal for those with a large portfolio of recipes or those handling allergens. The ability to blend without cleaning between recipe changes and the flexibility to send IBCs to whichever packing line is ready, means that manufacturing flow is optimised and output maximised, providing excellent ROI.
Designed to the highest hygiene standards, the Matcon IBC system ensures product integrity and food safety throughout the complete manufacturing process.
Matcon IBCs are particularly well suited to pharmaceutical applications, as the Cone Valve technology enables blended powders and granules to feed directly to roller compactors and tablet compression without the risk of segregation. In fact, this unique technology allows us to supply large-scale IBCs up to 3500L, with the reassurance that the product will not segregate and will be fully discharged.
We offer a personalised service that ensures a successful project from beginning to end. In our history, we have implemented a wide range of systems from the simple decoupling of a fixed mixer to improve throughput, to a straightforward fill, blend and pack arrangement, right up to the most complex multi-batch, multi-mixer, fully tracked system.
Whether you are planning to upgrade an existing facility or design a new one, Matcon look forward to the opportunity to help design the right system for your production requirements, ensuring you achieve manufacturing efficiency, product quality and safety.
