Intermediate Bulk Containers

The Intermediate Bulk Container is at the core of the Matcon powder handling system solution. It is designed for rapid filling and emptying with washing off-line. The Intermediate Bulk Container allows all the manufacturing processes to run at the same time for optimum production efficiency.

The sizes range from 150 to 3500 litre capacity and are manufactured from Stainless Steel with a hygienic and easy-clean design.

The unique Cone Valve technology inside each Intermediate Bulk Container distinguishes Matcon from other suppliers by overcoming the normal powder handling issues of bridging, blocking and blend segregation. The vertical lifting action of the Cone Valve breaks any bridges and encourages the flow of sticky powder compositions. An annular gap is created at the outlet, allowing material to flow in a mass-flow manner, preventing rolling of particles and segregation.
