Matcon, a unit of IDEX Material Processing Technologies, 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.

Each Matcon IBC incorporates our unique Cone Valve technology which offers controlled discharge of material without the risk of segregation, bridging or blocking; even for some of the most difficult to handle powders. Cohesive materials can be stimulated to flow, whilst very free-flowing powders can be controlled.

Our ability to overcome these powder handling issues, combined with the emphasis we place on hygiene and containment, means we have a well-established customer portfolio which includes both national and multi-national companies and Contract Manufacturing Organizations (CMOs) alike, most notably in the Infant Nutrition, Beverage, Food Ingredient and Bakery sectors.

We offer a personalized 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.

Please be sure to visit us in Hall 10.1 on Stand A40 for further information about our powder handling systems. Most importantly, we’re interested in learning more about your business and its needs. Our sales team will be available to discuss how Matcon can help your company with exactly the solutions that you’re looking for.
