WHAT IS A CONE VALVE?
Matcon IBCs have a ‘passive’ cone seated within the outlet of the bin. When located on the discharge station an ‘active’ probe assembly lifts the cone which creates and annular gap causing material to discharge under mass-flow.
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT?
It is a superb discharging device overcoming all manner of powder flow problems. The lifting action of the cone breaks up bridged product and prevents material from rat-holing and causing material segregation.
Matcon supplies world leading IBCs for the processing, storage and transport of bulk material solids, powders, granules and tablets. Matcon’s unique Cone Valve technology within each IBC prevents the traditional powder handling issues of bridging, blocking and blend segregation.
MATCON’S STANDARD IBC RANGE
Designed to meet the highest hygiene and safety requirements, the container is manufactured with no enclosed crevices or hollow sections that could trap product or contaminants. Efficient and dust-tight, they provide a system that lives up to the most rigorous of standards.
Our IBCs are manufactured from 316L stainless steel or 304 stainless steel, dependent upon the application.
300 – 500 Litres: Small IBCs for smaller batch sizes or testing purposes.
1,000 – 2,000 Litres: Most commonly used range of IBC batch sizes.
2,500 – 3,500 Litres: Large scale IBCs to match larger batch requirements.
Polyethylene IBC Range: An alternative to stainless steel IBCs.
Our R Series IBCs comprise a polyethylene bottle supported in a steel framework. These are commonly used in non-food, non-hygienic applications where the use of a stainless steel IBC would be unnecessary. As they are fitted with Cone Valve technology they will still protect against segregation, rat-holing and bridging.
The Cone Valve technology means that no matter what you might want to manufacture in the future, you will have the ability to handle the ingredients and recipes effectively – a future-proof solution!
