Powder Recipe Formulation

Precise, clean, fast

Reduce waiting times spent in formulating powder recipes for batch processing.

Matcon Powder Recipe Formulation Systems - The Benefits

Recipes can be formulated directly into IBCs, which is done off-line and added into the flow of batch processing as required. Traceability is possible with check weighing capabilities and material tracking.

Our recipe formulation systems prevent a slowing down of production flow.

Matcon SackTip

Sack Tip Module

Formulate recipe batches directly into IBCs using the Matcon IBC Filling system.

Formulate recipes offline away from the blending operation. Directly tip ingredients into IBCs in a contained manner, reducing the amount of dust compared to filling traditional fixed mixer systems.

The fully contained transfer of material into the IBC reduces the occurrence of spilled or wasted material.

An efficient, dust-tight way to fill IBCs quickly and efficiently from sacks.

Bring into the batch processing flow when ready.

Hygienic, easy to clean design for fast changeovers.

Features at a glance

Dust-tight formulation of recipe batches without risk of contamination.

A fully contained transfer of materials means that no product is spilled or leaked, thereby removing the risk of cross-contamination.

Hygienic, easy to clean design giving fast, efficient recipe preparation. High manufacturing efficiency rates as IBCs are formulated off-line and rapidly brought into blending without causing mixer down-time.

Traceability is achievable with check weighing and material tracking.

Full recipe formulation is possible including minor and micro ingredient additions.

Create a clean environment with dust-free transfers

  • Flatbed vibratory sieve & magnetic grate catch 'tramp' material.

  • Optional weigh platforms offer check weighing facilities.

  • De-coupled operation for maximum flexibility.

IBC Washing - clean and simple

The Matcon system is based on using Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to transport powders between manufacturing steps and to blend powders to a homogenous mix.

Our IBC filling equipment is extensively used in the following industries:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Chemical
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Beverages and Mixes
  • Flavourings
  • Infant Nutrition
  • Bakery

Flexi Batch Filling Module

Flexibatch Module

An accurate and cost-effective, flexible recipe batch processing system for larger throughput requirements.

Ideal for reducing the time spent in weighing and for minimising the risk of human error in formulation.

The Flexi-Batch formulation system comprises a number of ‘ingredient’ containers located on a framework, with ‘batch’ containers traveling below collecting the ingredients according to programmed batch recipes.

Eliminate the risk of human error in recipe formulation

If you have a large number of ingredients to assemble for each recipe, you can reduce the amount of time spent in weighing and batching by automating the process.

This also reduces the risk of error in measuring or adding ingredients.

  • Configurations are dependent upon throughput rates, the number of raw ingredients & accuracy levels required.

  • Automated preparation of ingredients from 10-1000kg.

  • Ability to deliver multiple recipes from one formulation street as contained transfers possible.

  • Full batch traceability and security.

Automated, Reliable Recipe Batching

  • Achieve accurate formulation of recipe batches and fast replenishment of ingredients.

  • A fully contained transfer of materials means that no product is spilled or leaked, thereby removing the risk of cross-contamination.

  • Flexibility to deliver multiple recipes from one formulation street.

  • Reduce the time spent weighing ingredients and adding them to the mixer or container.

  • Full recipe formulation is possible including majors, minors and micro ingredient additions all on the same line.

  • High manufacturing efficiency rates as IBCs are formulated off-line and rapidly brought into blending without causing mixer down-time.

Improve Recipe Formulation

Multiple raw ingredients are stored in easily detachable polyethylene bottles held on a rotating carousel. Automatically dispensing micro & minor ingredients from a pre-programmed recipe.

The module comprises:

  • 10 bottle carousel
  • Integral auger dosing for accurate dispensing
  • Interchangeable bottles for fast changeovers
  • Automatic recipe control
  • Doses typically up to 10kg with 4g accuracy
  • Additional ingredient bottles optional

Remove bottlenecks in the batch processing operation

Formulate the micro & minor ingredients off-line. Lessen the risk of human error in weighing by using automation.

  • Repeatable, high accuracy dosing
  • Reduced number of weighments
  • Fast changeovers
  • Easy clean bottle design.

Focus on the value-adding tasks

The system allows operators to focus on more challenging and rewarding tasks and remove risk for human errors - ultimately securing quality and brand reputation.

Originally designed for the Bakery industry, this micro dosing module now has a wider portfolio of uses and can be deployed for any minor or micro ingredients.
