Equipment for Chemical Processing

Our systems handle the most challenging of powders commonly used in extremely high-tech environments.

Your Challenges

No matter what the end product, a common need is for safety, containment, efficient mixing and maintaining blend homogeneity.

The very difficult-flowing nature of many ultra-fine metal powders and friction materials makes them problematic to handle.

Our Experience

Our solutions have been very diverse including systems for the formulation of refractory materials, dosing specialty ingredients for revolutionary flooring, as well as handling metal powders.


How we can help

The automatic, dust-free powder handling provided by our IBC system is particularly beneficial where the individual components are potentially dangerous for operators during critical processes.

The unique Cone Valve technology within each IBC can handle practically any type of powder, even metal powders.

Our Approach

Our equipment designs have provided superior powder handling capabilities for our customers, which in turn has given them an edge on Operational Excellence.


Materials Handling Systems for Chemical Powders

This simple system is all you need to get started the right way.

Cone Valve technology has been proven to help control difficult flowing powders and is especially suited to handling plastics and metal powders.

System Modules

The Matcon system is based on using Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) to transport powders between manufacturing steps and as a blending vessel.

Because everything is contained within the IBC, there is no clean-down of the blender between recipe changes, which gives you ultimate flexibility of operation.


No waiting for formulation.

Fill IBCs off-line for improved efficiency.



Mix any recipe, any time.

Eliminate time-consuming cleaning for instant recipe changeovers.



Prevent mix segregation.

Use the IBC Cone Valve for right first time, every time production.



Hygienic design for quick cleaning.

No system down-time with off-line cleaning of IBCs.
