Manufacturing Equipment for Nutraceuticals Products

We provide manufacturers of nutraceuticals, functional foods and nutritional supplements with the equipment they need to improve flexibility and production capacity. Increasing operational effectiveness.

Powder Handling Systems

for Nutraceuticals manufacturers

An IBC System with effective powder mixing equipment will help you increase efficiency from the moment you get started. As each of the key processing steps are decoupled, your manufacturing process becomes more flexible, allowing you to produce a range of recipes using ingredients such as protein powders, vitamins and minerals.



How we help manufacturers of nutraceuticals.

Your Challenges

Mixing challenges for nutraceuticals manufacturers

An increase in diverse recipes and product portfolios means more changeovers during a shift. This significantly impacts on active production time.

Many powders used in nutraceuticals products are notoriously difficult to handle and can be sticky and poor flowing. Some of these powders have a tendency to segregate during discharge.

More and more, recipes need to be allergen free or diet specific, which will result in extra time time being spent carrying out 
thorough clean-downs between recipe batches.

How we can help

Improve nutraceuticals manufacturers productivity

Matcon IBC Systems are designed to optimize your production line and make it more flexible. By employing parallel processing, the manufacturing process steps (formulation, mixing, packing and cleaning) are decoupled, with each process step taking place independently.

The act of separating these manufacturing stages creates the potential for multiple processes to take place simultaneously, allowing manufacturers to produce more than one batch or different recipe batches at any given time, hence becoming more efficient. 

Our unique Cone Valve Technology located within each IBC protects your blended powders during the discharge process, maintaining their integrity and quality.

IBC blending means that you spend less time cleaning and significantly reduce the risk of cross-contamination across your product lines as all powders are kept within the IBC.

Our Experience

Working with nutraceuticals manufacturers

The Matcon team have experience of working across the globe with leading manufacturers of nutraceuticals, functional foods and nutritional health supplements.

We’re experts on designing systems that allow manufacturers to grow by increasing production output and enabling them to widen their product portfolio without the risk of cross-contamination across batches.

So how do we do this?

Our Approach

Working with nutraceuticals manufacturers

It is vital to use manufacturing equipment that removes the risk of any cross-contamination, without losing significant amounts of production time.

We deliver a wide range of IBC powder handling systems and blending equipment, from the simple start-up to the more complex automated, multi-mixer, multiple packing line configurations.

Central to our IBC technology is the Cone Valve, offering automatic and controlled discharge of virtually any powder type. Cohesive materials are stimulated to flow, whilst free-flowing powders are controlled. Our Cone Valve has continually proven to overcome the traditional powder handling issues of bridging, rat-holing, segregation and degradation.

Our scalable modular design is perfect to expand upon as you innovate and grow your product portfolios and increase throughput to develop your business.


Manufacturing System Modules

A Matcon powder handling system is built around Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs). These become the vessels in which your powders are transported between manufacturing steps. The IBC also becomes the blending vessel, used within the tumble blender.

As all ingredients are contained within the IBC, it means that your cleaning requirements are greatly reduced between recipe changes. This saves you time, which means more output.


Formulate your recipe offline

Fill the IBCs whilst other processes are taking place.



Mix any recipe, any time.

Reduce the time it takes to clean to enable instant recipe changeovers.



Stop powder mix segregation.

The Cone Valve ensures that your mix is discharged correctly.



Effective cleaning options.

IBCs are cleaned offline resulting in no system down-time.
