Beverages & Powder Drink Mixes Manufacturing Equipment

Frequent recipe changes can result in high manufacturing costs & excessive inventory if not carefully managed.

Your Challenges

Increasingly large portfolios mean many changeovers which significantly impacts on production time.

Segregation of the mix is a risk, particularly with 3in1 coffees, due to the different particle characteristics.

Problems with dust create cross-contamination risks.

Our Experience

We have supplied efficient production systems to numerous companies around the world making 3in1 coffee and instant beverage mixes.

We’ve design powder handling systems from simple start-up to more complex multiple line configurations.


How we can help

The unique Cone Valve in each IBC protects the blend during transfer, which produces a great quality product every time and satisfied customers.

The system remains closed at all times, offering dust containment for a cleaner environment and operator safety and no risk of cross-contamination.

Our Approach

We are able to offer engineering support where needed to conceptualise the building layout and design ergonomic flow of product around the plant.

The modular design of the system is perfect to expand upon as you innovate & grow.

Materials Handling Equipment 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 the 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.
