Achieving and maintaining a homogenous blend is vital to getting the right mix of ingredients in the final pack to the customer.
Many blended powder recipes suffer from segregation as particles move around during the transfer process. This results in poor product quality or scrapped batches.
Protect Your Powder Blend With Mass Flow
The Matcon Cone Valve protects blends during the discharge process by creating an annular gap at the outlet of the IBC which enables the material to move under mass flow. This means that all the product in the IBC cross-section moves at the same time. There are no dead zones, no particle rolling can occur, hence no segregation. All materials have a uniform residence time with first in, first out.
All of this means you get a perfectly homogenous mix right to the end of the batch, vital to ensure a top-quality product and fully satisfied customers.
