Blending

The Industrial Mixer for fast, efficient, agile blending

Reduce cleaning down-time with in-bin blending.

Benefits of Matcon Blending Systems

Mix any recipe any time with a Matcon IBC Industrial Mixer.

Container mixing has long been established as an efficient way of blending powders and granules.

Faster loading & unloading of the IBC Blender, along with no cleaning down-time, eliminates the wasted time associated with traditional static mixers.

Supported Industries

Our Blending equipment is extensively used in the following industries

IBC Industrial Mixer

Allows rapid batch changeovers as the ingredients are fully contained within the IBC – no need to clean down.

The fully contained system protects against any cross-contamination risks.

High OEE rates are possible as IBCs are prepared & discharged separately from the blending process.

The small footprint helps keep clean room costs to a minimum.
