About us

Matcon Ltd

Matcon has been providing the processing industry with proven Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) technology since 1980, offering efficient and flexible solutions to handle powders, granules and tablets.

We apply our commitment to innovation, continuous product development and thorough consideration of our customers' process needs and objectives, delivering Lean Materials Manufacturing solutions. Our customers’ benefit from:

• Increased productivity • Improved process efficiency • Reduced manufacturing costs.

The Matcon IBC system is designed to the highest hygiene standards, ensuring product integrity and food safety throughout the complete manufacturing process.

The Cone Valve at the heart of the Matcon IBC technology offers automatic and controlled discharge of virtually any powder type. Cohesive materials can be stimulated to flow, whilst very free-flowing powders can be controlled. The Cone Valve has been proven again & again to overcome the traditional powder handling issues of:

• Bridging • Rat-holing • Segregation • Degradation

With a diverse customer portfolio, encompassing both national and multi-national companies, we are recognised as a responsible industry leader with positive corporate citizenship.

Matcon is part of applied solutions provider IDEX Corporation and practices good relationships with its other business units; Fitzpatrick, Quadro and Microfluidics.
