Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs)


The IBC container is at the centre of the Matcon powder handling system. Designed to be filled and emptied quickly, with washing off-line, the IBC container enables all the manufacturing processes to happen simultaneously for optimum production efficiency. With the unique Matcon Cone Valve technology inside each one, our IBCs offer controlled discharge and protection against product segregation.




Matcon IBCs



Designed for:

  • Transporting material safely between the manufacturing process steps without the risk of contamination entering the IBC container.
  • Dust-free transfer of product from the IBC container to the downstream process equipment.
  • Protecting mixed blends against product segregation.
  • Easy handling as the IBC container can be moved by a variety of handling trucks, forklifts or AGVs.



The Matcon IBC container is available in a range of sizes from 500L to 3500L, but smaller or larger sizes are available on request. In addition to the ‘S Series’ stainless steel IBCs, we also supply a range of polyethylene IBCs. If you would like further information on this range, please do contact us.


For pilot scale production why not use the SmartDrum IBC container system which offers all the benefits of the larger IBCs but for volumes of 150L-450L.



There are various ancillary pieces of equipment that are used alongside the Matcon Product modules and Matcon IBCs. Click here to see these IBC Components.
