Powder handling product for Matcon Manual Cone Valve (MCV) range
Matcon has launched a new product to its Manual Cone Valve (MCV) range. The device has been designed specifically to assist companies who experience powder handling problems with butterfly valve or slide valve IBCs in the food, beverage and chemical sectors.
The manually operated Cone Valve promotes mass-flow discharge of free-flowing powders, preventing segregation of powder mixes and ensuring product quality.
The unit comprises a valve body with a single-sided arm that supports a cone valve which is raised using a lever handle. The lever can be locked in the open or closed positions, or any intermediate position via a locking handle, depending on the desired flow rate of powder discharge.
It is tested and proven as an effective butterfly valve alternative, overcoming the issues of core flow and particle rolling that can be experienced with standard butterfly valves.
The Manual Cone Valve can be easily retrofitted to any existing flanged IBC outlet, providing a cost-effective way of upgrading a user’s IBC fleet with Cone Valve technology.
Each unit has a nominal internal diameter of 250 mm and is designed to fit a vessel or process with the same outlet size for discharging free-flowing bulk material.
A typical example of discharge time achieved when discharging 1000 kg of salt from a 1000 L IBC is only 90 s.
The Classic Matcon IBC System is suitable for applications involving sticky, cohesive powders or where automation is required.
