Original Press Release:

New Cone Valve Upgrade Available for IBC Systems

ROCK HILL, SC--ISL Cone Valve Technology, a manufacturer of powder handling equipment, introduces a new cone valve upgrade solution that quickly replaces older cone valve technology in existing facilities.

Developed over the past twenty years, cone valve technology combines the bin activator principle with dosing and a fail-safe shut off valve. The valve is positioned at the bottom of a Rigid Intermediate Bulk Container (IBC) and is actuated to promote product flow.

These designs were complex and expensive. They can be difficult to clean and maintain due to the presence of the working mechanisms within the product. Typically, such systems can have upwards of 100 components, most of them immersed in the product, creating possible product contamination.

Other problems include product spillage during transport due to the internal cone shifting while in transit.


ISL's Cone Valve Technology uses a self regulating lifting tube that is external to the process, eliminating any possibility of contamination. The upgrade unit is designed to fit Matcon or other cone valves.

The dust tight seal on the discharge station isolates the operator and environment from process contamination and is maintained during the IBC loading or unloading. This dust tight seal remains, even during rough transit of the IBC and guarantees total containment.

Compared to older technology, ISL's Cone Valve Upgrade is very easy to clean and requires very little maintenance. Since the unit consists of only six parts, maintenance personnel can strip and clean the whole assembly in a fraction of the time versus older technology.


The upgrade is designed to fit Matcon or other cone valve manufacturers systems already in use. ISL's Cone Valve Upgrade is cost efficient and includes additional features not found on competitive units like flow promotion aids and product metering controls. The upgrade involves only a few hours and can be handled by a two person team.
