The Challenge

Multiple scented air fresheners represents nowadays one of the most demanded solutions developed from traditional single scent electric air fresnehers. Dual (or triple) Scented air fresheners alternate between two complementary scents, so your nose never stops noticing them.

The bottle, actually a double glass jar, includes a plastic ring that helps to keep both elements together. However its major benefit becomes also its major challenge: the 200 bottles per minute line is actually a 400 bottles per minute line. In addition, the distance between bottle neck A and bottle neck B requires a different approach to the traditional concept design of filling and capping stations.

How did Mengibar solve it?

The Monoblock was designed with 4 carousels:

  • Filling Carousel equipped with two sets of 12 filling stations, one per each stream.
  • Wick + Wick Holder inserting carousel equipped with 2 sets of 9 stations with common driving cam to reduce the carousel size. Wick + Wick Hoder assembly is done in an indepent equipment the pices already assembled to the carousel.
  • Screw Capping carousel #1.
  • Screw Capping carousel #2.

This Monoblock is also capable to run with standard single chamber bottles if required.
