This coming weekend is Easter Weekend. Good Friday is the day when Jesus was crucified, and then on Easter Sunday is when he was resurrected. For many, it is a religious weekend, but since the turn of the century, it has become a commercialised event for companies to try and sell as many Easter eggs as they can.
Through the years, the expectations for Easter eggs have risen. Originally, they just started out as standard chocolate eggs, but now companies such as Cadbury and Hotel Chocolat are bringing out weird and wacky flavours. Cadburys are said to be the biggest winners of the Easter weekend as they have more than 50% share of the market and one in every three eggs purchased is made in the Cadbury’s chocolate factory. In 2021, the BBC reported that Easter egg sales climbed up to nearly £48 million, which was an increase of 50% to £153 million compared to 2020 figures.
In the past, EWFM has supplied companies with Engineered Delivery Nozzles which have been used to fill containers with chocolate!
We only offer one nozzle designed for filling containers, casks, and IBC’s, but it comes in two variations. You can have the nozzle with either automatic or manual operation. The manual operation is as simple as pushing in a lever on the nozzle and it will start to fill the container. Once full, you simply release the lever, and it will stop. The automatic nozzle works similarly to a petrol pump nozzle. To use, you simply pull the trigger to open the valve and then, as the liquid reaches the top of the container, the nozzle senses back pressure and shuts off automatically.
With sizes ranging from 0.5″ to 2″, our nozzles can be used in a variety of applications such as food and beverage, chemicals, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. Additionally, you can add extras to the nozzle, including vapour recovery and extended lances.
If you have any questions or queries about our Engineered Delivery Nozzles or any of our products, then please get in touch with our sales team. The offices will be closed on Friday, April 15th, 2022, and Monday, April 18th, 2022, but we will ensure that your queries will be dealt with immediately.
The EWFM team wish everyone who celebrates an egg-stra special Easter weekend!
