Burlodge is an international company supplying specialised healthcare food systems particularly suited to cook-chill and cook-serve applications for hospitals, retirement villages and hostels, nursing homes, meals on wheels organisations, day care centres, large central cook chill kitchens and prisons.
With the years of experience working to and meeting international quality standards such as ISO 9000, wherever meal delivery is the logistics requirements to be addressed, we work to assist to provide an intergrated solution tailored to each specific needs and ensures that we provide products and services that maximise customer satisfaction.
BPodThe BPod is an unique nesting system using a Base Station that holds the mechanics and electrical to provide consistent convection heating and cooling while the Pod carries the individualised trays from production through regeneration and then to the consumer. The Pod rolls and nests into the embrace of the Base Station and through unique vertical airflow dynamics the Base Station exchanges its heating and cooling to the foods on trays inside the Pod below.
The Base Station supplies unique vertical thermo-convection forced air ventilation for both the hot and cold section driven by a high velocity motor to ensure proper and even air temperature throughout the chamber of the Pod. Convection heating allows for greater menu variety and supports all types of dishware such as china and reusable plastics, high heat single use plastics and paper, as well as aluminium foil.
The Pod is a trayed meal transporter is durable and lightweight - constructed from a combination of 304 stainless steel and aluminium. It incorporates a high density insulation, enclosed in stainless steel side panels and doors enhance the temperature retention rating of the tray carrier. The Pod can be fitted with 20 or 24 tray slots (Pod Short) or it can have tray slides to hold 26 or 30 trays (Pod Tall).
Novaflex IIThe most advanced single tray meal distribution system available today, the Novaflex meets today's requirements for an efficient, well-constructed meal distribution system, which also allows for personalisation of individual patient trays. Suitable for both traditional cook-serve systems, cook-chill and food outsourcing methods of meal tray preparation.
With an electronic control panel, which is easy to use and operate, meal trays within the Novaflex are loaded into a fixed insulated divider wall, which separates the hot and cold sides of the cart. The unique Novaflex single tray system allows for varying space on the hot and cold sides of the tray, based on individual patient choices. This allows for maximum flexibility in menu choices and types of dishware.
RTS – Ready To ServeActive Temperature Maintenance to ensure hot foods are served hot and cold foods are served cold with an advanced meal delivery system for rethermalisation of trayed meals. The system is ideal for units where a majority of patients or residents require assistance with feeding and the total mealtime becomes extended as a result.
The ideology of providing patients the best possible food temperatures at the point of service, meal trays are loaded into the pre-heated and pre-chilled RTS cart which incorporates a fixed divider wall to separate the hot and cold foods on the tray. Once the cart is loaded with the trays needed for that patient unit, the cart is plugged into a single phased outlet for a heat boosting cycle while cold items are kept refrigerated at the same time. The heating and cooling continues while individual trays are taken out and served, thus maintaining the temperatures of all the remaining trays.
Multigen & MinigenDesigned as a multi-portion point of service trolley, for cook-serve, cook-chill and cook- freeze food service applications, the Multigen is a two compartment unit while the Minigen is a single compartment unit – both units has either an ambient compartment or an oven chamber.
With a dual oven technology which substantially improves food quality, temperature and presentation, it also allows reduced energy consumption as heating is a forced air convection for rethermalisation to allow the heating of products with different densities and textures to be achieved over the same time. In addition, the dual oven compartment can be varied in size to meet different meal configurations.
