Ready To Serve Unit - Spotlight
This Month’s Spotlight is featuring the new Ready To Serve or RTS Unit from Burlodge. The Burlodge Company has been around for the last 20 years and has offices in Canada, USA, England, Belgium, Italy and a very good network of distributors in other parts of the world. The company is renowned for its manufacturing in Italy and its exceptional quality and commitment to client care post sale and start up. They produce excellent retherm equipment for tray and bulk needs. The RTS is no different. It is manufactured with care and is a state of the art system.

The RTS is not a retherm system really but rather a temperature maintenance meal delivery system. So, in reality the retherm is done before it goes into the RTS using bulk retherm methods such as convection ovens and or steamers. From a conventional hot beltline, the trays or bulk pans are then assembled and placed inside the RTS which in turn keeps the hot food hot. It has a section that keeps cold foods cold as well. That is the unique thing about the RTS….the cold temperature maintenance ability.

What I mean here is , if you look at conventional hot beltlines, you either put the foods together on a tray and use pellets or insulated tray compartments or you put bulk foods in a hot holding cabinet for transport to patient wards. Is there really a system out there that also keeps cold foods cold in bulk or on a tray while you hold the meals before delivery to the bedside ?....well, the RTS is here.

The construction of the unit is Burlodge quality , that is very evident. It is light weight and very easy t o move around on floors and even carpet. Burlodge has designed the RTS with flexibility in mind. The unit can be converted on the fly from a tray cart to a bulk holding cart or even to a continental breakfast cart that holds ½ size trays effectively doubling the capacity of the tray cart. It has a unique and powerful control pad and display with optional HACCP monitoring controls. The programming is easy and the unit takes up very little floor space.

I saw the cart myself and I have to say that it is a really neat and useful device that if taken care of, will last the test of time. It has applications for all sorts of things from healthcare, to daycare, to even hotels and catering. The cart comes in three colors and is easy on the capital planning department too. If you get a chance you should check this newest cart on the market. Trust Burlodge to come out with yet another innovative method of food meal delivery. Check out their website to see the RTS and learn more.
