ISECO St-Phal Meal Delivery System Technologies

Understand the technologies used in our systems.



The Thermocontact regenerating system invented and continuously improved by ISECO St-Phal is the only system allowing gentle thermal regeneration for perfect results. At the end of the heating cycle, the heat held by the thermocontact heating shelves ensures food stays at the desired temperature, with great reliability and user safety.


Vitalis STANDFresh Separate Refrigeration

Vitalis 2 & STANDFresh

The Vitalis STANDFresh external refrigeration unit enables all gnerations of Vitalis carts (Vitalis Evo, Vitalis One and Vitalis 2) to be configured without onboard refrigeration, thus eliminating all moving parts relating to refrigeration from the cart itself, and lightening the cart by about 30 kg (66 lbs.). The STANDFresh unit allows for simple docking of Vitalis carts: wheel the cart up to the STANDFresh unit and apply the brake: refrigeration begins immediately. While intended to be stationary while in use, the Stand Fresh unit is on lockable wheels, which allows for simple repositioning and maintenance.

Carbo Fresh Refrigeration

Carbo Fresh
A revolution in food service delivery, using dry ice to cool carts for up to 18 hours - eliminating the need for carts with compressors and refrigeration. The Carbo-Fresh™ system is simple. Liquid CO2 under pressure is injected in to a cassette within the cart, where it cools on expansion and becomes very cold dry ice. This negates the need for compressors in each cart or refrigerated transport, allowing the cart to be refrigerated at the desired temperature regardless of the ambient air-temperature.
Vitalis One Flex Carbo retherm carts stay cold for up to 5 hours without electricity, and Navis Carbo transport carts will be kept cold for up to 18 hours. As the carts temperature is controlled internally, there is no need for refrigerated vehicles to be used for distribution.

ISECOM-ID is a new cart temperature and location monitoring technology, jointly developed by ISECO St-Phal and Biolog-ID. ISECOM-ID allows you to model your hospital / long term care facility's meal schedule in the software, then monitor cold temperatures in each cart on a by-meal or daily basis to ensure full HACCP compliance. Data is a automatically uploaded to the system wirelessly from each cart to Data Access Points, which can be mounted anywhere in your facility or facilities. An optional ISECOM-ID add-on allows you to track where each of your carts are (and have been) in real time.
