ARECO is a pioneer and leader of disinfection with their biocide spraying technology. Facing the issue of removing formaldehyde, the company developed and patented its own disinfection device in 2006.

Different types of devices have been developed to meet all of your disinfection needs:

-Disinfection of insulators with the OD-IC

-Disinfection rooms with the AR-DM

-Disinfection of ZAC with the AR-D

ARECO Disinfection Systems Are Useful in the Following Areas:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Hospitals
  • Biomedical
  • Animal housing
  • Research & Development
  • Agribusiness
  • Quality Control
  • Production

With Numerous Applications:

  • Multiplex: The fine particles allow the dissemination of biocides through the CTA (air handling unit) in multiple rooms simultaneously. The biocide is generated at the output of the CTA and the ventilation distributes the vapors throughout the room to be treated.


  • Monosalle: ARECO has developed solutions that can handle volumes up to 200 m3.


  • Multiple Products: ARECO can use a multi-product disinfection: H2O2, paracetic biocide cocktail. Each customer may choose the biocide and supplier they prefer. However, if they are unknown to ARECO, they must be approved before use.

ARECO offers the AR-DM, a mobile machine designed for periodic decontamination. The device is placed directly in the needed room and can be moved from room to room to suit your decontamination needs.

Application: disinfection airlock or working room without CTA dedicated, pet store, quality control lab, production room, preparation room, etc.

Disinfection Capacity: up to 200m3

Advantages: stand alone device that generates hot air for the micro condensation of biocide (if H2O2)

The OD-IC is a machine designed especially for the disinfection of small volumes, such as isolators or glove boxes.

Application: isolator, glove box

Disinfection capacity: up to 20 m3

Advantages: stand alone device that generates hot air for the micro condensation of biocide (if H2O2)

ARECO revolutionized the market for bio-decontamination with its AR-D system, a method for disinfecting surfaces by air multiplex (AASD).

Application: animal housing, quality control laboratories, production rooms, preparation rooms

Disinfection capacity: up to 2000m3

Assets: Fixed machine designed for regular decontamination.

The process allows you to:

  • Simultaneously disinfect several rooms via AHU
  • Treat ventilation ducts.
  • Treat terminal HEPA filters and return filters.


ARECO’s disinfection technology is effective against resistant strains and varies for Parvovirus viruses and spores of Bacillus stearothermophilus. The results against each type of infection can be seen below.

With use of 30% H2O2:

  • PLCs are certified 21CFR (FDA)
  • Destruction > log 6 on Bacillus stearothermophilus spores
  • Destruction > log 4 on Canine parvovirus (CPV)
  • Destruction > log 6 on Rhabdoviridae (Rage)
  • Destruction > log 4 on Leptospira (leptospirosis)
  • Destruction > log 5 on Enterococcus hirae
  • Destruction > log 5 on Bacillus subtilis

NF T72-281 May 2009 being validated.

With use of peracetic:

  • Destruction > log 5 on Bactericide activity
  • Destruction > log 4 on Yeasticidal activity
  • Destruction > log 4 on Fingicide activity
  • Destruction > log 3 on Sporicide activity
