ASD : Airborne Surface Disinfection
This disinfection method is part of a complete hygiene process which starts with a cleaning operation and which is finalized with a disinfection operation. ASD is a technique that consists in converting the disinfectant under a liquid form into a fog. This fog fulfills the space in which the disinfectant is distributed. This form permits an homogeneous repartition of the disinfectant everywhere in the space (including areas not available for manual disinfections). This kind of disinfection is performed with the use of specific machines which are ensuring the perfect reproduction of the results (in contrary to manual processes). This method optimizes the consumption of disinfectant and preserves the safety of people in charge of disinfecting the spaces.
The MicroDrop Technology developed by Devea guaranties a perfect repartition of the fog in the room and so the results of the disinfection. In an ASD process, one qualified and specific machine must be used with one specific and dedicated disinfectant to ensure the results : we are talking about a device – disinfectant pair.
The EN standard 17272 2020 version defines what could be considered as an effective process of ASB taking into consideration the destruction results on bacteria (log 5), mold (Log 4), yeasts (log 4), bacterial spores (Log 3), viruses (Log4). The pair Phileas & O2Safe, obtained the market authorization N° FR-2019-0071délivred by the ANSES with a really low dosage of 12 ml / m3. The tests performed in laboratories on Devea solutions of disinfection (Phileas – O2Safe) were successful and demonstrate the efficiency of the technology and of the biocide.
Who are we?
Devea was created in 2009 and its activity is fully dedicated to Airborne Surface Disinfection. Thanks to its long experience in disinfection matters, Devea team developed an innovative technology (the MicroDrop Technology) which obtained excellent results that meets the highest standards of quality in terms of disinfection.
This technology equipped all Phileas machines and is based on the principle of centrifugation for the production of a very fine fog (made of really small droplets; only a few microns) which fulfills in an homogeneous way the disinfected room. As Devea is particularly cautious with the environment and with the human health, its disinfectants proposed with the Phileas solutions leave no residue after the disinfection.
Because Devea is proud of its French nationality, Phileas systems are fully made in France, near Nantes. The Company is mobilizing a unique know-how that is positioning itself among the major actors of the ASD industry.
After a PDH in Pharmacy completed by additional education at the INSEAD, Pierre spent all its carrier in commercial and marketing functions in France and in different countries. He worked for pharmaceutical companies and also for consumer goods groups : “the best strategic vision without any rigorous execution will fail; for that, successes are collective and the difference comes from the team”
After studying in a business school and obtaining the CPA qualification, Romain worked in different sectors (audit, retail, hospitality, consumer goods). He was responsible for different activities and services, especially on back-office topics.
Jean-Marc founded Devea in 2009. He is now working as advisor for the new managers of the company. His wish of transmitting his knowledge and experience is an important part of his personal project. His expertise on ASD gives our partners all the comfort and credibility in their accompaniment.
Our super assistant. Although she speaks English and French fluently, she loves to speak Spanish. She is responsible for sales administration and is in constant contact with our clients. Her little extra? Ultra-responsiveness and a smile.
After Sales Service Manager
Isabelle is our after sales service manager. She is in frequent contact with our customers and our distributors to discuss their suggestions and set them in action. She carries out all the effectiveness testing.
Pascal sets up all of our devices. Because he knows every model like the back of his screwdriver, he runs various training workshops for our customers and our distributors in English and French.
Our distribution network
We are proud to export the Phileas system worldwide. Devea’s strong focus helps simplify maintenance operations as much as possible. It is our ability to design products and processes related to the field that engages our foreign partners.
We are present on all continents through a network of distributors specialised in ASD.
