Better than HDD Formatting, DOD Wiping and Shredding.
Watch The Hard Disk Crusher In Action.
The Hard Disk Crusher (patent pending) ensures that your confidential information remains confidential by destroying it permanently. After being crushed by the Hard Disk Crusher, the data can never be recovered again.
It is much simpler and faster to use the Hard Disk Crusher than it is to reformat a disk or use a degausser. Furthermore, it has been proven that degaussers don’t always work. New disks have such strong shielding that the magnetic oersteds (Oe) used to destroy the data can only achieve a high enough field intensity to destroy the read-write arm. Therefore, it’s often possible to remove the platters, put them in new disk housing with a new read-write arm, and read the data that you thought you had destroyed. Unfortunately, due to new disk shielding technologies, degaussers have become unreliable.
Though reformatting a disk can wipe out the data, reformatting a disk is very time consuming. It can take hours to reformat one disk. And the system reformatting the disk needs to be operational. The Hard Disk Crusher can destroy a disk and the data on it in just seconds without the need of a peripheral PC or workstation.
With the Hard Disk Crusher you can crush over 60 disks an hour. It drills through the hard disk’s spindles and physically creates ripples in the platters making it impossible to recover the data.
The Hard Disk Crusher is durable and transportable. It uses a standard 110 outlet and can crush a disk in 10 seconds. The destruction chamber is made of case hardened steel. Its unique safety features ensure that the crushing device will not operate unless the safety door is shut. If someone opens the door while a disk is in the process of being crushed, the crusher will shut off.
