PD-5 Solid State Destroyer


PD-5 Crushing 2HD copy

The PD-5 Data Destroyer is capable of destroying hard drives as well as solid state media making it arguably the most versatile device of it’s kind. Features include an LCD display, a 9 second cycle for two standard hard drives and an optional SSD/Flash Media destruction insert (SSD-1). At 72 pounds, the PD-5’s all aluminum chassis, motor and main components make it the lightest hard drive destroyer available as well as completely recyclable.

The PD-5 has been engineered with an automatic High-Torque Sensor that allows the crushing wedge to move at high speed to the media and then optimize speed for maximum crushing power. The PD-5 automatically destroys all formats and sizes of hard drives including Network SCSI and IDE Drives up to 1.66″ in height. The PD-5 doesn’t rely on software, therefore it will destroy, in just 9 seconds, all working and non-working hard drives put in the chamber. A simple push of a button will ensure complete hard drive destruction.

SSD

The SSD-1 (patent pending), is an optional accessory that allows the PD-5 to sanitize solid state media such as SSD, Flash, Compact Flash, USB drives and controller boards for hybrid HDD’s. The SSD-1 simply slides into the PD-5 and the solid state media is then inserted between the two crushing plates. Once the destruction cycle is initiated, over 90 pins pierce the solid state media from top and bottom causing both perforation and waffling which destroy the individual memory chips.
