PD-5 Solid State Destroyer

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.
