Product Description

The PDS-75 is an NSA listed crusher that is designed to destroy hard drives in 8 seconds or less (dependent on operator). The manual PDS-75 is not only manually driven, but it is also simple to use. Just insert the hard drive into the safety slot. Then use the handle to crush the hard drive. During this process the hard drive is bent approximately 90 degrees, which breaks the platters and damages the heads, motor and circuit board. After the process has finished, the hard drive will be ejected into the front debris drawer. The PDS series exudes versatility with low maintenance and easy operation.
NOTE: To comply with recognized standards, including NSA/DoD regulations, a degausser must be used prior to destroying hard drives. In a typical national security operation, a destroyer is used in conjunction with a NSA approved degausser. Using a degausser is the only way to guarantee all data on hard drives and other magnetic media is completely unrecoverable. This is because it is possible to recover data from a mere piece of a hard drive that has not been degaussed. See Proton’s full line of degaussers to save on a degausser and destroyer bundle.

Introducing the Proton Data Security Hard Drive crusher series. Let’s start with the PDS 75 Manual Hard Drive Crushing Unit. The PDS 75 is an NSA listed crusher that is designed to destroy hard drives in eight seconds or less. This is the base product of the PDS hard drive crushing series. It’s not only manually driven but it’s also simple to use. Just insert the hard drive into the safety slot, then use the handle to crush the drive. During this eight second process the hard drive is bent approximately ninety degrees which breaks the platters and damages the head, motor and circuit board. There is even a pullout from the front debris door, which will allow you to clean the unit and dispose of any extra hard drive particles. The PDS 75 along with its companions in the PDS crusher series has several different customization options to fit for any application. Some of the few features this offers are laptop slides, which will allow the destroyer to process two and a half inch laptop drives. The support swaps takes approximately ten seconds and it comes with a holder that allows the operator to steer the supports when not in use. A [Inaudible 1:32] case is also available for the PDS 75 and the other hard drive crusher models. This is a heavy duty pelican case with wheels and custom insert that’s made specifically for the use of the PDS 75 and the other hard drive crushing units.
