Description Technical Specs

PD-5 Physical Hard Drive Destroyer

The PD-5 Data Destroyer has 50% more crushing power than the PD-4, an LCD display, a 9 second cycle for two standard hard drives and an optional SSD/Flash Media destruction insert (SSD-1), the PD-5 is the most feature packed hard drive destroyer on the market. At 72 pounds, the PD-5s all aluminum chassis, motor and main components make it the lightest hard drive destroyer available as well as completely recyclable.


  • Fastest NSA/CSS 9-12 compliant HDD destroyer on the market
  • Destroys SSD's, Flash and USB thumb drives*
  • 32 Character LCD display with counter
  • Crushes multiple drives at a time
  • Quiet, office friendly design
  • No Hydraulics
  • Optional MIL-SPEC case
  • All aluminum chassis and main components
  • With optional SSD-1

PD-5 Operation: The new PD-5 has a very unique operation with its 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.

Clean: Uses no hydraulics, eliminating concerns about messy hydraulic fluid spills and the need for a spill containment mat.

Incredibly Fast: high-torque sensing technology allows the crushing wedge to zoom quickly to locate the media then increases torque to maximize crushing power, delivering total destruction in 18 seconds or less. It's fast enough to meet the Department of Defence emergency-destruction guidelines and requires no cool down between cycles.

Easy to use: Push-button operation, auto sensing of media type, and LCD screen keep you informed at each step of the destruction process. Simply place the media into the crush chamber, close the door, press the button, and wait eighteen seconds or less to retrieve the destroyed media.

Versatile: Requires no adapters to destroy hard drives up to 4.5 inches (113 mm) wide by 6.5 inches (165 mm) deep by 2 inches (50 mm) high, including network SCSI and IDE drives. Allows you to specify voltage options when ordering for international locations. The optional SSD-1 expands your capabilities to include solid state drives and flash media..

Software independent: Because the PD-5 doesnt rely on software, it can destroy any working or nonworking laptop, desktop, or network hard drive. The optional SSD-1 requires no software, as well, which allows it to destroy working and nonworking SSD, flash media, and SSHD controller boards. Uses no hydraulics, eliminating concerns about messy hydraulic fluid spills and the need for a spill containment mat.

Destroying Solid State Media with the PD-5 & the Optional SSD-1:

The PD-5 combined with the optional SSD-1 Solid State Destroyer sanitizes solid state media such as SSD, Flash, Compact Flash, USB drives and controller boards for hybrid HDD's. Over 90 pins pierce the solid state media from top and bottom causing both perforation and waffling which destroy the individual memory chips.

Meet Government Mandates:
The PD-5 will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal including:

  • NSA/CSS SDDM 9-12
  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-36
  • NIST SP 800-88
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • California Senate Bill 1386
