Series 2 hard drive shredders will shred most standard rotary hard drives up to 1″ thick, as well as backup tapes, cell phones, DVDs, and assorted e-scrap. Enterprise hard drives take at least twice as long to shred as standard drives, on which we base our throughput.
Series 2 hard drive shredders consist of two models that are available in our recommended 1.5″ shred width. The AMS-1000HD is also available in 3/4″ and 1″ shred widths. All Series 2 hard drive shredders are manufactured in the U.S. and can be stationary or placed in trucks for mobile hard drive shredders. They are slow-speed, high torque dual shaft shredders made from solid steel. All models are industrial shredders that require three-phase power.
Series 2 hard drive shredders include an output conveyor that can be substituted for an infeed conveyor on the 10 HP stand model, which has a drop-down discharge. The AMS-1000HD was designed to bridge the gap between Series 2 and Series 3 hard drive shredders. It has a more robust drive train, bigger bearings, and larger diameter shafts and cutters. It is our response to the continued advancement of denser hard drives.
Series 2 HDD-SSD combo shredders are available in the same horsepower models. Click on the bold print if you want to shred rotary hard drives and solid-state drives in one shredder.
