Series 3 HDD-SSD shredders are slow-speed, high torque dual shaft shredders that are manufactured in the U.S. They include a dual-head cutting chamber that will shred solid-state drives on one side and rotary hard drives on the other. Each side has its own label, infeed chute, and shred width. The 20″ wide infeed can be divided into two 10″ widths or 14″ and 6″ widths, approximately.
Series 3 HDD-SSD shredders will shred most standard SSDs, cell phones, memory cards, thumb drives, and other solid-state devices to 3/8″ wide particles. This small shred size is required to destroy all of the memory chips that solid-state products use to store data. Any batteries must be removed prior to shredding.
As data bearing devices continue to get smaller, we found that some can pass through the cutters with minimal to no damage if fed improperly. Therefore, we developed precision clearance cutterheads that ensure the destruction of M.2-SSDs and other small media. These cutterheads are available on all new HDD-SSD shredders as an upgrade. A retrofit upgrade package is also available on any model purchased after 2018.
Series 3 HDD-SSD shredders will shred most standard hard disk drives in addition to backup tapes, DVDs, cell phones, and assorted small e-scrap to 1.5″, 1″, or 3/4″ wide particles. Enterprise hard drives take at least twice as long to shred as standard drives, on which we base our throughput. Series 3 HD-SSD shredders have optional features that include an air filtration system, fork pockets, a hard drive counter, stainless-steel combers, and a viewing window. They can be stationary or placed in trucks for mobile hard drive shredding.
Our Data Capture System is optional, and was designed to help electronic recyclers meet R2v3 requirements. It allows the user to photograph the drive, which identifies and captures the barcodes, and then videotape the shredding process. Each step in the data destruction and cataloging process is precisely time-stamped. The system’s flexibility allows users to decide whether to utilize the Data Capture System in full, in part, or bypass it entirely.
Series 3 hard drive shredders and Series 3 SSD shredders are both available in the same horsepower models. Click on the bold print if you only want to shred rotary hard drives or only shred solid-state drives.
