PD-5 Destroyer


The high-speed, high-powered, high-volume, NSA/CSS EPL-listed PD-5 hard drive destroyer now has the ability to communicate with our IRONCLAD Erasure Verification System verifying and documenting the crush depth of the destruction wedge. Enhance the PD-5’s destruction versatility by adding our patented SSD-1 solid-state destroyer. The SSD-1 pierces memory chips and waffles solid-state media, flash drives, USB thumb drives, and SSHD controller boards.
