HDD Drive Demolisher V2 Press Release

Aleratec Releases the HDD Drive Demolisher V2™ for the Safe Destruction of 3.5” or 2.5” Hard Disk Drives

Aleratec’s patent-pending HDD Drive Demolisher V2™ annihilates up to two 3.5” or 2.5” hard disk drives at a time and includes a manually-operated hydraulic pump and safety chamber.

CHATSWORTH, CA – May 22, 2018 – Aleratec Inc., the award-winning designer, developer and manufacturer of professional-grade data duplicators and sanitizers, introduces the next generation of their popular hard drive crusher, the HDD Drive Demolisher V2™.

Designed for government agencies and organizations with data breach concerns, this powerful and patent-pending hard disk drive crusher annihilates up to two 3.5” or 2.5” hard disk drives at a time, rendering data unreadable. The hydraulic pump requires no electricity yet provides enough force to break the chassis and mutilate the magnetic platters of hard drives with very little muscle power required. Users simply insert up to two hard drives into the HDD Drive Demolisher V2’s chamber and use the hydraulically-operated handle to engage a powerful steel crushing anvil.

“Hard disk drives often contain classified and confidential information that can wind up in the wrong hands and put companies and government agencies at risk,” notes Perry Solomon, Aleratec President and CEO. “Our next generation of the HDD Demolisher is compact and affordable, yet offers features that will give you peace of mind that sensitive data will not be exposed.”

For best results Aleratec recommends sanitizing your hard disk drives using an Aleratec HDD Duplicator/Sanitizer prior to physically destroying your hard disk drives using an Aleratec HDD Drive Demolisher.

Unlike conventional hard drive disk crushers that use a single puncture mechanism, Aleratec’s HDD Drive Demolisher V2™ includes a solid steel attachment to mangle the chassis and deform the platter. This safe and cost-effective process for destroying hard disk drives takes less than one minute. No electrical power or physical strength is required, and features include:

  • Safety-reinforced chamber for easy removal of destroyed hard drives and debris
  • Full safety enclosure to prevent operation when the door is open
  • Compact design that fits on a table or desk

  • When deployed as part of a comprehensive security strategy, Aleratec’s HDD Drive Demolisher V2™ helps to protect confidential information and ensure that hard drives are unusable.
