Proton PDS-100 Automatic Hard Drive Destroyer

The PDS-100 provides motor-driven, hard drive destruction to NSA standards. Sensors
automatically start the destruction cycle once hard drive is inserted and door is closed.

It also has an optional rear output slide for less operator handling.

    Commercial drives (3.5”) ~4 lbs exertion; Hardened (heavy shielding) drives (3.5”) ~12 lbs. exertion

  • Cycle Time:
    10 seconds or less (60 Hz units); 12 seconds or less (50 Hz units);
    8 seconds or less (Hand Crank)

  • Dimensions:
    11.625”D x 21”H x 7.25”W (29.5cm x 53.3cm x 18.4cm)

  • Weight:
    63 lbs (28.5 kg)

  • Destruction Method:
    Bends/breaks platter, damages heads, motor and circuit board
  • Maintenance:    
    Occasional vacuuming of debris drawer and internal housing

  • Options:    
    rear output slide (for less operator handling), mounting kit, PDS-SSD
    (insert for solid state/flash media destruction) deployment case with wheels,
    barcode scanner with audit-tracking system and more

Features & Benefits:

  • Automatic, sensor-driven cycle provides fast and reliable hard drive destruction in 10 seconds or less
  • NSA/CSS listed; tested and used by NSA and DoD for destroying hard drives
  • Allows compliance with recognized security standards and regulations, including
  • NIST, HIPAA, FACTA, PCI DSS, GLBA, PIPEDA, IRS, GDPR, etc.
  • Compact and rugged design for easy deployment
  • Manual operation option designed for emergency situations (e.g. power not available, quick destruction required)
  • Hard drives are bent approximately 90 degrees, which bends/breaks the platters and damages the heads, motor and circuit board
  • Manufactured in the USA
  • Maintenance free and completely self-contained; no fluids, external components, adjustments or calibration
  • 18-months parts and labor warranty included; lifetime warranty on blade/bender and extended warranty available

WARRANTY: Warranty covers defects in parts and workmanship. Deguassers: All Proton degaussers come with a one-year parts and labor warranty. Destroyers: The PDS-75 and PDS-100 come with an 18-month parts and labor warranty, or 7,000 cycles, whichever comes first. Both the PDS-75 and PDS-100 include a lifetime warranty on the blade/bender. Shredders: The PDS-88 SSD Shredder includes a one-year parts, 90-days labor warranty. The 104 and 105 Multimedia Shredders include two-year parts, 90-day labor warranty.

Extended Warranties are available for those units that list the option above.


The NSA/CSS evaluated PDS-100 Automatic Hard Drive Crusher takes everything you love about the PDS-75 and adds a few upgraded features. The main difference between the two models is the automatic motor driven operation. However, even if power goes out, or no power source is available you can still use the PDS-100 thanks to the built in crank handle, making it ideal for emergency situations. Cycle time of the PDS-100 depends on the unit. Typically, 60  Hz units take 10 seconds or less, 50 Hz units take 12 seconds or less (dependent on the operator), and the hand crank takes 8 seconds or less (dependent on the operator). This crusher is tested and used by NSA and DoD for destroying 1", .65", & 1.65" laptop hard drives.  This crusher measures in at 11.625" D x 7.25" W, 21" H and weighs 63 lbs., it's the perfect size for any workplace. This machine is virtually maintenance free. It requires no external components or messy fluids such as oil. These features make it easily transportable and deployable. 

NOTE: To comply with recognized standards, including NSA/DoD regulations, a degausser must be used prior to destroying hard drives. In a typical national security operation, a destroyer is used in conjunction with a NSA listed degausser. Using a degausser is the only way to guarantee all data on hard drives and other magnetic media is completely unrecoverable. This is because it is possible to recover data from a mere piece of a hard drive that has not been degaussed. See Proton’s full line of degaussers to save on a degausser and destroyer bundle.
