The ideal solution for wiping large numbers of hard drives and magnetic storage media. Provides world-class magnetic field generation to completely erase the contents of magnetic media in an instant. All models are capable of erasing data from perpendicular magnetic recording hard disks.

What is a Degausser?

The HDD inside a computer records data magnetically on a disk called a platter. A degausser is a device that applies a strong magnetic force to the magnetic recording surface to completely destroy all recorded data. A degausser will effectively erase data not only from HDDs, but from any media using magnetic recording, including LTO, DLT, AIT, CMT, DDS/DAT, VHS and FDs.

Reasons for Choosing a Degausser

All companies, government agencies and military bases handle confidential data, necessitating the most reliable method of disposing of recording media. How should used computers, laptops, tapes and other magnetic recording media be disposed of?

  • HDDs are sturdily designed to facilitate long-term storage. It is very hard to eliminate data from an HDD.
  • Drilling holes into an HDD or destroying it with a hammer merely makes it harder to extract data. It does not destroy the data itself. Data recovery specialists like us can extract data directly even if the media cannot be inserted into a PC or reader.
  • Using software to overwrite data does not erase data on damaged sectors of HDDs. Overwriting with software is also time-consuming.
  • Data recovery professionals like us can recover data even from damaged recording media.

But even a data recovery specialist cannot recover data that has been destroyed with a degausser. Degaussing enables you to completely destroy data permanently in just 0.1 second.
