The Proton PPD-1 Hard Disk Drive Destroyer

Compact and rugged design is portable and easily deployable. Less than 8 second cycle time provides fast, safe and reliable hard drive destruction. Specifically designed for emergency situations where power may not be available and quick destruction is required. Provides a "green" energy saving solution for hard drive destruction. Hard drives are bent approximately 90 degrees which bends/ breaks the platters and damages the heads, motor and circuit board. Maintenance free and completely self-contained. There are no messy fluids or external components to deal with and no adjustments or calibration necessary. Tested and used by NSA and DOD for destroying hard drives.


The T-1.5 is fully automatic and has a cycle time of less than 5 seconds, making it the fastest electromagnetic pulse degausser available. Operation is simple, just insert media into the drawer and push the start button. Internal software acts as a built in safeguard and assures the unit is operating at peak performance for each cycle. The T-1.5 is extremely compact and portable which allows it to fit easily into existing operations and be transported when necessary.


  • Destruction of confidential and sensitive data in accordance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
  • Meets US Department of Defense (DoD) and Defense Security Services (DSS) requirements for sanitizing unclassified data.
  • Provides compliance under regulations such as HIPAA, PCI DSS, GLBA, FACTA, etc.
