Data Security DX-8
  • Model: DX-8


Listed in the National Security Agency (NSA)/CSS Evaluated Products List for Hard Drive Destruction, the DX-8 meets DoD compliance guidelines for the physical damage of hard disk drive media* as well as emergency destruction procedures. Designed for simple, quiet and reliable operation, the DX-8 will thoroughly damage any hard drive. Within seconds, a hard drive is crushed in a waffle-like pattern that breaks and shatters media platters inside the drive. The mangled remnants drop into your waste bin for easy recycling and disposal. It is fast, easy, quiet, safe, and clean. *The DX-8 is not recommended for tape media. HEAVY-


The DX-8 is built to last with crushing components that resist chipping and dulling. Unlike traditional hard drive shredders, there are no parts to sharpen, oil or constantly replace. This provides uninterrupted operation, reducing downtime and maintenance costs. The DX-8 includes an easy to use jam reverse mode for continuous use.


The destruction mechanism of the DX-8 is housed deep inside the machine, safely protecting the operator from harm at all times. In the event of an emergency, a manual stop button halts the operation of the machine.


NSA/DoD magnetic media sanitization regulations require the use of an approved degausser, at minimum. In addition, they recommend degaussing be followed by physical damage prior to disposal. For complete compliance, pair the DX-8 with the LM-1 or LM-1C degausser for a seamless degauss and destroy the system.
