• DF-4 Heavy-Duty Destruction Device

Fast, Easy, and Clean Media Destruction

The DF-4 Hard Disk Drive Mutilator is a heavy duty hard drive destruction device. Designed for ease-of-use, reliability and safety, the DF-4 provides excellent throughput and efficiency in a hard drive destruction device. Built to last, the DF-4 is an econmical alternative to hard drive shredders (require frequent service calls and replacement parts).

The Destruction Solution
While the NSA/DoD requires magnetic media be degaussed to sanitize information, they also highly recommend hard drives be physically destroyed prior to disposal. Some options for destruction are better than others. Incinerating, for example, releases a harmful debris-filled exhaust into the atmosphere while the shredding of a hard drive is extremely noisy and results in a mess of knife-edged shards. Mutilating, on the other hand, can offer quick, quiet and clean physical destruction.

Quick, Quiet and Clean
Data Security, Inc.'s DF-4 Mutilator will bend, shatter, pierce and crack any hard drive dropped inside, rendering it un-bootable and un-repairable. Working at a rapid speed (1 drive every 2-4 seconds), the visual damage created by the DF-4 will appear as holes punched in the outer case. For added measure, the drive is folded which causes the inner fragile components of the hard drive (like the circuitry, platters, connectors, etc) to become fractured or shattered. The mangled remnants slide out of the DF-4 and drop into a waste bin for easy disposal. It couldn't be faster, easier, or cleaner.

Degauss and Destroy Duo
For 150% compliance with NSA/DoD specifications for erasure of electronic information on hard disk drives, pair the DF-4 Mutilator with the LM-4 or LM-4E Degausser.

PERFORMANCEDisk Destruction
Gravity feeds your magnetic recording media, such as hard disk drives, between two rotating, spring loaded deformation wheels that fold and puncture the hard disk drive case. This mutilating action extends to the center of the platter stack inside the disk drive, completely destroying it. The force shatters disk platters, circuit board chips and connectors. Once mutilated, the media slides out of the DF-4 through an exit chute directly into a disposal bin.
DurableBuilt to last, the powerful deformation wheels resist chipping and dulling. The components of the DF-4 are so durable, it will outlast any hard drive shredder on the market today.
