MediaDice® – Solid State Drive Disintegrator (MD-SSD/D)

MediaDice® – Solid State Drive Disintegrator (MD-SSD/D)

MediaDice® – Solid State Drive Disintegrator (MD-SSD/D)

The MD-SSD is compact and portable, and designed for facilities such as data centers that need to destroy large volumes of SSDs on site, before they leave their secure facility. Its footprint is about the size of a small floor-standing photo copier/printer.

The SSDs are fed into the machine manually or via an auto loader, and disintegrated by a powerful knife mill that repeatedly chops the media until it is reduced to particles of 2 mm or less. The disintegrated particles are then vacuumed through a metal screen and into a debris collection bin.

The media feeder of the MD-SSD destroyer accepts SSDs without the need to remove plastic or aluminum casings, or use of any special adapters

Media may be fed manually, one-at-a-time into the MD-SSD, or in batches of up to 25 using the optional auto loader.

Product Features

  • Portable and safe for office and data center deployment for sanitization at source
  • Intuitive LCD touch screen interface to control all security access and operational functions
  • Password controlled access to user, administrator and service functions
  • Disintegrates SSDs, SIM cards, CAC ID cards, EMV credit cards, magnetic strip cards, optical media (CD, DVD, BluRay) small circuit boards, memory cards, USB flash drives
  • Disintegrates entire aluminum and plastic encased SSDs without need to remove casings
  • Disintegrates up to 360 SSDs per hour (1 SSD every 10 seconds)
  • SSDs are disintegrated to 2 mm nominal edge length or less
  • Fully automatic, hands-off operation
  • Fully automatic batch loader, or manual single feeder
  • Cycle counter to track volume of media destroyed and maintenance required
  • Automatic jam detection and shutdown
  • Default lock-out security for any unprocessed media in the machine in case or power interruption
  • Safe, secure debris collection into Vacuum with HEPA filter
  • EMC, GMA compliant; EM/RF interference suppression
  • OSHA workplace compliant for noise, electrical, mechanical and airborne particulate hazards

Key Benefits

  • Potentially hazardous debris is collected directly into the vacuum’s debris collection bag until safely disposed.
  • HEPA Filtration system traps any potentially harmful airborne particulates from the disintegration of circuit boards, electronic components, and silicon-based memory and integrated circuit chips.
  • RFI and EMI Suppression to minimize interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity/li>
  • Noise suppression to less than 70db which is much quieter than the 85db threshold acceptable to OSHA for workplace
  • Machine automatically powers off to conserve energy
