HD-3WXL Degausser

10,000 Gauss ~6 Seconds

The HD-3WXL high-volume slide degausser delivers a wish list of Garner exclusive features. Compact and automatic, the HD-3WXL, with 10,000 Gauss, 6 second charge time, and an oversized media slot, will completely and permanently erases all data contained on high-coercivity (magnetic) hard drives and tape media up to 1.7” in height. HD-3WXL includes a SCAN-1 scanner and software package to create an audit-worthy media destruction report as you degauss.;

HD-3WXL|10,000 Gauss ~6 Seconds



Oversized media slot

Small Footprint. Big Advantages.


With its continuous-duty rating, the HD-3WXL can erase up to 3600 drives or tapes per hour (7,200 a day) with no cool down needed.


Independently certified to meet both CE safety and compatibility standards worldwide. Built-in safeguards check the stored power and display the field strength during each erase cycle, ensuring complete erasure.

Report Capable

Included is our SCAN-1 scanner and destruction report software package to scan hard drive serial numbers to create a media destruction report during the degaussing process. IRONCLAD compatible.


Erases all hard drive and tape formats that fit into the 1.7 x 4.5 x 5.9 in. media slot.


The degauss cycle starts as soon as you insert the media into the slot. Once erasure is successfully completed and verified by internal safeguards, the HD-3WXL releases the media down the exit slide.


Plugs into standard wall outlets in offices around the world.


Takes up less than a square foot of floor space and weighs just 66 lbs.


Offers an ideal, low-noise solution for office environments.


Enables you to meet government mandates that require complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use (tape only) or disposal.

Permanent Erasure Means Data Is Gone Forever

Because the HD-3WXL provides high-powered magnetic erasure, degaussed data can never be recovered. Magnetic erasure also means there’s no software to buy, update, or upgrade. And the HD-3WXL technology used to erase magnetic hard drives and tape media will never become obsolete due to software or driver modifications.

Degauss vs. Overwrite

The HD-3WXL produces an erasing field many times stronger than the fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. This achieves a deeper and more efficient erasure than software-based wiping programs. Unlike overwriting, the HD-3WXL generates an erase field that encompasses the entire hard drive, leaving no area unchanged. Since the HD-3WXL does not rely on software and requires no physical connection to the hard drive, such as a cable, it completely and permanently erases working and nonworking hard drives, regardless of the operating system or interface.

Secure and Compliant

The HD-3WXL will assist you in satisfying government and industry data standards, including:

  • California Senate Bill 1386
  • DOD Up to Secret Classification
  • GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • IRS 1075
  • NIST SP 800-88r1
  • PCI DSS 3.2 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)


Erasure-Cerification Tests

Hard drives erased with the HD-3WXL have been tested and verified by hard drive manufacturers, information recovery companies, and private forensic laboratories, which independently confirmed that no data was recoverable.

International Standards

The HD-3WXLE is independently tested and certified to meet CE safety and compatibility standards worldwide.
