The high-speed, high-powered PD-5 is the fastest and lightest NSA/CSS EPL-listed hard drive destroyer on the market. Designed to meet evolving technology challenges, its amplified crushing power mangles hard drives in under 20 seconds, including the latest helium (He) drives. Designed for use inside data centers and office environments, the energy-efficient PD-5 destroys multiple drives at one time with no messy hydraulics.
Add the optional SSD-1 Solid-State Destroyer and IRONCLAD Destruction Verification System to automatically generate Certificates of Destruction with JPG images of the destroyed media.
Meeting the NSA CSS Evaluated Products List requirement for Hard Disk Drive Destruction Services, the PD-5 operates as an NSA Listed Second Stage Hard Drive Destroyer when paired with Garner's NSA/CSS EPL-listed TS-1XT degausser.

Built-in Destruction Verification
Built-in performance checker: Garner's destroyers have built-in performance verification systems. On-board diagnostics confirm the crush depth of every cycle, ensuring destruction every time. LCD Screen: Displays cycle count and diagnostics. SCAN-1 Media Destruction Report software and scanner (optional): Creates media destruction reports with date, time, user ID, serial number, and verification of each cycle. IRONCLAD Destruction Certificate (optional): Create the ultimate proof-of-destruction reports. Combine the PD-5 hard drive destroyer with Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD® Destruction Verification with JPG Image Capture System. IRONCLAD creates a Certificate of Destruction Report by compiling user, media, and diagnostic data from the PD-5 hard drive destroyer for auditing and record-keeping purposes.
Optional Solid-State Destruction
Add the SSD-1 patented solid state destroyer. Ninety spikes puncture, perforate, waffle, and demolish individual memory chips on solid-state media, thumb drives, mobile phones, and SSHDs permanently preventing data retrieval.
The PD-5 requires no hydraulic fluid to operate, eliminating concerns about messy fluid spills or the need to place the PD-5 on a spill-containment mat. Its rugged, yet lightweight (79 lbs. or 35.9 kg) components and quiet operation make it perfect for data centers and office environments.
Secure and Compliant
The PD-5 will help you satisfy the most stringent government and industry standards, including:
NSA/CSS SDDM 9-12 (HDD destruction)
NIST SP 800-88r1
CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act)
DoD Emergency Destruction Guidelines
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
PCI DSS 3.2 (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
NSA Listed. Laboratory Tested.
Listed on the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List (EPL) for Hard Drive Bending Devices, the PD-5 was laboratory tested to ensure disk destruction to the level required for the U.S. government classified Top-Secret data.
Independently tested and certified to meet CE safety and compatibility standards.
Sustainable Practices. Ecofriendly Products
We are proud to be a manufacturer in California, the state that sets the standard for environmental protection. At every stage of the manufacturing process, from product design through manufacturing and shipping, we apply processes and use materials that minimize environmental impact.
Unlike shredded hard drives, drives crushed by the PD-5 are recyclable.
