The Crunch 250 is a powerful and fast data destroyer that crushes a wide range of storage devices. Simple and safe to operate, destruction of media is guaranteed. Its unique log system records all destruction information giving hard copy evidence for audit purposes. The optional SSD adapter also enables individual memory chips to be destroyed.


Unlike our degaussers which erase data through powerful magnetic fields, the Crunch 250 destroys the drives and memory chips rendering them unusable. For companies requiring the utmost security, the Crunch 250 provides a perfect accompaniment to a degausser. It is also an ideal solution for companies who recycle used media storage devices.


The Erasure Log Software records all operating and degaussing information which can be saved and printed, giving hard copy evidence of complete erasure for reporting and auditing purposes.


The unique Log System records all operating and destruction information which can be saved and printed, giving hard copy evidence of complete destruction


SSD adaptor for Crunch 250 DestroyerComplete with optional Solid State Drive (SSD) adapter, the Crunch 250 destroys SATA, PATA, SCSI, Fibre Channel, Notebook/Laptop Hard Drives (3" and 2" all formats and types). The SSD adapter enables: SSD's and Hybrid HDD control boards to be destroyed. Specially profiled plates crush the solid state media from top and bottom causing rippling which destroy the individual memory chips.


Neat and compact the Crunch 250 can destroy media in just 9 seconds making it time efficient and office friendly. It is simple to operate and has inbuilt safety features. A handy LCD display shows progress of the destruction.


Simple Operation

In just three easy steps the destruction process is complete.


1. The operator opens the door and inserts the drive.

2. Closing the door energises the unit and pressing the button starts the destruction process. Progress is shown on the LCD.

3. When the display shows the process is complete the door is opened and the destroyed drive can be removed.


At all times through the cycle the safety interlocks ensures operators cannot put fingers, clothing etc in the crushing area whilst the moving parts are energised.


Logging System

When destruction logging is required simply connect a PC or Laptop to the Crunch 250 and open the logging program. Click on the "Find Machine" button and all the unit details will be automatically entered into the log including model, serial number and firmware version. Further data regarding operator, customer and media is then entered via keyboard (or optional barcode scanner).


Once the destruction process is complete, the lower portion of the screen will show all the details of the destruction including date, time, Media Serial number, and confirmation that the media was destroyed successfully. If this data is highlighted and the print button pressed all the details on the screen along with all the data entered will be printed as a report. As new media is erased the details will be added to the Media Processed Log in the lower half of the screen. By highlighting erase records, the logs of one or more can be printed as required.

There is a Supervisor Section in the software which is Password protected. This allows the Supervisor to decide which fields are required and which fields must be completed by the Operator. The log record is stored in the PC and can be archived at any time or exported as a .csv file.
