Allegheny Hard Drive/E-Scrap Shredders
“ I can’t say enough about our Allegheny
Hard Drive/E-Scrap Shredder. We can
shred 1500 drives in half a day in my
mobile truck! The shredder has paid
for itself tenfold, and I’m expanding to
in-house destruction next year.”
Advantage E-cycling
LLEGHENY'S rugged, high-capacity
hard drive/e-scrap shredders meet
the growing need for destruction of
computer hard drives, optical media,
and other electronic storage devices
(cell phones, handheld devices, laptop
computers, etc.). The Allegheny Hard
Drive/E-Scrap Shredders offer reliable,
cost-effective destruction of obsolete
electronic materials that pose a threat
to data security and tax our landfills.
Physical destruction is the most
effective and desirable solution for unwanted or obsolete data-bearing media.
Shredding offers maximum protection,
eliminating any possibility of reconstruction or retrieval. Allegheny offers three
separate horsepower models, a 3 Hp, 71/2
Hp and a 20 Hp model.
Our compact, affordable 3 Hp Model
5HD3, with a 5" cutting assembly, can destroy 12-15 hard drives per minute—up to
600 standard drives per hour. The 7½ Hp
model, featuring either an 8" or 12" cutting assembly, accepts most standard hard
drives (25-35 per minute). The 12" version
accepts most laptop computers (without
batteries). Allegheny’s heavy-duty 20 Hp
model, with twice the torque of the 7½
Hp model, is designed for high volume
applications. The 12" cutting assembly
shreds 35-45 hard drives per minute, as
well as laptop computers and electronic
storage devices. All models operate with
minimal noise and vibration.
Allegheny Hard Drive/E-Scrap
Shredders are designed, engineered and
manufactured to be the most rugged,
reliable and long-lasting in the industry.
Key features include: computer-aided
design (CAD) and computer-aided
manufacturing (CAM) to guarantee
precision and maximum shredding
power; all-steel spur/drive gears for
high torque and heavy loads; a powerful Lincoln motor; and Dodge-Reliance
gear reducers that run in oil for quiet,
trouble-free operation.
Our hard drive/e-scrap shredders are
ideal for e-scrap recyclers, data centers,
and records & information management
centers that need to destroy sensitive
data-bearing media.
