The equipment we use:

HD-3WXL Hard Drive Degausser

1 Green Planet uses Garner Product's Data Eliminator HD-3WXL hard drive degausserr for data destruction that meets government data destruction compliance requirements.  Clickk HERE to see a video of this machine in action.  

Degauss vs. Overwrite::

The HD-3WXL produces an erasing field several times stronger than the erasing fields produced by the read/write heads in hard drives and tape drives. This makes for a deeper and more efficient erasure than software based wiping programs. Since the HD-3WXL does not rely on software, the HD-3WXL will also completely and permanently erase failed and damaged hard drives regardless of the operating system or interface..

Government Mandates::
The HD-3WXL will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to re-use or disposal including:

  • PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
  • NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
  • NIST SP 800-366
  • NIST SP 800-888
  • HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
  • PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
  • GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
  • California Senate Bill 13866


1 Green Planet uses Security Engineered Machinery's Sledge Hammer 0101 hard drive crusher for data destruction to ensure that your data cannot be recovered.  Click HERE to see a video of this machine in action. 

This hard drive "crusher" destroys all hard drives regardless of their size, format or type (from .65 to 1.65 inch) including desktop and laptop drives.  At the touch of a button, the Model 0101 Sledgehammer Hard Drive Crusher delivers a staggering 12,000 pounds of force to a conical punch causing catastrophic trauma to the hard drive chassis while destroying the internal platter.
