Easy Operation

The NSA listed 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.

In just three easy steps the destruction process is complete. The operator opens the door and inserts the drive. Closing the door energizes the unit and pressing the button starts the destruction process. Progress is shown on the LCD. 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 energized. 


Transportation Case: An optional heavy-duty transportation case with wheels is available for the Crunch 250, enabling you to safely transfer your degausser by road or air, ideal if you have a requirement to erase media at multiple locations.
