The lightweight, compact unit can be adjusted in size to meet customer requirements. <span style="FONT-SIZE&#58;12pt;FONT-FAMILY&#58;&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"></span></p> </div>
Data Destruction<div class="body"> <div class="thumbnail"> <img title="" alt="" src="http&#58;//" width="144" height="180" /> </div> <p>The Model 22 HDD Hard Drive Destruction System from <font color="#ff0000"><strong>Security Engineered Machinery</strong></font> of Westboro, Massachusetts, prevents data theft by shredding used computer hard drives into unreconstructible fragments.

Custom units are available for destroying books, bound documents, plastic bottles, and defective or obsolete products.

A rotary knife mill in the destruction chamber cuts the waste until the particles are small enough to pass through a steel sizing screen, and the user can determine the particle size by choosing the mesh of the screen. Components are stainless steel so drive magnets will not adhere. <span style="FONT-SIZE&#58;12pt;FONT-FAMILY&#58;&quot;Times New Roman&quot;;"></span></p> </div>
