Magnetic Tape Destruction and Sanitation

Magnetic data tape destructionWe can offer you a secure and completely confidential magnetic data tape destruction service tailored to suit your specific needs.  The most effective way of ensuring that your sensitive data has been securely disposed of is to either degauss or physically destroy your magnetic data tapes.

YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF TWO SECURE METHODS IN DESTROYING DATA FROM MAGNETIC DATA TAPES.

Your choice would be based on your situation including the type of tape and if you require the tapes to be re-used.

 
Magnetic data tapes need to be re-used (Most modern tapes cannot be re-used after degaussing)
Magnetic data tapes will be rendered un-usable (Some legacy data tapes can be re-used after degaussing)
Magnetic tapes contains sensitive information
Magnetic tapes contains highly sensitive information (Top Secret)
Do-it-yourself degaussing  (No certificate of destruction issued)

WHAT IS DEGAUSSING?

Prodevice ASM120 Degausser

  • Degaussing is the process of decreasing (neutralizing) or destroying a remnant magnetic field by reversing the polarity of the magnetic particles.
  • Degaussing permanently destroys information from functional and non-functional hard disk drives (HDD) rendering them un-usable as the electromagnetic field not only destroys data written to the magnetic media but also destroys the servo tracks and could also destroy some sensitive components on the printed circuit boards.
  • Degaussing permanently erases information from functional and non-functional magnetic data tapes like LTO, 3592, T10K, 3590, 9840, 9940 etc. rendering them un-usable as the electromagnetic field not only destroys data written to the magnetic media but also destroy the servo tracks.
  • Some older data tapes like DLT, SDLT , DDS, 3480, 3490e as well as audio and video (VHS) cassettes and floppy disks do not lose their magnetic properties after degaussing and can be re-used.
