Hard Drive Shredding

Over the past few decades, data security has become an ever-growing issue. The potentially huge costs, financially, legally, and to companies’ reputations makes ensuring complete destruction of data stored on computer drives a critically important task.

While there are many methods of destroying data, only a process that includes physical destruction of the storage media can provide maximum security. UNTHA four shaft shredders reduce drives to small, separate particles, practically eliminating the possibility of data retrieval.

Our hard drive shredders


The perfect solution

Our four-shaft hard drive shredders can be configured for your specific needs.

  • Quickly interchangeable screens allow you to change particle size to suit varying customer security requirements.

  • At security level H-5 (approximately ¾”) up to150 drives/hr can be shredded.

  • Once a drive has been shredded it is virtually impossible to retrieve information from the media.

Since the hard drives are shredded into discrete separated particles, the various materials are easily separated for maximum recycling value.


Certified and flexible

UNTHA’s four-shaft shredders have been certified by DEKRA to meet the requirements of DIN 66399-2 for Destruction Systems for Files and Data Carriers. These shredders are flexible enough to also shred optical storage media like CDs and DVDs as well as solid state media like SD cards and USB sticks. Unlike many hard drive shredders, our shredders offer you a single shredder for most or all of your applications.

The easily changed screens are available in a wide range of sizes, allowing you to tailor your shredder to meet your customer’s specific requirements. Our shredders are compact enough to be installed in a truck or trailer for on-site shredding.

Because of UNTHA’s commitment to continuous improvement, our shredders are tough, rugged, and suitable for long hours of high-capacity shredding.

Metal shredding is a necessary step in the recycling process, independent of whether your scrap metal comes from the metal-processing industry, the automotive industry, the electrical industry or the waste industry.


Scrap plastic can be recovered and reused by shredding, washing, and final size reduction to produce material suitable for recycling, reuse, or alternative fuel.

Electronic waste (WEEE)

Electronic scrap comprises old electrical and electronic devices, as well as components of these which can no longer be used.

Electronic waste
Commercial & industrial waste

Commercial and industrial waste is collected separately according to the respective components before being processed and reintroduced into the raw material cycle (recycling), or recovered for thermal recycling or for energetic utilisation (substitute fuels).
