Hand Degaussers:

These are hand held permanent magnet degaussers. To degauss disk storage devices, insert the degaussing wand into the disk pack so that the active magnetic portion completely covers the recording surface of the disk from hub to perimeter. Wipe each active disk surface (top and bottom) at least three times with the magnet. If disks are part of a sealed hard disk drive assembly, they must be removed from the assembly for degaussing. The erasure of hard disk drives causes damage that prohibits their continued use.

Approved by the DOD for both Type I and Type II media, the Proton Engineering model 1100 Degaussing Wand is designed to provide maximum security degaussing of a wide range of magnetic media. The Model 1100 effectively degausses disk drives, diskpacks, drum type memories, floppies, and any flat-surface magnetic memory.

A multi-polar design insures minimum flux levels of 6,000 gauss and full hysteresis of all magnetic states. Conventional magnetic recording devices (recording heads) cannot provide the flux density required to totally erase magnetic signatures. The magnetic information remains in the media after conventional erasing techniques and reformatting procedures. Only a high-energy magnetic circuit that provides a full-cycle (+ - + -) field can reliably erase this remnant magnetic information to a full security level.

How does this work?
You will need to remove the covers off any hard drives if you wish to degauss the hard drive. The wand must be placed over the platter and the platter should be rotated so that all of the surface area is exposed. After that, insert the wand in between each platter and repeat the previous step until all platters have been degaussed. A magnetic shield is provided for safe storage of the degaussing wand.Certified by the U.S. National Security Agency for all security levels in applications specified.

All AABES declassification products are manufactured to the requirements of, and meet or exceed DOD standards for, CD or magnetic data destruction devices.
