Description of the Datastroyer DCS 100 Disintegrator
If you are looking for a small sized disintegrator to fit in your office, look no further than the Datastroyer DCS 100 disintegrator. The DCS 100 is NSA evaluated to meet or exceed NSA/CSS Specification 02-02 for paper and Keytape, as well as Specification 04-02 for Optical Media. With the 3/32” screen, this granulator will destroy your materials to high security standards. Other screen sizes are available depending on your security needs. The DCS 100 disintegrator is equipped with an internal vacuum system for collection of the particles that pass through the screens. This heavy-duty office disintegrator has a throughput of up to 80 lbs. per hour, and will destroy up to 3,500 CDs and DVDs per hour. Although small is structure, the Datastroyer DCS100 features 3 rotor knives that spin rapidly while fixed 2 bed knives assist in tearing your materials into pieces. Thanks to the 9 ¼” x 1 ½” media slot, the DCS 100 is meant more for mixed media destruction rather than paper. This disintegrator accommodates credit cards, memory sticks, ID cards, cassettes, floppy disks, microfilm, etc.
Thanks to the safety interlock access panels, the DCS 100 will instantly shut off should the cabinet door open during operation. This level 6 disintegrator has an enclosed operating system which provides a quiet environment with an 80-85 dBA rating (a little louder than a vacuum). An optional feed rate meter allows users to monitor the operational capacity of the unit to ensure it does not get overfed. Compared to the industrial disintegrators, the DCS 100 is lightweight, weighing just 550 lbs. Nevertheless, this disintegrator is easy to transport and relocate thanks to heavy duty swivel casters. With dimensions of 23 3/4” W x 29 3/8” D x 40 3/4” H, the DCS 100 guarantees convenience, ease-of-use, and security in one compact package.

Does the DCS 100 meet NSA destruction requirements for hard drive platters? It does not specify in the features description.As of this moment there is no NSA regulation for the destruction of a hard drive. The only requirement that the NSA has for hard drives is that they are degaussed using an NSA approved degausser (like the Datastroyer 105 Hard Drive Degausser). The NSA strongly recommends physical destruction as well, but it is not mandatory. With that said, the DCS 100 would not handle an entire hard drive. Potentially it could manage a hard drive platter, but for whole hard drive destruction you'll want to look at the Datastroyer 105 Hard Drive Shredder.
