Currency disintegrators and granulators
Banknotes and coins must be taken out of circulation at the end of life, due to damage, or due to the discovery of counterfeit currency. It is a worldwide requirement to securely destroy currency once it has reached the end of its life or is found to be counterfeit. This prevents the currency from continuing to be used, and ensures that counterfeit banknotes are taken out of circulation completely.

At their base level, these disintegrators process up to 100 lbs per hour, with a quiet operation (80-85 dBA) to prevent the machinery from disrupting your organization.

Why can’t businesses simply burn banknotes instead of disintegrating them?
It is prohibited to burn banknotes in the United States under 18 U.S.C. § 333: Mutilation of national bank obligations. It is important to properly and effectively destroy the data, which requires disintegration or granulation.
When should currency be destroyed?
Currency destruction should occur when old bills reach the end of their life, or when bills become too damaged to be recognized for what they are. Counterfeit currency should also be destroyed to prevent it from reentering circulation.
What is the price range for currency disintegrators?
Currency disintegrators typically cost more than other types of disintegrators, as they deliver a high-security level to prevent the currency from reentering circulation. Typically, this price range can start under $17,000 and reach over $96,000, depending on the make and model.
