Which degausser is best for me ?

By riyaz145 ·
My company has a requirement for a degausser for purging hard drives and tapes

They have

LTO3 tapes

and old DDS/DAT/Ultrium1 & Ultrium2 tapes as well that should be included for degaussing

Specifications are that it has to be portable, does not need a faster one a throughput of 15-20 tapes per hour is sufficient

Appreciate your suggestion on the best model for my requirement

Just about anything will do for the Tapes

But the HDD require something with a bit more power as these are Shielded from Magnetic Interference.

A simple Bulk Eraser will do for the tapes and be reasonably fast and cheap but unfortunately the HDD are a completely different story. You'll need to find out what is available locally to you for them.
