Office Disintegrator Reduces Paper To Particles Smaller Than Conventional High Security Shredders

WESTBORO, MA -The Model 200 shredder disintegrator from Security Engineered Machinery reduces paper to particles less than 3/32" X 3/32" (exceeding current Department of Defense standards for paper destruction). Unlike conventional shredders, the Model 200 utilizes a rotary knife mill design, which consists of two knives mounted on a solid steel rotor and two knives on a stationary bed. As the rotor spins waste is continually cut by the passing knives until it is small enough to fit through a 3/32" X 3/32" steel screen.

In addition to destroying paper, the Model 200 is rugged enough to destroy CD's/DVD's, floppy discs, credit cards, I.D. badges, microfilm and even audio cassettes.

The system operates on 115V power. It consists of a cutting unit, and attached waste extraction vacuum. Both are housed in a fully sound proofed enclosure for quiet operation. The small footprint allows the unit to fit in any office, mailroom, computer room or copy center.
