The Garner HD-3WXL Hard Drive & Tape Degausser is the most innovative product in the Garner lineup. The HD-3WXL erases hard drives (laptop, desktop and network drives up to 1.66-inches thick) and high coercivity tape media including all formats of LTO (1,2,3 and 4), SuperDLT I & II, DLT, 9940, 3590, AIT, 8mm, and more, all without adapters. 

The Garner HD-3WXL Degausser is designed to run CONTINUOUSLY. With a fast 9 second cycle time it is perfect for degaussing large quantities of media quickly and easily. 

HD-3WXL Operations:

Simply slide the hard drive or tape into the slot on the left side of the unit. A sensor in the media door senses the media and within a few seconds your media is completely erased and slide out the right side of the unit. Its as simple as that.


Built-in safeguards check the stored power and field strength during each erase cycle ensuring complete erasure every time. A field strength indicator on the display as well as an "Erase Complete" message report the status of the HD-3WXL to the operator. 

Government Mandates:

The HD-3WXL will assist you in meeting compliance standards for government mandates requiring complete elimination of sensitive information stored on magnetic media prior to reuse or disposal including:

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry) Data Security Standard
NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Guidelines for Media Sanitization
NIST SP 800-36
NIST SP 800-88
HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act)
PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act)
GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
California Senate Bill 1386

Erasure Verification Tests:

Hard drives erased with the HD-3WXL have been tested and verified by hard drive manufacturers, information recovery companies, private and governmental forensic laboratories which independently confirmed no data was recoverable.  

IMPORTANT - Please be aware that degaussing hard drives should only be done for destructive purposes. Degaussing erases the hard drive's servo chip thereby rendering them unusable.

The SCAN-1 Option lets you scan and record media serial numbers, erasure status, and other important information to create detailed audit worthy media destruction reports.
