MediaVise® Rackmount V-Spike® Solid-State Drive (MVR-V-SSD) Destroyer

The Phiston MediaVise Rackmount V-Spike SSD Destroyer (MVR-V- SSD) is the first and only commercially available, rack mountable that combines physical Destruction of solid-state storage Devices (SSD) with Phiston `s V-Spike Technology that Disables SSD Electronic Components.


The MVR-V- SSD has a large versatile crushing chamber that allows it to destroy, disable and render inoperable, without any special adapters, a variety of miniaturized electronic devices and data storage media including USBs, PDAs, cell/smart phones, laptop HDDsand circuit boards.It will also crush and disable a limited number of computer HDDs (see specifications).

Simple, Safe 2-Step Operation

  • 1. Insert Device
  • 2. Press Crush

Device is crushed and ejected into a safe debris storage drawer.User never touches hazardous debris.

Product Features

The MVR-V SSD utilizes Phiston's proprietary 20 Ton (40,000 lbs.) MediaVise hydraulic crushing platform fitted with a pair of patented crushing plates with arrays of 187 interlocking razor sharp hardened steel teeth (see below). MVR-V-SSD integrates two of Phiston`s Technological breakthrough into one Machine:

The crusher doesn't simply bend SSDs leaving chips intact; it chews them with up to 187 teeth piercings of the SSD media. Fragile ceramic memory chips and controllers are punctured, crushed and serrated on both sides,in less than 30 seconds, including automatic debris ejection and containment.

  • Phiston’s V-Spike technology that delivers an electrical jolt to disable electronic components on SSD media including memory chips and controllers
  • Built-in Worker and Environmental Health and Safety features:

    • Fully automated, hands-off operation for user safety
    • Debris accumulates in collection bin until safely disposed of
    • HEPA Filtration system traps any potentially harmful airborne particulates from the crushing and shattering of circuit boards, electronic components, and silicon-based memory and integrated circuit chips.
    • RFI and EMI Suppression to minimize interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity
    • Noise suppression to 65db which is much quieter than the 85db threshold acceptable to OSHA for workplace
    • Machine automatically powers off to conserve energy
  • MVR-V SSD Patented Crushing Plates below and Destroyed Media

    Designed specifically for SSD destruction, the large number and high density of teeth on the crushing plates with V-Spike Technology ensure maximum destruction of memory chips and other electronic components in solid state


  • Approved by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) for Secure Destruction of SSDs and Miniaturized Electronic Devices including USBs, PDAs and cell/smart phones containing or having processed:

    a) Protected A or B, or Confidential Information. Prior clearing or overwriting is recommended but not required.

    b) Secret or Protected C information; provided information was encrypted or first cleared or overwritten.

  • Approved by the RCMP for Interim Destruction pending further Approved Destruction. The MVR-V- SSD renders HDDs, SSDs and Miniaturized Electronic Devices unplayable by ordinary means and is therefore approved as a risk mitigation measure for media in transit to, or awaiting additional destruction required for medium and confidentiality levels of information.

Maximum Media Size that can be put in the crusher Up to 5.75” x 1.25” x 4” (H x L x W). Depending on their sizes, up to 2 smaller SSD devices or 2 laptop HDDs at a time may be crushed provided they fit easily in the crusher (do NOT force in).
Media Sanitization throughput 2 per cycle or 240 /Hr
Media Accepted Dedicated SSD destroyer (no adapters required), cell phones, circuit boards, memory chips. The MVR-SSD will also crush computer HDDs making them inoperable, however, this application is recommended only for emergency destruction of HDDs, and only in limited numbers as the hard metal casings of HDDs will quickly dull the sharp pyramidal teeth of the MVC-SSD.
Debris Collection Debris is ejected directly into the included collection drawer that holds up to 75 destroyed SSDs
Maintenance/Longevity 50,000 Cycles MTBF. No blades to be replaced or sharpened
Technical Support On-call technical support service department; nationwide and international technical support team that can be deployed if and when repairs or maintenance needed.
