The HPM-4 is listed on the National Security Agency Evaluated Products List-Degausser. It meets DoD requirements for purging classified information on longitudinal and perpendicular magnetic disk storage devices up to 5000 Oersteds and magnetic tape storage devices up to 2800 Oersteds.


The HPM-4 combines two separate magnetic field configurations, horizontal and vertical, for superior performance. This multi-directional magnetic field offers the best solution for current and future magnetic media. Environmentally friendly solution requires no electricity; manual operation for use in any environment. Quick cycle time allows for fast throughput as it degauss up to 900 hard drives/tapes per hour.



•Simple operation: insert the media and rotate the effortless handle
•Trusted: NSA approved, listed in the "NSA Evaluated Products List - Degausser"
•Fast: 4 seconds per cycle, one-pass, continuous duty
•Strong: combines two separate magnetic field configurations for superior performance and greatest life span
•Durable: permanent magnets never degrade
•Energy saving: operates without electricity


Independent scientific testing confirms this degausser erases Longitudinal Magnetic Recorded (LMR) and Perpendicular Magnetic Recorded (PMR) hard disk media with a coercivity of 5000 Oersteds and tape media with a coercivity of 2800 Oersteds.


Media Size
With a larger chamber than the LM-4, the LM-4E accepts any magnetic recording media to maximum rectangular size of 7 inches (178 mm) by 4.6 inches (117 mm) by 1.65 inch (41 mm) high. No adaptors required.


Energy efficient:
With permanent magnet technology, the HPM-4 operates continuously in powerless environments without contributing to your carbon footprint. Simply insert the media and rotate the handle. No electricity require).


Greatest Lifespan
The patented, dual permanent magnet arrangement of the HPM-4 degausser creates multiple magnetic fields working in a vertical and horizontal pattern, which results in two extremely powerful magnetic fields. Independent scientific testing confirms the HPM-4 erases all current magnetic media, as well as having the potential to erase higher coercivities as they become available, making the HPM-4 a smart, long-term choice.


Selling Points:


  • The HPM-4 comes with the highest approval in the NSA Evaluated Products List-Degausser (EPL-D). The HPM-4 is approved by the NSA to erase 2800 Oersted tape media and 5000 Oersted Longitudinal and Perpendicular recorded disk media.
  • The HPM-4 degausser uses permanent magnets; no electricity is required to generate a magnetic field or operate the degausser. The HPM-4 operates continuously with no down time. The HPM-4 will operate in powerless environments or in the event of a power loss in friendly or emmergency environments. The HPM-4 quickly erases media; anywhere, anytime
  • The compact footprint requires minimal space in any environment. The HPM-4 mobile cart, paired with the compact design, provides effortless movement anywhere.
  • Permanent magnet technology. The HPM-4 permanent degausser has an unlimited shelf life; the HPM-4 can be used as long as customers have the media to degauss. The magnet design does not generate heat, has no magnet degradation and does not require any technical upgrades.
  • Two magnetic fields provide strongest degausser and longest life. Experts theorize that future hard drives (perpendicular recorded storage devices) will require a second field in order to erase it. The HPM-4 is the only degausser with this second field. Therefore, owners of the HPM-4 are in the best position to erase future magnetic media, saving the government and taxpayer dollars over time.
  • Fast, simple, easy operation. The HPM-4 is one of the fastest operating degausser listed in the DEPL. The HPM-4 is easy to load and does not require adapters. Media is degaussed in 4 seconds or less! The hand crank is positioned for any operator; no adjustments are necessary.
  • The magnetic field experienced around the HPM-4 is less than the earth’s magnetic field which makes it vert safe.
  • World wide on-site service and toll free phone support. Depot level and on-site service is available for quick and easy support; our customers experience less down timeListed on the National Security Agency Evaluated Products List-Degausser (EPL-Degausser), NSA/CSS-EPL-9-12A.
