Product Dismantling

How a product is designed has a great impact on its dis-assembly for end-of-life processing, destruction, and recycling.  The product’s design also determines how it can be repaired or upgraded, but in the world of recycling and destruction, the overall product design dictates the product dismantling method.

Data Killers is the nationwide expert in product dismantling and dis-assembly.  Many products are sent to us to be stripped to a component level because the OEM does not want their product reverse engineered.  Some products arrive for destruction because they have been recalled and the OEM needs a Certificate of Destruction for a governing agency.

Some products need to be manually disassembled and some need to be shredded for full destruction.  Overall, the degree to which a product can be disassembled determines how the product will end its life.  For this reason, Data Killers offers complete product dismantling services and product destruction services including incineration in fully accredited waste-to-energy facilities when appropriate.   Data Killers is a dba for Turtle Wings, Inc.

With years of experience processing electronics and equipment of all types, Turtle Wings & Data Killers has extensive knowledge amongst our skilled technicians who can provide complete product dis-assembly on-site at your location if needed or at our warehouse.

The product dismantling process is labor intensive requiring vast knowledge of the products design and correct protocol for disassembly.  We inspect and research each item thoroughly to ensure the most accurate form of disassembly and end-of-life processing.  Our recycling and dismantling facilities are all in the U.S. and comply with all applicable, local, state and federal regulations.   Our downstream processors have all been thoroughly vetted in accordance with our certifications which include R2:2103; ISO 14401; and OHSAS 18001.

Turtle Wings & Data Killers provides a systematic process of disassembly allowing reusable, non-recyclable, as well as hazardous components to be selectively separated from recyclable ones. Our properly planned disassembly process, together with recycling and disposal, can greatly enhance the feasibility of a product’s end-of-life management.
