Disintegrator Plus Needle Destruction System

Client: Disintegrator Products

The Disintegrator is a portable, easy-to-use device that allows safe disposal of used insulin syringes by disintegrating the needle. A plasma arc melts the needle at a temperature of over 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit, reducing it to a small ball. The unit is portable, hand-held and has one-step activation.

  • Used syringes and pen needles are made safe for disposal as common household trash instead of as biohazard.

  • Unintentional needle reuse is virtually eliminated.

  • The risk of downstream infection is minimized.
