Securely Erase SSD Solid State Drive NetApp Disks

Is it possible to securely erase an SSD NetApp disk?  We re-use spinning disks and sanitise them using the disk sanitisation process, however is there a way to securely sanitise an SSD disk or do they have to be crushed?

 

Thanks in advance.

Thanks! - So it looks like most SSD's can be sanitised and re-used Smiley Happy
