The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco hand dryer is one of the most popular eco hand dryers on the UK and world markets. The model can be found in airports, fast food outlets, the English Institute of Sport, Motorpoint Arena and the Olympic Stadium. Qbic Turbo is a fast and low energy hand dryer, and with its solid construction makes it ideal for areas with an increased risk of vandalism. The Qbic Turbo Mark II is easily identifiable with its futuristic blue light.
Manufacturer states a dry time of 10 seconds
With the combination of its mighty 18,000 rpm motor and a specially concentrated air outlet, the Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco generates a remarkable air force that removes moisture from the hands in as little as 10 seconds under normal drying conditions. The air velocity is a staggering 100 metres per second or 225 mph.
Independent testing revealed the Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco to be the most effective high speed unit when hands are placed under it. The test also involved the Xlerator, the Airforce, the C-Force, the Vortex, the Stealthforce and the G-Force hand dryers.
Manufacturer stated 75 - 77 dbA @ 1 Metre
In the high speed category, the Qbic Turbo Mark II produced one of the higher noise levels. The manufacturer gives the model’s decibel level as between 75 dB(A) and 77dB(A) (reading taken from one metre in a soundproofed chamber). In actual fact, the sound level with be higher than this depending on the acoustics of the room; it will also increase with hands under the dryer. Independent testing gave the following data using the Qbic Turbo’s turbo setting:
• Hands under the dryer in a normal room (represents maximum expected real life volume) - 93.7 dB(A)
• Hands under the dryer in an anechoic chamber (soundproof) - 84 dB(A)*
Recommended for high usage washrooms over 300 uses per day
The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco is branded as energy efficient owing to its fast dry times and low energy consumption; as such it has achieved ECA accreditation (the UK government’s tax relief scheme for energy efficient products).
The Qbic Turbo Mark II can either be a warm air or ambient air hand dryer, featuring a low energy rating of between 0.35kw and 1.6kw depending on the heater and motor speed settings. With the unit’s fast dry time of 10-15 seconds, the power consumption per dry can be as little as 2.9 to 4.44w per dry, making it able to function over twice as energy efficiently than the Dyson Airblade.
The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco hand dryer uses less than 3.3g of carbon per dry, greatly contrasting with the 12.5g consumed per paper towel (typically 2-3 paper towels are used per dry).
The model is ROHS compliant and uses roughly 80% less energy than a conventional hand dryer.
The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco offers non-touch action and a relatively swift dry. It does not come with any enhanced hygiene features.
The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco has a universal brush motor with a life expectancy of approx 1000 continuous hours or 300,000 dry cycles
The Qbic Turbo Mark II Eco is relatively easy to install, All hand dryers require a suitable fused spur for installation
Sleek and compact in design, the Qbic Turbo Mark II comes with a 1.5mm thick stainless steel cover making the product highly robust and therefore ideal for locations with a risk of abuse. Its steel back-plate locks onto the cover via anti-vandal screws, to ensure an exceptionally resistant hand dryer.
