Today we are going to answer this age-old question:
The main difference between the Mini-Mite PLATINUM™ and Q PLATINUM™ turbines is – noise level. The Q PLATINUM™ series is designed with patented noise reduction technology that reduces the sound of the motor by eliminating all Direct Sound Paths found commonly on low to mid-priced HVLP turbines. While a comparable sound level to the Mini-Mite PLATINUM™ turbine is a standard shop vacuum system – the Q PLATINUM™ series will reduce those levels by 50%.
For example, at 20ft away, the Q5 PLATINUM™ runs at 60dba, which would be similar to a normal conversation:
- At 15ft, the Q4 PLATINUM™ Turbine is only 62 dba, and at 20ft it is 59 dba.
- At 15ft, the Q3 PLATINUM™ Turbine is only 61 dba, and at 20ft, it is 58 dba.
Which series is best for you?
The Q PLATINUM™ series is an ideal turbine system for use where sound levels are a factor. Especially if you are working onsite when homeowners are present, working in a small shop setting with coworkers, or if you just have cranky neighbors.

The Mini-Mite PLATINUM™ series is a great option if noise level is not a concern. It has a smaller footprint and is approximately 8 lbs. lighter than the Q PLATINUM™ series, making the Mini-Mite PLATINUM™ the ideal option for an “on the go”, portable refinisher.
