Revolutionizing gas compression with smart, sustainable technology, Q-Drive is an electric servo actuated Compressed Gas System with unprecedented 4.0 intelligence, efficiency, precise control and accuracy. It delivers unrivalled performance, reliability, and safety. Plus, an advanced control system allows you to improve the visibility of real-time operations, increase efficiency and reduce the risk of operational downtime.
Q-Drive the next generation of gas compression systems operates efficiently and quietly, while increasing throughput and enabling seamless integration with other automated equipment. With its programmability, remote monitoring and control capabilities, Q-Drive allows you to gain greater process control, while preventive maintenance alerts and quick-change seal components make maintenance easy and cost effective.
Unlike Haskel hydraulic and pneumatic driven gas boosters, Q-Drive is powered by an electric servo drive motor. The motor’s rotation creates linear actuation, providing greater process control and high-precision movement. The combination of two proven technologies; Haskel gas sections with electric motor servo drive technology, makes Q-Drive an easy choice for those looking for the best-in-industry performance.
Q-Drive fully integrates into your existing facility control systems. It can communicate with other pieces of automation equipment through a suite of the latest communication protocols. This includes OPC UA, Modbus, Bacnet, Allen Bradley ABLogix, and Siemens S7, among others.
Additionally, Q-Drive has three pre-programmed modes of operation:
Each of these functions and their parameters can be accessed from the Human Machine Interface (HMI) screen on the unit. Another way to access them is through the remote system dashboard on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
Q-Drive’s Human Machine Interface optimizes user capabilities and safety for improved functionality. Acting as a built-in facility manager, the digital interface is designed to reduce risk and operational downtime. The user interface is fully programmable and adjustable for easy access to diagnostics and troubleshooting.

Q-Drive Gas Compressor Remote Control and Monitoring Capabilities
Q-Drive brings safety and reliability to the forefront. The system features ultra-quiet operation and self-monitoring for 30+ built-in sensors to prevent overheating and over-pressurization. For example, if the system temperature gets too high, Q-Drive control will automatically reduce the speed of the system to prevent overheating. Once the temperature has come down, the Q-Drive will automatically speed back up. Redundant safety features and communication protocols deliver unsurpassed safety levels and the reliability you expect from Haskel.
Q-drive is a versatile, flexible machine ready to perform in a variety of ways. Example applications include:
Actual System performance depends on several different items, including gas type, temperature, and coolant gas flow.
Q-drive is available in six models to match specifically the needs of your high-pressure compression applications. Industrial gas handling, CO2 extraction, or hydrogen filling stations – whatever the application, you can always contact Haskel’s Application Engineers with your specific system requirements to determine which configuration is best for you.
