It’s quite simple. Plus more. Qube+
For insulation drying, a comparable set of stacked MultiQubes can simply be replaced with one device – the Qube+. It achieves up to 20 % more area output while being 50 % lighter and 50 % smaller than the tower.
Therefore, the transport from the service vehicle to the damage site can be effected 100 % quicker. A multi-device installation with complex hose connections can be omitted without replacement. Just set it up, plug it in, switch it on – all done!
No more equipment technology is needed, the Qube+ comes ready for connection with all integrated parts: A powerful VX 5 turbine insulation dryer, a water separator, a 4-stage filter system and an efficient silencer – ultra-compact, united in a robust, stackable aluminium construction, offering clearly more advantages and at the same time causing considerably less costs than multi-device solutions.
Your employees will be grateful as well: 50 % less to carry, lift, haul, stack – 100 % fewer hose connections, less wiring and lashing down – 20 % less to be assembled!
Globally unique integral solution:
- VX 5 turbine
- Water separator WA 4i

- Night operation – whisper mode
- Non-wearing touchscreen control panel
And now, the Qube+ comes with even more plus factors to offer:
Touchscreen control panel
The Qube+ affords convenient handling by touch. No controller, no wear. A soft touch on the corresponding symbol is all it takes to configure your Qube+.
In addition to the Plus/Minus buttons for a quick selection of the respective performance level the control panel also accommodates functions for an extra whisper mode as well as for the combined display of power consumption and operating hours.
Optiflow NT multi-function display
Not only the current operating status and volumetric flow can be read from the Optiflow NT multi-function display of the Qube+ as plain text – also in the dark or from a distance – the colour of the display illumination also automatically indicates how effectively the drying air can flow through the insulation layer of your installation.
Green confirms optimum volumetric flow, orange indicates thresholds and with a red LED the air flow rate is insufficient for the area, so that installation optimization is needed for quicker drying.
Night operation – whisper mode
In whisper mode the Qube+ is particularly silent, yet efficient. For sound level reduction is not simply effected by reducing the power, but by regulating it with noise-optimized emphasis to the optimum volumetric flow of power stage 2.
Once activated, the Qube+ operates in whisper mode for ten hours and then automatically switches back to the previously used power stage. Enormously handy for customers requiring maximally silenced background noise for a short time.
Sensor-supported thermal protection function
An integrated sensor system monitors the internal air temperature of the Qube+ and automatically switches from the current level to level 1 before destructive climate conditions above 45 °C are reached inside the device, which lead to material stress and thus shorten the lifetime of the Qube+.
The temperature is continued to be monitored and the Qube+ will automatically switch back to normal operation if the temperatures drop again. However, if the temperature level remains critical over too long a period, the device is switched off completely for reasons of safety.
This protection not only significantly extends the lifetime of your insulation dryers and dehumidifiers, it also prevents thermal damages to materials located in the room and the building structure.
The Qube+ has all the performance characteristics of the water separator WA 4i including two TTKwic quick couplings for the simple drainage connection of dehumidifiers.
To ensure that their condensate is pumped off reliably via the TTKwic quick couplings even when the Qube+ is switched off, you can switch the device into TTKwic mode via the control panel. The motor will be off, but the pump will keep running.
Turbo motor with adaptronic power control
The four-step variable turbo motor of the Qube+ achieves up to 20,000 rpm and guarantees maximum efficiency at any power level, because due to the integrated HiDry automatism the current volumetric flow is recorded continually in m³/h and the air flow rate of the Qube+ is automatically adjusted to the optimum value.
At the touch of a button the Qube+ switches either into a higher performance class or, if required, into the additional whisper mode.
Fully automatically always the most efficient drying performance
A motor power exceeding the demand does not speed up the drying process, instead it only increases wear and power consumption. The decisive performance variable for a quicker drying process is not motor power, but an unvaryingly high air passage through the insulation layer areas to be dried.
Therefore, the Qube+ comes equipped with the innovative HiDry automatic control system, which adjusts the performance not based on resistance, but on volumetric flow, and so automatically ensures the most efficient performance in each stage for every drying installation.
Much like a cruise control in a car, the sensor-supported HiDry automatism dynamically and continuously adjusts the volumetric flow rate of the Qube+ to the preset optimum value of the respective power stage.
Whilst at the beginning of the drying process more motor power is required to maintain the volumetric flow at a relatively high resistance, the need for power falls continuously as the drying proceeds.
Over the entire drying period the HiDry automatism ensures that the turbo motor of the Qube+ does not generate more power than needed to maintain the optimum volumetric flow.
The result: The quickest possible drying at minimum energy input!
Performance-optimized energy consumption
Unlike conventional side channel compressor turbines, the Qube+ turbo motor’s output and power consumption are always linear and directly interrelated:
When the performance level is cut back or the counter-pressure decreases, the power consumption is equally reduced. Plus the performance control is not effected based on resistance, but geared to the required volumetric flow.
Due to this technique, the Qube+, compared to side channel compressors, works more or less at the energy-saving eco tariff, especially during the final drying phase.
Always just as much power as you need:
- Power stage 1:
Ideal for the economical drying of smaller surfaces. At this level the Qube+ offers the same output as a 0.4 kW side channel compressor, but uses 70 % less power!
- Power stage 2:
Corresponds to the output of a 0.8 kW side channel compressor.
- Power stage 3:
The Qube+ is approx. 10 % more powerful than a side channel compressor with 1.1 to 1.3 kW.
- Power stage 4:
Corresponds to 160 % of the output of a 1.1 kW to 1.3 kW side channel compressor and to 95 % of the performance of a 3 kW side channel compressor.
Stackable construction with telescopic push handle
The height-adjustable telescopic push handle can be extended and retracted at the push of a button. This serves to individually adjust the handle height to the respective user as well as for space-saving storage.
The Qube+ comes equipped with an integrated service socket to which a condenser dryer or drying control unit can be connected quickly and easily.
Also, the Qube+ is provided with a 50 mm threaded connection for process air discharge. With it the critical heating of the room temperature can be effectively reduced to preserve the value of your drying devices.
Flexible filter system
For all applications requiring HEPA filtration the carrier case of the G4 filter sleeve can quickly and easily be replaced by the HEPA filter module with combined F8 prefilter sleeve.
Be it for filter changes or cleaning, the maintenance-friendly design of the Qube+ permits quick and safe working. Turbo motor, power connection and all major electrical components are accommodated entirely in the motor cover, which – owing to the quick-lock technology – can be detached in a wink.
Once the cover is removed, the bottom section of the Qube+ is completely de-energized since there are no cable connections from the motor cover. Hence, you can immediately start cleaning without further safety measures.
DA 4 interface
The Qube+ is as standard equipped with an interface for data exchange with our drying control unit DA 4 Qube.
The combination of both units enables the cross-linkage of all device data incl. real-time remote monitoring of system status and drying progress.
