Up to 75 % smaller than constructions from competitors

50 % smaller than a comparable MultiQube installation and up to 75 % smaller than constructions from competitors

Minor cause, major effect: Thanks to its ultra-compact design the application of the Qube+ allows up to 100 % more working productivity and up to 300 % more warehouse productivity.

With the Qube+ all “time-wasters” can be eliminated in one sweep – this way you benefit from extreme increases in productivity in the everyday restoration work:

Making arrangements for less devices and moving them in each event of damage, reduced stock requirements, more equipment per tour in the service vehicle, quicker loading and unloading, quicker transport from the vehicle to the site of damage, quicker installation, quicker disassembly, a reduced need for cleaning.

The bottom line is your working and warehouse productivity can be increased may times over by using the Qube+!

Ultra-compact – plus great equipment: Qube+

Besides a non-wearing touchscreen control panel with additional screen protection the Qube+ comes equipped with the innovative Optiflow NT multi-function display, which displays not only all the settings but more importantly also a colour-coded rendering of the drying installation’s efficiency. The standard equipment of each Qube+ also includes a DA 4 interface and an Efidry humidity sensor connection.
Non-wearing touchscreen control panel

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.

TTKwic mode

TTKwic mode

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.

The control panel has an even more hard-wearing design. Using the key lock function, you can simply eliminate any risk of maloperation.

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.

HiDry automatism

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!

The Qube+ impresses with high economic efficiency

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.

Telescopic push handle
Stackable construction

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.

Motor cover with carrying handle and cable holder

The motor cover is further equipped with carrying handle and convenient cable holder. Moreover, two recesses for stacking ensure the secure stand of the stacked devices during transport or storage.

Service-friendly design

Service socket and hose connection for process air discharge

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.

Service-friendly design
Flexible filter system

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.
