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+!
Touchscreen control panel
The Qube+ comes equipped with a wear-free touch control panel with additional display protection ➀ and in this way offers you convenient operation by the press of a finger. 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 ➀ for a quick selection of the respective performance level the control panel also accommodates functions for an extra whisper mode ➄ and for indicating the operating hours.
Optiflow NT multi-function display
On the Optiflow NT multi-function display ➁ of the Qube+ as plain text – also in the dark or from a distance – the colour of the display illumination also automatically indicates a rendering of the drying installation's efficiency.
If the drying air can flow through the insulation layer in an ideal manner, a green display confirms optimum volumetric flow, orange indicates thresholds and with a red LED the air flow rate is insufficient for the area, so that installation optimisation is needed for quicker drying.
Key lock function
Using this function ➃ you can easily eliminate the risk of maloperation. For as long as the key lock is activated, the keypad will be disabled thus preventing accidental control inputs.
Night operation – whisper mode
In whisper mode ➄, 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.
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.
DA 4 interface
The Qube+ is as standard equipped with an interface for data exchange with our drying control unit DA 4 Qube ➂ and also with a corresponding Efidry humidity sensor connection.
The combination of both units enables the cross-linkage of all device data incl. real-time remote monitoring of system status and drying progress.
Conforming to MID and MessEG
The Qube+ comes equipped with a MID-compliant energy consumption meter. To satisfy the MessEG regulations the service socket is moreover fitted with Trotec-PlugSafe, so it can be safely sealed both with an inserted plug or when shut.
In addition to the integrated service socket, where you can quickly and easily connect a condenser dryer or drying control unit, the Qube+ houses a threaded connection of 50 mm 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 (see "Investment protection for your drying devices").
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 > 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+ automatically switches back to regular operation if the temperature level decreases. However, if the temperatures remain at a critical level over a period that is too long, the device as a consequence is switched off completely for its own protection.

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.
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.
One device capable of doing everything that is necessary for insulation drying – the Qube+
Performance-optimized energy consumption
Unlike conventional side channel compressor turbines, the Qube+ turbo engine'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.
Turbo motor with adaptronic power control
The Qube+'s four-step variable turbo engine 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 Qube+ is automatically regulated to the optimum air flow rate.
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 at 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!
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.
Investment protection for your drying devices
Drying water damages with more than 35 degrees reduces the lifetime of the dryer to less than 35 %
With this simple "rule of 35" you can easily and yet significantly increase the lifetime of your drying devices!
At extremely high humidity levels and simultaneously very high temperatures particularly refrigerant dryers are quickly brought to the limits of their capacity (red range).
This is however not a question of component quality, but pure physics, which applies to all refrigerant dryers on the market regardless of the manufacturer.
Whilst at a moderate humidity level of about 70 % RH most professional condenser dryers can operate in temperatures of up to 35 °C without difficulty, very high humidity values at a simultaneously high room temperature cause considerably more energy to be contained in the humid room air, which then also has to be "worked off" by the refrigerant circuit.
Consequently, the refrigerant pressure in the system is increased enormously leading to destructive load on the compressor.
To be sure, the dehumidifiers will at first continue to operate, but noticeably above their limit "deep in the dark red range", resulting in an extremely shortened remaining lifetime.
All the same, there is no way around the application of a condenser dryer for water damage restoration in our opinion – desiccant dehumidifiers need considerably more energy to achieve the same level of drying performance and are therefore not a viable alternative, especially in terms of economics.
Hence, we would make the following recommendation for practical value protection:
You can easily extend the lifetime of your refrigerant dryer by many years, provided you always make sure that the room temperature stays below 35 °C when drying water damages!
The best way to realize this is to directly discharge warm process air through the 50 mm hose at the connector integrated at the Qube+.
Should the discharge not be an option, the insulation drying unit can also be installed outside of the room to be dried and the hose connection can be effected by means of a PlanoPro door gap nozzle.
After all, the process air of insulation dryers shares substantial responsibility for heating the room – regardless of the model or manufacturer. Therefore, the Qube+ comes equipped with a sensor-supported thermal protection function. If overheating is imminent, it first switches the device to level 1 and then – depending on the temperature profile – switches it either back to normal operation or off through sensor monitoring.
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.
At too high temperatures the moisture transport in building materials only takes place by way of diffusion anyway rather than capillary – so there is no efficient drying at temperatures above 45 °C.
