Improve Plant Efficiency with Plant Engineering’s 2020 Product of the Year

Named Plant Engineering’s 2020 Product of the Year, the innovative design of the NxHE has been recognized for improving plant efficiency and minimizing maintenance. FS-Curtis, a US-based air compressor manufacturer, launched its NxHE two-stage rotary screw air compressor late in 2019. The NxHE offers several benefits over a traditional single-stage air compressor, such as the power efficiency, which has been maximized.  Power efficiency has been maximized with FS-Curtis’ exclusive profile air end, centrifugal fan, and generously sized components. The NxHE compressor features the iCommand-Touch controller—an intelligent technology that features touchscreen capabilities with bright, full-color graphics. At a glance, operators can track pressure, temperature, and usage to quickly diagnose and optimize their facility’s air system. 

This FS-Curtis compressor also exclusively features eCool™ Technology, which protects critical components from compressor-generated heat, thereby extending component life and reducing downtime. This state-of-the-art technology also boasts the lowest life-cycle cost of any compressor on the market. 

The NxHE Series is available from 90-260kW with a smart internal layout designed to minimize maintenance time. It also includes easy access panels with durable powder-coated exterior and internal coating to protect the machine. SAE o-ring fittings, industrial-grade hoses, and heavy-duty piping guarantee leak-free operation. The thoughtfully designed sump tank with pivoting swing-out lid makes changing the high-efficiency air/oil separator element quick and efficient.
