Smart and Sophisticated: The Features of NxHe Rotary Screw

Our award winning Nx series two-stage rotary screw air compressor has been ranked as the most efficient air compressor on earth! The unique features of the NxHe ensure that companies continue quality production in a cost efficient and timely manner. Not only is the NxHe designed to extend its component's life, but it's also energy saving and eco-friendly. These are only a few of the NxHe series key features.

Overall Design

Designed to save you money, the NxHe allows for easy service and little down time. This helpful design includes:

  • Easy-to-maintain oil separator
  • Sealed end face to prevent leakage
  • Independently bearing lubrication
  • O-ring face connections to prevent leaks
  • Two stage motors in one airend
  • eCOOL Technology

Two-Stage Airend

Compared to single stage compressors, a two-stage is much closer to isothermal compression. This is achieved by injecting fresh oil between the stages, which reduces the inlet temperature to the second stage. This lower inlet temperature increases efficiency by reducing the compression ratio between the stages. In addition, leakage between the rotor seals is significantly reduced resulting in outstanding volumetric efficiency.

eCOOl Tehcnology

The ultimate in system protection and reliability. This technology helps reduce thermal stress on your air compressor by:

  • Maximizing cooling airflow by removing hot air from above
  • Protects critical components from compressor-generated heat
  • Compartmentalized air flow design and oversized aftercooler
  • Extends component life and reduces downtime

iCommand-Touch

This feature offers a full-color screen graphic display to help track and capture real-time data on your NxHe compressor. This tool also helps track:

  • The air quality of your compressor
  • How long the machine has been off, running or on standby
  • Filter quality with replacement or maintenance schedules
  • Air and oil curcuits
  • Oil temperature
  • Pressure variations

What Is A Compressed Air Audit?

An air audit may be in order for your compressed air system, especially if it hasn’t been carefully examined recently. While many people focus on the initial cost of purchasing an air compressor, they often forget to factor in the cost of operating the machine over the long run. Any issue within a system can reduce its efficiency, wasting air and electricity, and thereby costing you more money.

10 Ways To Use Your Air Compressor To Save Money

Most people can use some insight on how to effectively cut costs to become more profitable because, lets be honest, air compression can be an expensive commodity if not properly maintained. Leaks and worn-down parts can reduce the pressure produced by the compressor; these worn-out seals and fractured piping can also create blowouts. Expenses could also come from unintended downtime though the loss of production, which could require emergency equipment hire. Industries also run the risk of physical damage and personal injury claims. All these instances can pile on the costs of a faulty air compressor.

Compressed air is one of the most widely used forms of energy throughout many industries, with approximately 70% of manufacturers using a compressed air system, often using more energy than any other equipment. One horsepower of compressed air requires eight horsepower of electricity. With many air compressors running at efficiencies as low as 10 percent, there’s often plenty of room for improvement. Fortunately, 50% of compressed air systems at small to medium-sized industrial facilities have opportunities for low-cost energy conservation.

This Compressor is a BEAST! – CA Series 7.5 80 gal vertical

WOW! Look at this customer testimonial on our CA Series 7.5HP Vertical Unit!  Installed in 2002 and still going strong!  Now that's trusted, dependable and reliable!  See the full review here!

2002 CA Series

CA Series compressors aren't just built to handle harsh environments - they're also available in a wide range of configurations to meet your exact application.

Simplex compressors are well suited for common applications where only one compressor is needed.

Components are selected based on durability and performance, ensuring that your CA Series compressor delivers reliable performance in demanding applications.

The Most Durable Pump Construction Available - Meticulous Material Selection Ensures Long-Term Reliability.

  • 100% cast-iron cylinders and cylinder heads
  • Long-lasting, corrosion-resistant crankshaft
  • Reduces thermal stress for increased reliability
  • Deep-finned cast-iron cylinders and cylinder head for cool operation
  • Slow-turning pump increases pump life

Industrial Design - The Most Robust Reciprocating Air Compressor In Its Class

  • Provides higher pressures, better efficiency and longer life
  • Ready to handle rugged, heavy-duty applications

Simplex

Simplex compressors are well suited for common applications where only one compressor is needed.

  • Magnetic motor starter
  • Manual tank drain
  • Oil sight glass
  • Horizontal or vertical tank configurations available
  • Factory oil filled

Duplex

Duplex compressors are ideal when there are varying demand levels during operation. By alternating demand across two pumps, a duplex compressor also delivers longer pump life. The redundant pumps ensure you’ll always have air, eliminating maintenance downtime.

  • Alternator control panel comes mounted with magnetic motor starters and thermal overload protection
  • Compressors alternate during normal operation
  • Both compressors run when system demands
  • Duplex design reduces electrical cost and eliminates downtime
  • Factory oil filled

All of our CA Simplex Compressors include:

  • Magnetic motor starter
  • Manual tank drain
  • Oil sight glass
  • Horizontal or vertical tank configurations available
