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

See Behind The Scenes of the ColdWater Kid

FS-Curtis and Arizona Air Compressor are proud to be the sponsor of Matt Ludlow aka Coldwater Kid. Check out some behind the scenes footage of the Coldwater Kid and the whole Top Fuel Race Team.

The Coldwater Kid Top Fuel team is heading into their seventh season of competition in sand drag racing. The Family operated team from Litchfield Park, Arizona is owned by Dwight Ludlow with his son Matthew piloting the 300” nitro-burning Top Fueler. They are three-time Dome Valley Top Fuel Shootout champions (2009, 2011, and 2013). At the 2013 Dome Valley March Madness event, Matthew piloted the Hemi-powered Fueler to his career best pass with a sizzling 2.301/162MPH blast. They also recorded the Quickest Run for Top Fuel in the 2011 race season with a 2.308/158MPH run in the final round of that season's Dome Valley Top Fuel Shootout. This team has also been featured on SPEED Channel's "Lucas Oil On The Edge" & Fox Sports Net's "Race Freaks" TV Shows during the Inaugural Dirt 300 Nitro Nationals in Albuquerque, NM. At this event, the Coldwater Kid team earned a solid runner-up finish.

Thanks you to the Coldwater Kid Racing Team (Matthew Ludlow (Driver), Dwight & Marie Ludlow (Car Owners), John Aleman (Crew Chief), and Jim Green / Charlie Starns (Crew)
