ACCUMULATORS - PISTON TYPE - 3000 PSI

The The ACCUMULATORS will fulfill your requirements for an auxiliary power source, shock dampener, system pressure compensator or other functional components for which the need of an accumulator is indicated. They are designed for 3000 psi maximum working pressure. Normal maintenance requires only the replacement of piston and end cap seals.

The Hydro-pneumatic Accumulator -- its function and advantages:

By introducing compressibility into a normally incompressible hydraulic system, the accumulator permits the storage of potential energy to do useful work. Hydraulic fluid being a liquid, has no power storage facility. Gasses, however, have a high degree of compressibility. By combining the two in controlled volumes within an enclosed vessel (accumulator) under controlled pressure, energy may be stored and utilized.

Loading the accumulator is accomplished by pumping hydraulic fluid against one side of the piston until the nitrogen gas on the opposite side is compressed to the values required by the system.

During the discharge cycle, the accumulator control valve is opened and an unfailing, dynamic work force is released in the form of kinetic energy.

Features:

  • Compact, open design allows greater capacity and hence more work output per unit with minimum size and weight. Has no internal shell or bladder to restrict volume, add to bulk.
  • Practically maintenance free. Only parts which may eventually need replacing are inexpensive rings.
  • Mounts easily on convenient brackets in any position.
  • Rugged, Dependable and Safe. Designed to withstand many times actual working pressures.
  • Operates over wide temperature range, -40 degrees F to +200 degrees F.
  • Balanced piston ring construction eliminated possibility of pressure lock.
  • Gas filler valve recessed or shielded for protection against damage.
  • Bleed-hole safety device prevents removal of end cap from charged accumulator.
  • Seals available for all hydraulic fluids and abnormal temperatures.
