Hydraulic Accumulators

What are Accumulators and How Do They Work

A hydraulic accumulator is a pressure vessel that performs many tasks in a hydraulic system. They are used to maintain pressure, store and recapture energy, reduce pressure peaks, power chassis suspensions, and dampen shock, vibration and pulsations.

Accumulators

Under gas pressure, accumulators store a volume of fluid that can be re-fed into the hydraulic system when it is needed. With a rise in pressure within the hydraulic system, the hydraulic accumulator collects the pressure fluid. The result: The gas is compressed. If the pressure falls, the compressed gas expands again and forces the stored fluid into the hydraulic circuit.

The Advantages

  • Energy efficiency
  • High operating reliability and long service lives
  • Fast reactions in hydraulic circuits
  • A complete range of hydraulic accumulators form a single source
  • Accumulators with in-house sealing and diaphragm development that are optimized for the particular application
  • Independent component manufacturer
