Weoffer bladder, piston and diaphragm type accumulators in a wide range of sizes, bladder materials, port configurations and pressure ratings to provide optimum design flexibility. Our accumulators help to achieve improved machine performance, efficiency and reliability while contributing to lower energy costs, reduced noise levels and a reduction in hydraulic system leakage and maintenance costs.
Our accumulators offer customers the following advantages:
• Lower System Installed Costs
Accumulator assisted hydraulics can reduce the size of the pump and electric motor which results in a smaller amount of oil used, a smaller reservoir and reduced cooling capacity
• Reduced Energy Costs
Cost savings up to 33% are achievable in high performance industrial machinery using accumulators.
• Less Leakage & Maintenance Costs
The ability to reduce system shocks will prolong component life, reduce leakage from pipe joints and minimize hydraulic system maintenance costs.
• Improved Performance
Low inertia accumulators can provide instantaneous response time to meet peak flow requirements. They can also help to achieve constant pressure in systems using variable displacement pumps for improved productivity and quality.
• Reduced Noise Levels
Reduced pump and motor size coupled with system shock absorption lowers overall machine sound levels and results in higher operator productivity.
• Flexible Design Approaches
A wide range of accumulator types and sizes, including accessary items, provides a versatile and easy to apply design approach All accumulators meet a 4:1 safety requirement. In addition to the standard products described in this catalog, Eaton has the capability to provide special accumulator shells, bladders and fluid ports to meet specific customer specifications Special coatings can also be provided to resist corrosive
fluids or environments. Please contact your local distributor or Eaton representative to discuss your requirements.
1. Reduction of installed power.
Using an accumulator as an energy storage device effectively reduces the required flow rate capacity of the hydraulic pump. This results in a reduction of the installed power.
2. Emergency and safety.
An accumulator which is kept fully charged allows for instant and/or repetitive operations
as required (braking, opening of door, etc.).
3. Dampening of pulsation and reduction of noise
In order to dampen pressure changes, which are caused by the pulsation of a pump, an accumulator makes it possible, due to the low inertia of its bladder, to improve the precision of operation and to reduce the sound level of the installation.
The pressure differences caused by thermal variation in a closed hydraulic circuit are absorbed by fitting an accumulator.
5. Surge control.
Designed to protect high volume flow systems from surge and water hammer damage. In order to protect the system, an accumulator correctly sized and located in the system transforms pressure wave oscillations into liquid mass oscillations which are easily absorbed by the accumulator, bringing the pressure peak level back to acceptable levels.
6. Suspension of heavy vehicles.
On maintenance machinery, transport platforms etc., an accumulator which is connected
to the suspension chamber acts as an adjustable shock absorber.

HOW THE BLADDER ACCUMULATOR WORKS ?
The Hydro-pneumatic bladder accumulator is essentially a fluid pressure storage chamber in which. the potential energy of an incompressible fluid under pressure can be stored against a compressible force of a gas to do useful work. This stored fluid is readily available to perform a given task when called upon by the requirements of the system in which it is used. The flexible rubber bladder in the enclosed shell is precharged with a gas, such as nitrogen, to a pressure determined by the system’s working pressures and loads when the hydraulic pump forces fluid into the system pressure. The stored potential energy of the fluid held under pressure serves as a quick secondary source of energy.
