  • The hydro-pneumatic accumulator stores energy in the form of pressurized hydraulic fluid and releases to the hydraulic system when demanded either immediately or intermittently.
  • A separator between the compressible dry inert gas such as nitrogen and incompressible hydraulic fluid allows the stored fluid to be discharged per the system requirements.
  • The most common types of accumulators are Bladder type which uses bladder as a separator to store gas, Piston type which uses piston as a separator between the gas and fluid chamber and Diaphragm type which uses a diaphragm as a gas separator from hydraulic fluid.
  • All three types of accumulators have their own advantages and limitations which should be considered when selecting for an application.
