Steelhead Composites lightweight 6,000 psi (414 bar) bottom repairable accumulators range in size from 5 gallons (19 liter) to 30 gallons (113 liter). Lightweight composite accumulators are a superior alternative to steel accumulators for weight-restricted uses, mobile applications and industries where access is remote, elevated or limited.
These bottom repairable accumulators are Aluminum lined composite pressure vessels consisting of a fluid port on one end and a gas port on the other. The large opening in the fluid port allows easy maintenance and replacement of the rubber bladder. The bladder is pre-charged with Nitrogen gas before the accumulator is put in to hydraulic service. A poppet valve in the fluid port prevents extrusion of the pre-charged bladder. A valve on the gas port allows periodic re-charging of the Nitrogen gas.
Advanced manufacturing processes allow for fast delivery of eight weeks or less for standard sizes and twelve weeks or less for custom accumulators.
