Steelhead Composites AccuLite Series Low Pressure Accumulators range in size from 10 gallons (44 liter) to 40 gallons (151 liter). This unique 300 psi (21 bar) accumulator is a superior alternative to steel accumulators for low-pressure reservoirs used in weight-restricted and mobile applications.
AccuLite series accumulators are all-Aluminum pressure vessels with a rubber bladder inside. The bladder is pre-charged with Nitrogen gas before the accumulator assembly is put in to hydraulic service. A poppet valve in the fluid port prevents extrusion of the pre-charged bladder through the fluid port.
AccuLite series accumulators consist of a fluid port on one end and a gas port on the other. The large fluid port allows easy maintenance and replacement of the rubber bladder. A pneumatic valve on the gas port facilitates periodic re-charging of the Nitrogen gas in the bladder.
