SB Series Bladder Accumulators
The bladder accumulator consists of a fluid section and a gas section, with the bladder acting as a gas-proof screen. The fluid around the bladder is connected with the hydraulic circuit, so that the bladder accumulator draws in fluid when the pressure increases thus compressing the gas. When the pressure drops, the compressed gas expands and forces the stored fluid into the circuit.
HYDAC bladder accumulators can be installed vertically, at any angle, or horizontally depending upon the application. When installing vertically or at an angle, the fluid port must be at the bottom. On certain applications listed below, specific positions are preferable:
• Energy Storage: vertical
• Pulsation Damping: any position from vertical to horizontal
• Maintaining Constant Pressure: any position from vertical to horizontal
• Volume Compensation: any position from vertical to horizontal
HYDAC bladder accumulators are designed to be screwed directly onto the system. We also recommend the use of our mounting components to minimize risk of failure due to system vibrations.
Some common applications of bladder accumulators are:
• Agricultural Machinery & Equip.
• Forestry Equipment
• Oil Field & Offshore
• Machine Tools
• Mining Machinery & Equipment
• Mobile & Construction Equipment
• Off-Road Equipment
