How to Care for your Hydraulic Accumulators?

When learning how to care for your hydraulic accumulator one should always know as much about their product as possible. While accumulators are all about storing and distributing energy that also have functions that can help with shock absorption and many other key features. Your unit should be serviced and tested often to ensure it is running smoothly and effectively.

When looking at gas powered accumulators you will have the pick of three; bladder, diaphragm and piston, with bladder being the model that most people gravitate towards. For beginners or people who want a accumulator that requires less work, the bladder accumulator is a great option.

When you flip this, and you look at the piston version, their tolerance for pressure is astronomically higher. A perk of these accumulators is their ability to be mounted in any position which makes them an easy product to incorporate into a preexisting rig. Diaphragms , on the other hand, are better at handling pressure but can only hold a very small amount of it compared to the other two models. Like with most products, there will be pros and cons to each option.

Some of the options listed require more maintenance and other require more precise measurements. While most accumulators can last up to twelve years if kept up, life cycle should always be questioned when purchasing one of these units. The best thing that someone can do is to get to know the equipment they are using on a daily basis and make sure that they are keeping their products as up to date as possible.
