What is an Accumulator and how are they used?

A hydraulic accumulator is primarily used to regulate, store, and release energy within hydraulic systems, although they can also be used as suspension and shock absorbers in some situations.  Hydraulic accumulators are available in piston, diaphragm and bladder styles. Depending on the type of accumulator, a diaphragm, a piston or an elastomer bladder separates the hydraulic fluid from gas within a pressure shell.  The incoming fluid puts the air under pressure, creating a reserve which can then be quickly expelled as needed into the hydraulic circuit.
