What Are Hydraulic Accumulators?
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 bladder holds a measure of air while allowing fluids from the hydraulic system to flow in as well. The incoming fluid puts the air under pressure, creating a reserve which can then be quickly expelled as needed into the hydraulic circuit.
They can be deployed in a surprisingly wide variety of roles. Roller coasters frequently use accumulators to provide the first burst of power to get the cars moving. Construction equipment can utilize them to store and release power in a number of hydraulic mechanisms. In oil rigs, they act in blowout preventers, as well as lessening pulsations which could unbalance liquid flow.
