SCI Sharp Controls - One Source for Hydraulic Test Stands and Components

Accumulators, Inc.

Accumulators can take the shock out of a line when a valve closes or some other action occurs, resulting in “water hammer.” By reducing line shock, system components such as pumps, valves, hoses and fittings are not subjected to pressure spikes; thus extending the life of each of your components.

By having fully-charged accumulators integrated into a circuit, should an electrical power failure occur, the accumulators will supply enough flow and pressure to complete a cycle, close a valve or move an actuator. Using accumulators as emergency power will ensure an electrical failure does not permanently damage your system or cause other undesirable effects.

Accumulators are especially effective when heat causes the volume of a system’s fluid to expand. In systems where “hard” plumbing is installed, an accumulator is extremely important to prevent lines and pipes from rupturing due to thermal expansion of fluid. When fluids instead contract due to cooling, accumulators can make up for diminishing volume. Accumulators, Inc. accumulators and components are typically interchangeable with accumulators supplied by other manufacturers. In some cases, standard Accumulators, Inc. parts are of newer design and may not be fully interchangeable; however, we can often provide parts for older and non-standard designs.
