Bladder accumulators provide a means of regulating the performance of a hydraulic system. They are suitable for storing energy under pressure, absorbing hydraulic shock, dampening pump pulsation and flow fluctuations. Bladder accumulators provide excellent gas and fluid separation ensuring dependable performance, maximum efficiency, and long service life.

• Improves your systems efficiency
• Supplements your pump flow
• Supplies extra power in an emergency
• Compensates for any system leakage
• Absorbs hydraulic shocks
• Accepted world wide
• High/ Low temperature tolerance
• Extremely safe (cannot disassemble under pressure)
• Quick response
• Wide range of compounds for a variety of fluids

STAUFF bladder accumulators make use of the difference in the compressibility between a gas (nitrogen) and a liquid (hydraulic fluids). The bladder contained in the shell is pre-charged with nitrogen gas to a pressure determined by the work to be done. After pre-charging, the bladder occupies the entire volume of the shell. As hydraulic fluid enters the accumulator, the nitrogen is compressed and pressure is increased until the pressure of the fluid and nitrogen are equalized (balanced). As system pressure falls, the accumulator’s stored fluid is returned to the system under pressure.
