One of the most important industrial applications of accumulators is in the elimination or reduction of high-pressure pulsations or hydraulic shocks. Hydraulic shock (or water hammer, as it is frequently called) is caused by the sudden stoppage or deceleration of a hydraulic fluid flowing at a relatively higher velocity in the pipelines. This hydraulic shock …

Non-Separator Type Hydraulic Accumulator

The non-separator type consists of a fully enclosed shell containing an oil port at the bottom and the gas-charging valve at the top. The valve is confined to the top and the oil to the bottom of the shell. There is no physical separator between the gas and oil, and thus the gas pushes directly …
