Emergency Back Up

As an emergency back up, the piston accumulator’s function is to store energy, which is available regardless of fluctuations in hydraulic pressure and provides for continued fail-safe application in the event of a loss of hydraulic power.

Piston accumulators are a long-life solution in which the failure mode is gradual, making them superior alternatives for diaphragm and bladder accumulators, which fail catastrophically.

Example applications

  • Breaking system
  • Steering system
  • Transmission
