How to Charge HYDAC Hydro-pneumatic Diaphragm Accumulator

Hydraulic accumulators are specifically designed to store and then discharge pressurized fluid as needed. They are classified as pressure vessels.


Hydro-pneumatic accumulators are charged with nitrogen, which is separated from the fluid by a piston, bladder or diaphragm. There are risks involved when working with high-pressure gasses and fluids.


On no account must any welding, soldering or any mechanical work be carried out on the accumulator shell. Work on systems employing hydraulic accumulators must only be carried out once the pressure in the fluid and/or the gas have been released.


This tutorial video has been prepared in order to explain the process of testing the nitrogen pre-charge pressure of a diaphragm type accumulator.
