The typical bladder accumulator makes use of the considerable differences in the relative compressibility between a gas and a fluid. A typical design consists of a gas proof elastomer membrane enclosed within a steel shell. The membrane contains compressed gas (normally dry nitrogen) and separates the gas from the hydraulic fluid. The compressed gas provides a pneumatic spring action to force stored hydraulic fluid from the accumulator into the system as needed.

The variety and versatility of the piston type design allows it to be utilized in over 90% of all potential applications. From a volume of a few cubic inches to hundreds of gallons, and up to 20,000 PSI MAWP, the piston type hydro pneumatic accumulator can meet the diverse needs of many industries with a standard or custom design.

Diaphragm accumulators provide an affordable means of enhancing the performance of a hydraulic system. They are suitable for storing energy under pressure, absorbing hydraulic shocks, and dampening pump pulsation and flow fluctuations. Diaphragm accumulators provide dependable performance, maximum efficiency, and long service life in a lightweight, compact design.
