The shell is manufactured from a high strength alloy steel. The non-repairable electron-beam welded construction reduces size, weight and,ultimately, initial cost.
The flexible diaphragm provides excellent gas and fluid separation. Diaphragms are available in Hydrin (ECO)compound which provides excellent service with most mineral fluids. ECO offers excellent low-temperature performance for mobile applications.
The button closes the fluid port when the accumulator is fully discharged to prevent diaphragm extrusion, a low cost alternative to more complex and expensive valve-spring designs.
SAE straight thread for easy installation and leak-free service.
Metric M28X1.5 gas valve is durable, leak-free and offers the flexibility of checking or charging the accumulator. See page 102 for charging and gauging accessories. U.S. Gas Valve is also available. See model numbering information.
