Bladder Accumulator

The bladder accumulator is comprised of pressure resistant shell, elastic bladder, gas valve and fluid port (anti-extrusion) assembly. BUCCMA bladder accumulators are available in a wide range of sizes and pressure ratings, and are compatible with a wide range of fluids, temperatures and permeation requirements. Their design makes them compatible for both pulsation and oil storage.

Piston Accumulator

Buccma Piston accumulator use a sealed piston / barrel arrangement to separate gas and fluid, giving it a long service life, compatibility with extreme ambient temperatures. Although Piston Accumulators leverage nitrogenā€™s compressibility to the fullest, they are not very sensitive to pulsations.

Diaphragm Accumulator

Buccma diaphragm accumulators are constructed by electron beam welding two hemispherical shells together, and a rubber diaphragm is set between these two halves to separate gas and fluid. The Diaphragm Accumulator has a light weight to volume ratio and can be used in harsh conditions. They are very sensitive, making them ideal for pulsation dampening, however their gas pre-charge is limited.
