An Accumulator is a pressure storage reservoir that allows a hyrdraulic system to manage extreme system demands.
Cat® Accumulators store pressure, allowing the hydraulic system to use less powerful pumps to respond to temporary quick demands for pressure.
Warning: Consult your dealer for the proper procedures to relieve accumulator system pressure prior to servicing the accumulator. Failure to do so may result in injury or death.
Cat® Accumulators may be used in a variety of applications including hydraulic systems, allowing the system to manage pressure spikes, an example of which might be a heavy load. They might also be used in brake and suspension systems.
