Nitrogen charging steps and usage methods of accumulator

1、 Three steps for nitrogen charging in an accumulator

  1. Preparation work

Firstly, check if the accumulator meets the requirements for nitrogen charging, and then prepare the nitrogen charging tool and pressure gauge.

  1. Nitrogen filling operation

Insert the nitrogen charger into the accumulator valve, then connect the air source, open the air source valve, and let the nitrogen gas flow into the accumulator until the pressure gauge shows the desired pressure value. At this point, close the gas source valve, remove the nitrogen charger, and then quickly tighten the gas valve to prevent nitrogen leakage.

  1. Check the effect

Check whether the effect of nitrogen filling in the accumulator meets the requirements and make necessary adjustments.

2、 How to Correctly Understand and Use Accumulators

  1. Basic principle of accumulator

An accumulator can be used to store fluid pressure energy. When the fluid is pumped into the accumulator, the accumulator compresses the gas, stores the pressure energy of compressed air or nitrogen, and releases it when needed.

  1. Usage of accumulator

During the use of an accumulator, the following points should be noted:

(1) Accumulators must be installed and used according to design requirements to ensure the stability and safety of the equipment.

(2) Before inflation, it is necessary to check whether there is any other pressure inside the accumulator. If there is, it needs to be completely released first to avoid danger caused by excessive pressure.

(3) During the inflation process, it is necessary to use professional inflation equipment to prevent gas leakage and other unexpected situations.

(4) When using an accumulator, it is necessary to regularly check its safety and effectiveness. If there is any damage or failure, it should be replaced in a timely manner.

3、 Summary

Accumulators are widely used in industrial equipment and agricultural machinery, and correct installation and use of accumulators can greatly improve the efficiency and service life of mechanical equipment. During use, it is necessary to pay attention to safety and effectiveness checks to ensure the stability and safety of the equipment.
