Accumulator/Pulsation Dampener Course

Our Accumulator course is a hands-on introduction to the operation and application of high pressure accumulators, undertaken in a workshop environment.

This course is designed for personnel who maintain and monitor the operation of pre-charged hydraulic accumulators on-shore, offshore or in associated marine industries. The course incorporates safety and practical aspects associated with pre-charged hydraulic accumulators and pulsation dampeners within fluid power systems. Delegates will be shown how to evaluate the pre-charge condition as well as pre-charging and test procedures.

Upon completion of the course, delegates will gain an in-depth knowledge of the operation and maintenance of accumulators, recognise the importance of good safety practices and understand the best methodology to strip down and inspect the accumulator assembly. They will understand the use of specialist equipment required for pre-charging accumulators. The practical element involves a hands-on approach allowing delegates to strip down and inspect an accumulator and a pulsation dampener. This also covers processes for checking damage or wear, and the use of best practices in pre-charging and testing of a bladder type accumulator.
