Big size accumulator for lubrication
The accumulator offers a means to automatically regulate the pressure of any liquid system. Whether you’re dealing with the braking system in a car or a drilling assembly on an oil rig, you need to handle pressure correctly.
Any system that uses fluid to drive the action of something creates energy, also known as force or pressure in the system. This places the components of the system under pressure. Too much and they’ll rupture causing system failure.
Getting the right sized accumulator is essential. Sometimes you’re going to need a big size accumulator for lubrication and pressure control.
Calculating Accumulator Size
A big size accumulator for lubrication still needs to deal with pressure issues. This means knowing the pressure that your system is running at and the volume of fluid in a system. These are the main factors in calculating the size of the accumulator as it needs to be able to remove or add enough fluid to maintain the pressure correctly.
In most cases, this means working out the volume of fluid discharge by aggregating pre-charge pressure and gas volume and dividing it by the system pressure after discharge. Taking away the aggregate pre-charge pressure and gas volume divided by maximum system pressure gives you the size of accumulator needed.
So, why a big size accumulator for lubrication?
The first reason to go with a big accumulator is to add in an extra safety factor. This allows you to boost the capacity of the system safely. Large accumulators also offer better handling of heavy fluids, such as oil. This reduces the likelihood of seal failure, resulting in damage to your system.
Oversizing will mean spending more than you need but a big size accumulator for lubrication and safety is a viable option as you never know how your system requirements will change in the future.
