Bladder accumulators are constructed of a composite fiber shell over an aluminum liner, making them approximately one fourth the weight of steel accumulators. They come in seven standard sizes from 5 gal (19 l) to 30 gal (113 l), all with maximum operating pressure rating of 6,000 psi (414 bar). The lighter weight reduces shipping cost and reduces vehicle weight in mobile applications. Installation cost is also reduced by eliminating the need for heavy lifting equipment in many applications.
