EPE Italiana BLADDER accumulators are normally made off a forged body with the end caps semi-closed where are fixed the gas and fluid valves. Inside the body fixed to the gas valve there is a chamber with airtight seal that can be of different material according to the liquid used and working conditions. The connection to the system is made through the fluid valve that is provided with a system that retain and avoid the extrusion of the bladder. In the LOW PRESSURE SERIES we have a simple anti-extrusion plate that allows big flow rates. In the HIGH PRESSURE SERIES we have the poppet valve. The bladder accumulator is the most used due to its cheapness and versatility.
For off-shore applications or aggressive environment, EPE accumulators can be provided with external and internal treatments in order to avoid corrosion or can be produced completely in stainless steel.
All EPE accumulators can be supplied with the following certifications: PED 97/23/EC, ATEX, ASME U-STAMP, ML, GOST-R, RTN, AS1210, NR-13, LLOYD'S REGISTER, RINA, Algerian passport, Tunisian passport.
