Description

Our positive displacement hydraulic accumulators are self contained sources of hydraulic power storing nitrogen gas and hydraulic oil under pressure (nominally 3000 PSI). The expansion of the pressurized gas serves to expel the oil from the unit upon demand. The accumulator contains its own reservoir to receive expelled oil from the high pressure side (self displacing).

Application

Valcor Accumulators have applications in Launch Vehicles as backup hydraulic power for Thrust Vector Control (TVC) Actuators where high vibration, large temperature extremes and corrosive fluids are present.

Why choose Valcor?

Valcor Engineering Corporation has been a leading manufacturer of Hydraulic Accumulators for Aircrafts, Helicopters, and Ground Vehicles for over 20 years. Valcor has demonstrated technical excellence by fully qualifying the first Maintenance Free Accumulators (MFAs) in the world for aircraft applications. Our MFAs are used on the latest version of the Navy fighter F-18 E/F.
