Not all fluids are compatible with every elastomer at all temperatures.
Therefore, EATON offers the following choice of elastomers:
- BN - Buna-N (nitrile)
(5º-180ºF using mineral oil)
- VT - Fluorocarbon (viton)
- BL - Butyl (-40º-200ºF)
- CW - Special nitrile blend for low temperature applications
(-40°F to 180°F)
- HL - Hydrin for applications requiring extremely low permeation.
To determine which material is appropriate...ALWAYS REFER TO FLUID MANUFACTURER'S RECOMMENDATION. Viton is a registered trademark of Dupont.
For use with certain aggressive or corrosive fluids, or in a corrosive environment, Eaton offers protective coatings and corrosive resistant materials (i.e. stainless steel) for the accumulator parts that come in contact with the fluid, or are exposed to the hostile environment.
Diaphragm accumulators by design may be mounted in any position. In systems where contamination is a problem, we recommend a vertical mount with fluid port oriented downward.
Eaton diaphragm accumulators are designed to be screwed directly onto the system. We also recommend the use of our mounting components, which are detailed on page 21, to minimize risk of failure due to system vibrations.
Eaton diaphragm accumulators are electron-beam welded and contain a flexible diaphragm that separates the gas and fluid sides.
Some common applications of diaphragm accumulators are:
- Agricultural Machinery & Equipment
- Forestry Equipment
- Machine Tools
- Mining Machinery & Equipment
- Mobile & Construction Equipment
- Off-road Equipment
