Hydraulic accumulators improve performance and reduce cost and maintenance. Composite accumulators weigh less than their steel counterparts, making lighter Class 8 vehicles for improved fuel economy or the ability to carry heavier loads. Accumulator/strut combinations for passive, semi-active and active suspensions provide 90% better overall reliability and a 50% improvement in operator productivity. Custom-engineered, fully integrated, multi-function hydraulic accumulator systems provide reduced plumbing/mounting.
