  • Piston position indicator
  • Very high compression ratio
  • Customised capacity
  • Prevents disassembly while under pressure

Inspecting and testing your accumulators

Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT), a Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies member, is authorised to provide certification of manufacture and the verification signature of an Approved Inspection Authority for accumulators. To facilitate this, HFT has an accumulator certification centre incorporating an accumulator test bench to help clients comply with regulations governing accumulator usage. Accumulators should be subjected to internal and external inspections and hydrostatic pressure tests.
