Charging And Gauging – Diaphragm Accumulators

We offer an extensive selection of charging and gauging equipment for our accumulators.  We are also able to help charge your in-field accumulators through our network of distributors or with our on-site service and repair program.  Please contact us for a quote on charging equipment or to set up a service appointment.

CHARGING AND GAUGING KITS FOR 3000 PSI ACCUMULATORS

3000 PSI Charging Kits
Kit with 3000 PSI Gauge (Items 1a-11)AI-CG3-3KT-SS
Kit with 6000 PSI Gauge (Items 1b-11) AI-CG3-6KT-SS

WARNING!

AI-CG3-3KT-SS and AI-CG3-6KT-SS are rated to 3000 PSI maximum working pressure. Connects to a maximum 3000 PSI nitrogen tank with a CGA 580 connection.

Do not use on accumulators with a pressure higher than 3000 PSI. It is highly recommended that a N2 gas regulator be used while charging any accumulator. Use dry nitrogen gas (N2) only.

ALSO AVAILABLE:

  • Complete accumulator repair kits
  • N2 gas regulators
  • Special order C&G kits with different connections and different hose lengths

M28X1.5 CHARGING AND GAUGING KIT

We offer two charging and gauging kits for our welded accumulators:

  • AM-CG3-000-B (3000 PSI models)
  • AM-CG5-000-B (5000 PSI models)

These charging kits require no additional tools or parts to precharge or check gas pressure on any M28X1.5 gas valve port.

CHARGING & GAUGING

Use adapter AME-CG-004 with our AI-CG3-3KT-SS charging kit. We also offer a 5/8”-18 straight thread air chuck (AME-CG-002) for all AME series diaphragm accumulators.

We recommend a nitrogen regulator to anyone precharging an accumulator. The regulator ensures that nitrogen is added to your accumulator at a safe rate, which protects the bladder from damage as well as keeps the air temperature inside your accumulator from rising during compression. Use of a nitrogen regulator is an essential safety factor.

We stock several different types of nitrogen regulators compatible with our accumulators. Please contact us for more information.

Our nitrogen gas boosters are designed to boost directly from high pressure storage cylinders to outlet pressures of up to 10000 psi. The unit ensures maximum outlet pressure fills even if the supply storage pressure drops as low as 500 psi.

The booster operates from a low-pressure, conventional compressed air source or “bootstraps,” directly from the high-pressure nitrogen supply. In the shop-air drive mode, non-contaminated outlet gas is assured through complete dual-vented separation from the drive section.

The high-pressure section of the booster is cooled by the drive exhaust gas and requires no lubrication. Valves and gauges are SS line-mounted to the booster. All items are mounted on a painted, aluminum tubular frame with carry handles.

CONTROLS INCLUDED

  • Single acting double drive gas booster configuration.
  • Automatic control to stop/restart the booster when the outlet pressure exceeds set point; pre-selected pressure up to 6000 psi (adjustable, depending on model).
  • Manual start and stop
  • High pressure air controls (HP regulator, relief valve, inlet & regulated outlet gauges and on/off valve)
  • Adjustable safety relief valve
  • Gas inlet and outlet gauges

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Dimensions: 30”L x 12”D x 12”H
  • Weight: 60 pounds
  • Maximum outlet pressure: 6000, 7500, or 10000 psi
