Thermal Expansion Compensation

Accumulators are especially effective when heat causes the volume of a system’s fluid to expand. In systems where “hard” plumbing is installed, an accumulator is extremely important to prevent lines, pipes and seals from rupturing due to thermal expansion of fluid.
Please enter the following information so that we may calculate the proper accumulator size for your application:

Total volume of system fluid, in gallons
Coefficient of fluid expansion  
Coefficient of linear expansion, system/pipe material  
Initial System Temperature (Fahrenheit)
Maximum System Temperature (Fahrenheit)
Initial System Pressure, in PSI
Maximum Allowable System Pressure, in PSI
