Wind Energy

Accumulators are used extensively throughout the renewable energy industry, especially in wind energy. Giant power-generation windmills typically use multiple hydraulic accumulators to control the pitch of the individual blades for maximum efficiency, to control the yaw of the windmill to ensure the turbine is pointed towards the wind, and in the braking systems that prevent the windmill from spinning too quickly during gusts and storms. Bladder, diaphragm, and piston accumulators are all typically used in windmills, depending on the application and the size of the windmill.

Accumulators, Inc.’s products are interchangeable with the accumulators used in the majority of the world’s power-generating windmills, and we can help you determine the suitable accumulators or replacement components for your system.
