Business jet customer needs speed, price, and reliability


New aircraft design calls for maintenance-free accumulators that deliver lowest lifecycle cost.

The Challenge

Our customer, an agile and prestigious business jet manufacturer, was developing a new aircraft for a premium market segment. They were seeking a suite of lightweight hydraulic accumulators that would provide the lowest total life cycle cost possible.

The Solution

Our team designed a ship-set of maintenance free accumulators based on our proven metal bellows technology.  The highly reliable, maintenance-free/service-free components were engineered to last the life of the aircraft. Working closely with the customer, we provided optimized fully qualified accumulator designs to support their aggressive program schedule.

The Results

Lowest possible life cycle cost, optimized sizing to minimize weight, high pressure capability, adiabatic design for high flow rates.
