The EPE bladder is made by two different and separable parts.
One is the rubber bladder of which the main feature lies in an original and well developed process that allows the construction in a single piece. The second part is the gas valve assembly that is seal connected on the bladder mechanically. This unique method allows to seal connect on the same bladder different types.
THE GAS VALVE used in the EPE accumulators is made of phosphated carbon steel, in the following three versions:
S= STANDARD. For capacities from 0,2 to 55 litres with inflating valve 5/8” UNF.
This valve can be supplied with Ø B and special inflation connec-
ST = TRANSFER. Suitable for use with the accumulator connected to
one or more additional nitrogen bottles. For capacities from 5 to 55
SL = LIQUID SEPARATOR. It is used when a liquid is also inside the
bladder. For capacities from 0,2 to 55 litres.
UPON REQUEST, all the valves can be supplied with chemical nickel coating 25 μm or 40 μm. (other thickness to be specified) or in stainless steel.
