Flexicraft Industries' Hydropad is an accumulator that eliminates water hammer and surge, while dampening reciprocating-pump pulsation. It also finds use as a volume compensator in severe applications. The unit has all-stainless-steel wetted parts, and its surge-absorbing gases are housed in a welded metal shell and sealed from flowing fluids by a non-corrosive welded metal bellows.
The Hydropad was designed for use with most chemicals and in systems having temperatures to 1200 degrees.
