Compact accumulator tank to quieten your 12v water pump immediately and small enough to fit into a tight spot. An accumulator tank will give you a smoother water flow, quieter operation, will save you battery power and will extend the life of your pump. An accumulator tank (also known as a pressure tank) is a must for every setup!
This quality Escaping Outdoors accumulator tank will hold a store of pressurised water to reduce unnecessary pump cycling, pulsation and water hammer when installed between the pump and the tap. It can be fitted to new or existing pressure pump system installations.
Recommended for coffee carts to protect your coffee machine and pump, for food vans or in your boat or caravan.
HOW THE PRESSURE TANK / ACCUMULATOR TANK WORKS
a. Accumulator tank contains a factory charged air cushion. This is usually 10%.
b. When the pump starts, water enters the accumulator reservoir. At maximum pressure the system is filled. The pump then shuts off.
c. When water is demanded, pressure in the air chamber forces water into the system. The pump stays off until minimum pressure is reached, then the pump starts and runs until cut-out pressure is reached.
