Accumulators by Olaer Fawcett Christie

Shell Forging

We can supply forge manufacturing shells (Roth) which allows us to offer designs precisely matched to the approvals required. Coupled with this, Olaer Fawcett Christie can manufacture to any worldwide design standard. This means that the customer benefits by having a product that optimizes the relevant design criteria, saving both weight and cost.

Bladder Quality

The quality of an accumulator depends on the reliability of the bladder. To ensure we use the best, our group partner Sacatec Industries produces them for us.

Each bladder is subjected to a variety of tests to ensure long term usage with low permeability for subsea applications. Material Certificates can be supplied for full traceability and 100% helium testing is available if the specifications call for it.

Stainless steel models are available in volume sizes of 0.1 to 5 litres and working pressures of up to 1035 Bar.

Diaphram Accumulators


We provide a range of diaphragm accumulators commonly used in mobile equipment and other applications where weight and space is a consideration.

There are two options within the diaphragm accumulator range:

  • Standard Diaphragm Accumulators
  • Additional Range of Diaphragm Accumulators





Hydracushions-80x180Fawcett Christie Hydracushions are non-repairable and have been specially designed for high volume, low cost applications where it is more economical to replace a unit than to refurbish it after a long service life.
