One thought on “Compensators and/or accumulators: Are they used in cryogenics?

  1. I don’t know that accumulators, in the classic sense, are used in cryogenic systems. But there are a lot of uses for them in the same general sense, for example for damping out the vibration of a pulse tube or GM cooler to a cryostat that is due to the pressure wave produced by the compressor. The pressure lines between the cold head and compressor are therefore long bellows lines. Bellows are also used a lot to provide mechanical compliance between parts that need to be hermetically sealed, but it seems your company is interested in a particular application.
