When calculating the accumulator gas volume, the most important parametres are: Pressure, volume and temperature. In the past these were used in complicated and unwieldy equations to calculate the required accumulator size.
In 1997 HYDAC launched the ASP - Accumulator Simulation Program. Years of experience, continuous improvement and the inclusion of new functions has turned ASP into a calculation software which enables the user, with great accuracy, to simulate the behaviour of accumulators.
HYDAC has completely revised it's calculation software ASP and is now proud to present ASP 5.0
In addition to being totally re-designed, the ASP 5.0 program has two new program sections and is now no longer three-dimensional, but five-dimensional in structure:
- Simulation, with the well-known advantages but with a completely fresh appearance and additional visual representation of the most important parameters,
- Pressure shock damping, clearly arranged in one program window,
- Pulsation damping, including corrected pump factors, also presented in a clear program window and the new programs:
- Volume compensation and
- the integration of the stand-alone, simplified software ASPlight, also from HYDAC.
