Brake accumulators are fitted on select vehicles with ABS (Anti-Lock Braking Systems). These brake pressure accumulators, along with other ABS components, assist the vehicle braking system and prevent the vehicle from skidding when the brakes are applied. The brake pressure accumulators store pressurized brake fluid, so that when required, this high pressure fluid is released to brake the vehicle in a safe and controlled stop, and prevent the vehicle from skidding. As the accumulators are used to store this high pressure brake fluid when needed, this allows the ABS pumps from not having to operate all the time and thereby leaving the brake pressure accumulator to take the bulk of the work overload, decreasing the strain and workload on the ABS pump, and increasing the lifespan on the vehicles other expensive braking components.
