Recharging Accumulators with Nitrogen. Parts required.

Until now we have always recharged our accumulators with the intensifier at our third party maintenance contractors. We have now decided to make the move to nitrogen to increase the lifespan of the units and to perform this task with another provider.

We have discovered the RM1872 page which details the parts required and specification, however I wanted to check if anyone out there has these parts available for sale locally or indeed a pre-built unit which we can simply attached to the canister.

Kind regards

My bus number (if any): RML2649, RML2697, RM1871
