The hydraulics system operates at something like 2400 psi pressure. Inside
the brake system "bomb" is a diaphragm with oil on one side and nitrogen
at, I believe, a lesser pressure on the other. The "bomb"
accumulates pressure by compressing the nitrogen somewhat and stretching
the diaphragm. When called upon, the accumulated pressure is let loose
incrementally to supply boosted braking in the event the engine is no
longer turning the pump to maintain pressure.
