Causes of contamination due to water

When an operating fluid looks like this … in 99% of cases there is water in the hydraulic system. The causes for this are often: – ambient humidity / rain – water from cleaning systems – spray water – new oil Mineral-oil based oils age faster when water is present in the oil, whereby the additional presence of catalytically-acting particles multiplies the speed of ageing.

The oil additives are rapidly consumed during operation and the service life of the oil is greatly reduced.

Where does the water come from

With contamination of hydraulic media by water, a distinction is made between condensation on the one hand and water ingress on the other. Water condensation is caused by temperature differences in the hydraulic reservoir. Water ingress can be caused by faulty coolers, faulty seals or leakage on the reservoir.
