Hydraulic oil plays a pivotal role within hydraulic systems as it is responsible for powering the system. The cleanliness of your hydraulic oil is critical as contamination will drastically shorten the life of every component in the system. Hydraulic oil and filters should be changed regularly to optimise the life of your hydraulic system.
Accounting for most mechanical failures, water reduces the lubricity of oil. When water is exposed to the high pressures found in hydraulic systems, the water droplets collapse (implode), resulting in micro jets. These create micro pitting in metal surfaces, reducing the life of the entire hydraulic system. For optimum performance benefits, there should be no water content in your hydraulic oil - anything more that 100ppm of water (0.01%) is the start of the destruction of your hydraulic system.
