There is a 70-80% probability that hydraulic failures can be attributed to oil contamination. In many cases, dirt particles and water are brought in from outside and continuously deteriorate the oil quality.
Due to the contamination of the hydraulic oil, there is a risk that important components such as hydraulic pumps and hydraulic valves may be damaged and no longer function properly: Hydraulic pumps and hydraulic valves may be damaged and no longer function properly. In the worst case scenario, a defect in a system-relevant component can lead to a complete machine standstill. And this downtime immediately results in follow-up costs due to production downtime, spare parts procurement, repairs, etc.
