"Anyone involved in hydraulics learns that water in the system is harmful and must therefore be avoided at all costs. But where does the danger come from? What does water do in the system? And how does it even get in? These are the questions that this article and an article based on it, which will be published in the next issue, explore. First, the damage mechanisms and locations are discussed. In the following article the places of entry will be discussed."
