The presence of water in a non-water-based fluid indicates contamination from condensation or an outside source. Excessive levels of water promote lubricant breakdown and component corrosion. The presence of water can be identified by a “crackle” test and reported in % volume. In applications where extremely low levels of water must be maintained, the Karl Fischer titration method is used to report water content in parts per million (ppm).
