What is the desired saturation level in hydraulic and lubrication systems?

​Since the effects of free and emulsified water are more harmful than those of dissolved water, water levels should remain well below the saturation point. However, even water in solution can cause damage and therefore every reasonable effort should be made to keep saturation levels as low as possible. There is no such thing as too little water. As a guideline, we recommend maintaining saturation levels below 45% in all equipment.
