Hi guys, i have a question in regards to lubrications inside a pump casing, everyone says it will be bad if water get into the lubricants inside the pump casing. But what exactly will happen if there is water in the lubricant? The following is what i think might happen but i am not too sure about them: 1) the water will kind of 'lessen' the viscosity of the lubricant (even though they don't mix), therefore, the pump cannot operate at full load. 2) Water and the high temperature within the pump casing will pobably promote corrosions. 3) Possible cavitation damages, because the heat generated by the shaft might evaporate some of the water inside the casing, thus causing bubble formations. Can someone please tell me what exactly will happen if water do manage to get inside the pump casing and to the lubricants? And if it is steam that gets in instead of water, would it causes the same problems or would it actually be worse than having water inside the pump casing? Thank you all!
