Lubricant oil can be used as a thermal transfer fluid, commonly known as Hot Oil; in different applications in Gas Production Plants, Asphalts heating, Termosolar Power Plants among others. This fluid usually works as 400 °F.

Sicelub Lubritech Group has background performing High Velocity Oil Flushing Services in Hot Oil System, when a fluid change is scheduled.

The innovation from our company is that we can perform on line filtration, at operational temperature with the following benefits:

  • It is no necessary to stop the system, which optimize production.
  • Fluid life is extended due to the contamination removal.

Firs job we performed in Argentina is an online Filtration to a Hot Oil System with 90,000 liters of fluid in a Gas Production Plant in the south of the country. We used a 100 GPM filtration skid, able to operate at high temperatures (up to 660 °F), and using filter elements with different β factors.

The Service was performed in Tierra del Fuego, parallel 52 South; for 15 days, starting with ISO Code of 26/24/21, reaching ISO Code 15/14/11, improving cleanliness in more than 500 times.

Our technicians involved in the job were Daniel Perez, Marcos Herrera, Andres Frezzini, y Rodrigo Coppiarolo; reporting to Martín Videla.

We would like to thank to our Customer and our team for their commitment. We share some pictures, and if you want to have additional information, please reach us at; send an email to; or write a WhatsApp message to +34 616 54 70 86.

January is usually a summer holyday month in Argentina and Brazil. In our Company, we have been working in both countries, and we want to share with you our news!

In Brazil, we performed a very important job in a big chemical plant in north of the country. The job was High Velocity Oil Flushing to an Alstom Turbo Generator. We performed cleaning in lubricating, control and jacking systems. Total of lubricant oil is 3,500 Gallons and for the service we used a 2,200 GPM unit, and Thermojet Oil Purifier.

We prepared and Engineering for bypasses and we were able to complete the scope before lead time. Our services were leaded by Alexandre Adao with other 3 lubrication technicians.

In the case of Argentina, we were performing the service in a Steel Mill Plant, where we performed Chemical Cleaning and High Velocity Flushing Services. We finished the job in the scheduled time. You can see a picture of “before” and “after” the cleaning.

We would like to thank to our Customer and our team for their commitment. We share some pictures, and if you want to have additional information, please reach us at; send an email to; or write a WhatsApp message to +34 616 54 70 86.

Lubritech Perú has successfully completed a Service of reservoir cleaning and lubricant Filtration in TG-01 in a Thermal Power Plant in Perú. More than 3,000 Gallons were extracted from the reservoir, filtered, and added to the reservoir after cleaning. In the attached pictures, dirty is observed in the reservoir prior to cleaning.

When an ISO Code of 16/14/10 (NAS 5) was reached, the job was completed.

Under this cleanliness level start up of the turbine is safer and operation is reliable, according to recommended by ASTM D-4378.

For this job we had 3 lubrication technicians, a 50 GPM filtration unit with β3 higher than 1,000.

Even during January, the team performed a Filtration to an Elliot turbo compressor in a Refinery to reach an ISO Code of 16/14/12. All the process was according to ASTM 6439-99, and we used a 20 GPM equipment with β3 higher than 1,000.

We would like to thanks to our team in Peru, and we go for more!

Grupo Sicelub Lubritech has been working in Renewables Energy since some years ago. We have performed services in Wind Turbines in Argentina and Brazil, and now, we continue working with Steam Turbines in Concentrated Solar Power Plant Industry. We have just finalized a service in Spain.

Solar Energy can be generated by two different processes. You probably are more familiar with photovoltaic cells, where energy from sun is directly converted into an electrical current.

There are other plants, called Concentrated Solar Plants (CSP) where Energy from sun is used to Heat up a fluid (hot oil) that is used to generate steam and move a steam turbine. This is the case of our recent service in Spain. We performed a filtration Service to a lubricating oil system of more of 6,000 Gallons of Oil in a very important Plant in Andalucía, Spain. The job was in a Nuovo Pignone Steam Turbine of 50 Mw.

The Service started when we drained the oil to an external tank, performed filtration until reach a lower ISO 4406 Code. We cleaned the oil reservoir and filled with filtered oil. Then, when oil started to circulate by the entire system, we continued with the filtration until reach ISO 16/14/12.

Using this procedure, we secured a safe start up of the turbine, and more reliable operation until the next turnaround, according to best practices recommended by ASTM D-4378.

On this jow, we had 2 field technicians, a filtration skid of 80 GPM using filter elements 34” length.

We also applied a high standard safety procedure to enter in the confined space, gas detector, fans for having fresh air. Beyond technical knowledge in lubrication, we are also specialist in Safety and Environmental.

We would like to thank to our Customer and our team for their commitment. We share some pictures, and if you want to have additional information, please reach us at; send an email to; or write a WhatsApp message to +34 616 54 70 86.


In last months, our Company in Spain, Sicelub Ibérico, has performed several high velocity flushing services in different rotating equipment in a very important Refinery in Spain. Historically, we haven’t performed services in that Refinery because logistic conditions that increased our cost. During 2022, we put actions in place to improve these conditions and being more competitive. We have hired high qualified technician there and optimized our freight costs.


We have performed services in centrifugal compressor, air compressor and reciprocating compressor.


  • Centrifugal Compressor in Lubricants Plant. The system had high cleanliness and particles, we started with ISO Codeo f 22/21/17 and just in 26 hours of Flushing we were able to get ISO 16/14/11.


  • Air Compressor in Auxiliary Services Plant. This system was in a maintenance tournaround and a flushing was performed. We used Re > 000 and performed the cleaning just in 12 hours, decreasing the ISO Code from 23/22/16 down to 16/15/12. We also performed Flushing in the coolers.


  • Reciprocating Compressor in Coker Unit. The system had problems related to metals, and during the Flushing we improved from 23/22/21 down to 15/13/9, in les of 24 hours, including cleaning of coolers.


Since we were present in the refinery, we were able to sampling critical equipment and provide good information to our customer for their predictive maintenance agenda.


Commercial Management was performed by José Julián Gómez, and Operative Job oversaw by Aitor García, with our field technicians Javier Villar and Stan Ursaki. Our administrative and EHS staff supported the team in the field.


We would like to say thanks to our customer and recognize the job of our team. You can see some pictures below!
