Our Company in Brazil carried out a Programmed Shutdown intervention in 6 Turbomachines and Various Hydraulic Systems in an important Refinery.

It is noteworthy that we were hired by Service Companies that took the Scheduled Shutdown, and not by the end customer; although he was involved throughout the entire process.

The job was performed with high standards of Safety, Quality and within the time available to carry out the tasks.


We want to thank all the Lubritech do Brasil staff during the execution of these activities, as well as our clients for trusting us.

We share some photographs of our recent work during this Plant Stop.

During March, we received in South America to Mr. Todd Cass, Vice President of Reladyne Reliability Services.

In this trip, we were in Lubritech do Brasil and Lubritech Peru, we had internal meetings with our sales, operational and administrative team, and we also visited customers and strategic partners for our business in South America.

The team presented strategic and tactic plans for Brazil, Argentina and Perú, and we reviewed safety, financial, commercial and operational KPI’s, that show the strong growing of Grupo Sicelub Lubritech in the last 4 years.

We highlight all the innovative services and products that introduce to the market, mostly related with Varnish prevention and removal. All this information is in our section “News” in our web page www.sicelub.com

From Grupo Sicelub Lubritech we would like to thanks our Management Team for this visit, and also to our Team in South America for the commitment, preparation of agenda and all the presentations.

For Reladyne/Sicelub, it’s important to share our knowledge about comprehensive lubrication and the operation of LubriMist® mist lubrication systems, models CVT4 and CVT8.

That’s why, this February, Sicelub provided training to over 60 individuals from the Pemex-Refining operational staff for the “Gas Plant at Olmeca-Dos Bocas Refinery” and the “Coking Plant at Miguel Hidalgo Refinery in Tula.”

These theoretical-practical courses, totaling 40 hours, were conducted by the Operations Manager, Engineer Isaac Mendez, along with the operations team consisting of Engineer Eddy Echeverria and Engineer Odette Ojeda.

During these courses, clients were provided with information about the basic principles of lubrication, mist lubrication, as well as operational details under normal conditions and when the mist generation equipment is experiencing faults or alarms.


Sicelub Ibérico has just performed an intervention in a Steam Turbine in Spain. We are helping to increase availability and Reliability in Renewable Energy Industry.

Customer had detected an increase in changing filter elements. When we performed the root cause analysis, we realized that this problem was due to water presence causing corrosion in the material of the oil reservoir.

We designed an action plan for online filtration until next Turnaround. During the Outage, we performed a complete cleaning of the system, including mechanical cleaning of the reservoir. We removed the oil lubricant from the reservoir and filter them in an external tank. Once we completed the cleaning of the reservoir, we filled out with lubricant being sure that the ISO Code was lower than recommended by Normative and OEM. It can be here the evolution of the cleanliness.

When Steam turbine started-up, we realized that water content was higher than allowed, and we installed an Oil Purifier Thermojet for solving this new issue.
Steam turbine is now generating energy and we continue monitoring oil contamination levels, to prevent future problems.

From Sicelub Iberico we had there to Marcelino Castejón, Noelia Velarde and Ander Arenas.
We would like to say thanks to our customer for calling us!


During the months of November and December, personnel from our Company in Argentina have participated in scheduled interventions regarding Safety, within the “MAS CONCIENCIA” Culture Program, carried out by YPF in the Luján de Cuyo Industrial Complex (CILC).


Within the Safety Culture Program that has been developed at CILC since 2021, Intervention Culture is a part of the program that is exclusively dedicated to developing habits of mutual care.

Faced with the need to raise awareness that we build security among all people, we seek to promote individual responsibility, but with even greater emphasis on collective prevention.


“Once observation begins, risks begin to be seen and perceived in all areas, many of which we did not even realize were there.”


The entire work team is seeking to generate intervention habits for another person, regardless of the company, plant, and/or hierarchical level that may be exposed to an incident.


The aim is to move from a reactive model to a preventive one, with safer work environments, where we are all protagonists.


For Lubritech Argentina, as part of the Reladyne Group, this program is 100% aligned with our objectives and culture in terms of Safety. We are even taking several examples of this implementation to share it with other collaborators and Refineries that we serve in other Countries. We think that good things must be replicated, and this program is really good, and points to a cultural change.


The interventions carried out as part of this process; They have been very enriching, both for our Company and for those intervened, since the right environment has been created to analyze together the risks associated with the task that was being carried out; recognize good practices and find better ways to mitigate risks.


It is worth highlighting the complete involvement of both YPF and the Contractor Companies, at all levels, from Senior Management and Direction, to the Operators. It is more than clear that we all do Safety!

We have just completed our participation in the major event in Lubrication Reliability in the World, #Reliable Plant Conference 2023”, was performed between July 31st and August 3rd, in Orlando, USA.

Our group continues performing several projects, given the high demand from our customers. During July, we would like to share with our community information of recent services in Lubritech Peru.

We got a contract for removing water and particles in a very important Refinery. We performed services in 4 Hydrogen Compressors reaching low water levels in 4 days, and ISO 4406 Codes in 3 days. We used filtration skids of 20 GPM, using filter elements of 34” with efficiency of 99.9 for particles of 3 microns. We also used a Thermojet H-4500 for removing water.

On the other hand, we got a contract in a Thermoelectrical Power Plant for performing a filtration in two Siemens turbines.

We were able to perform the jobs reaching the highest levels of safety and quality, reaching ISO Codes in 4 days per turbine.

During august, our Company, Lubritech Argentina performed a cleaning chemical and high velocity oil flushing in a hydraulic system for a furnace in a very important metallurgical Company in the west of Argentina.

We performed a design of different cleaning circuits, using bypass and manifolds to reach every point of the system.

We used chemical products for initial stage, performing degreasing, acid removal, phosphatize, and passivation of internal of piping. Then, we performed high velocity oil Flushing using the original fluid of the system, reaching turbulent flows. We got different sample to analyze and find the ISO 4406 Code.

The Project was completed in the scheduled time. Customer provided a good feedback regarding Safety, Quality and results.

Our technicians were Andrés Yamin, César Zulatto, Josué Buozi y Nazareno Marinelli.

You can see some pictures and videos.

During July, our Company in Brazil, Lubritech do Brasile performed several trainings for Customers and employees. We do believe that knowledge transfer to our customers and employees is a key strategy for improving performance.

Early July, we did a first training session about contamination in lubricant for turbines, for several maintenance managers of a very important power plant company with more than 30 turbines in the country. Totally, more than 80 attendants were present in our training. Key topic was varnish prevention and removal in turbines.

Middle July we performed another training in an important Refinery in North of Brazil where more than 70 persons attended. Main topic was Oil Mist Lubrication for Centrifugal Pumps.

Lastly, we performed an internal training to our technicians about High Velocity Oil Flushing, Particle Counter analysis, and maintenance of Thermojet oil purifiers.

We share some pictures, and we would like to thank to Leonardo Cardoso, Valdinei Silvia, Alexandre Adao y Marcilio Oliveira for arranging and performing all these trainings.
