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!
