Boiler Feed Water Pumps at H2AR, H3AR Undergo

Changes to Save Energy, Reduce Waste & Noise

As part of a continuous refinery-
wide energy conservation program,
two steam-driven boiler feed water
(BFW) pumps at Hydrogen Plants 2
and 3 (H2AR) and (H3AR) have un-
dergone changes to electric motor
drivers. The net result reduction
in refinery steam consumption and
noise abatement. This project, de-
veloped last year, had as its primary
objective the reduction of surplus low
pressure steam in the refinery. The
change made on the first unit H3AR
- late 1976, paid off the investment
in about five months. The second
unit H2AR was completed during
the unit turnaround this month.
Since there are two boiler feed
water pumps at each plant, the spare
steam-driven pump was left un-
changed. This spare pump is de-
signed to take over automatically
using steam power should an emer-
gency arise due to power failure or
low pressure in the water discharge
Before the conversions, the steam
turbine drivers utilized 410 Ibs of
steam pressure and exhausted 30
Ibs of steam. The low pressure
steam, being surplus, was vented,
resulting in wasted energy and noise
pollution. The conversion to electric
motor drivers decreases steam con-
sumption by about 6,600 lbs an hour
of 410 Ibs of steam pressure at each
of the two Hydrogen Plants. In addi-
tion, the excessive noise level in the
area has been reduced to a minimum.
The switchover of each facility took
place approximately eight weeks
during scheduled turnaround of the
units. It involved dismantling and
removal of existing turbine drivers

with about 60 feet of associated
steam lines at each unit, and the
modifications of the existing found-
ations to permit trenching and in-
stallation of conduit lines, new
switchgears and setting the electric
motors in place.
The incentive for this driver con-
version came out of a unit energy
survey done by the Energy Conser-
vation and Environmental Control
Group. Project leader for the con-
version is Calton Jackson of Techni-
cal Project Development Division.
Charged with the dismantling work
and installation of new power
supplies was N.V. Unicon, while
Lago forces did the installation of
the motor and pump alignment work.

While in college, Raffy worked for
some time as a cameraman at the

a Dutch and Spanish teacher at the
Berlitz School of Languages in
Akron and Pittsburgh. Here at Lago,
Raffy has followed the Professional
Orientation Program, the Critical
Path Method, Process Economics and
Kepner-Tregoe courses.
Raffy, who is single, is a sports
car fan. In his leisure hours, he
likes to play tennis, watch baseball
and football games and work in the
family's "cunucu" in Paradera.

The steam-driven spare pump remains
unchanged for use in case of power fail-
ure or other emergencies.
