Refinery-Wide Insulation
Thermal insulation at Lago is no-
thing new or unusual. In an oil in-
dustry such as ours, where heat is es-
sential for efficient operations, it is
imperative that heat loss be reduced
to a minimum. Heat loss represents
wasted fuel, and wasted fuel is trans-
lated into cost. To prevent this heat
loss, steam lines, hot process lines
and process vessels containing hot
products must be blanketed. This
covering up of vessels and other hot
equipment with protective material is
called thermal insulation.
With thermal insulation, heat radia-
tion is slowed down to the extent that
it is not harmful to operating person-
nel, equipment or instruments in the
surrounding atmosphere. One of the
main reasons, however, to keep the
heat inside a vessel is to maintain
the required temperature necessary
for efficient processing operations. If
this heat is lost, more heat must be
aded with the result that more fuel
must be fired like in the case of
furnaces to obtain temperature sta-
To combat this waste of vital ener-
gy, the Energy Conservation Group, in
a renewed effort to provide maximum
efficiency of our processing plants,
embarked on a massive, three-step
refinery-wide program mid-1975 to up-
grade all existing insulation and to
add insulation to all bare, hot surfa-
ces. To accomplish this, an Insula-
tion Group was formed consisting of
twelve Building Tradesmen under su-
pervision of a Mechanical M&C Su-

Upgrading Boosts Efficiency of Lago's Operations

pervisor. Working in close coopera-
tion with an Energy Conservation
Group coordinator and a Process re-
presentative, this group set out early
this year on the first step of the pro-
gram. This step covers Pipestills
5, 6, 7 and 8 and the tar, pitch and
fuel oil lines immediately behind these
The first unit handled was Pipestill
No. 8. Because certain hot lines can-
not be insulated while the unit is on
stream, several men are assigned to
handle these lines whenever a unit is
down for minor repairs or for a sche-
duled turnaround. The work consists
of removing and renewing old, oil-
soaked and deteriorated insulation,
while all bare valves (of 1500F or
more), heat exchangers, pumps, man-
way covers of vessels are insulated.
Under-insulated lines are rewrapped
with thicker material ranging from
11/" to 3" thickness.
There are four basic types of insu-
lation material on the market:
1. Fibrous, such as glass wool, hair,
felt which mostly come in blan-
ket forms;
2. Granular, which are calcium sili-
cate or 85% magnesia moulded
into flat or curved blocks;
3. Cellular: these include foamed
rubber, foamed glass or plastic,
4. Reflective type: such as alumi-
num sheeting or foil used as ri-
gid or semi-rigid jackets or coverings.
In the refinery-wide insulation pro-
gram the blanket and block forms are

more widely used. They come in a
variety of thicknesses, some of them
pre-moulded in semi-cylindrical sec-
tions, especially used on large dia-
meter pipelines. The insulation ma-
terial selected for each area is based
on the following characteristics : moi-
sture deterioration, stability of its di-
mension at high temperature, the ease
of fabrication and handling, resistance
to vibration, its chemical contents and
sturdiness. On irregular areas, a mas-
tic, or special-type paste of protective
weather coating is used. On regular
lines, aluminum jackets serve as the
weather seal. These barriers prevent
moisture from penetrating through the
insulation and ruining its ability to
stop heat loss.
One of the very important aspects
of the insulation Program is the team-
work and the productivity of the Insu-
lation Group.
Their daily work consists of erect-
ing scaffolding, removing old insula-
tion and reinsulation of "hot" areas
while at the same time maintaining
good housekeeping. This job invol-
ves careful measurement of the ves-
sel to be insulated and cutting the
material in to the size and dimensions
required. The forms or blankets in
the correct size and shape are then
strapped to the equipment with wires
supported by nuts. After the wea-
therproof seal has dried, the final job
calls for re-stencilling the equipment
with their serial numbers.
The insulation done now is expect-

the insulation, care must be taken not
