Joe R. Carroll Named Assistant Process Manager

Effective August 15, Joseph R. Car-
roll became Assistant Manager of the
Process Department.
Joe began his Lago career in Fe-
bruary 1962 after having gained expe-

J. R. Carroll

rience with two U.S. Companies and
serving for three years in the U.S. Ar-
my Chemical Corps, where he rose to
first lieutenant. His first job at Lago
was as an Engineer in the Technical-
Process Division.
That same year he transferred to
the Process Department as Technical
Assistant and was promoted to Pro-
cess Foreman in 1966. In 1967, after
working several months in Technical-
Process Engineering Division as Su-
pervising Engineer, he returned to the
Process Department to work on the
startup of the Refining Division Con-
trol Center.
In 1969, Joe was assigned to Me-
chanical M&C, Instrument, where he
was promoted to Zone Supervisor in
1970. In November 1971 he returned
to Technical Process Engineering as
Division Superintendent. Since then,
he has headed several divisions in
Technical, Mechanical, and Process,
his latest assignment being in Pro-
cess Fuels Division.
A grammar and high school gra-
duate of the*Seroe Colorado School,
Joe worked briefly at Lago as an Ap-
prentice before studying in the U.S.A.
in 1952. He graduated as a Chemical
Engineer from the University of Colo-
rado in 1955. At Lago, Joe followed
many management courses. In Cali,
Colombia, he attended a Process De-

sign Course, a General Electric Com-
puter Programming Course in Phoe-
nix, Arizona, an ER&E Process Control
Course in Florham Park, N.J., and an
I.E.S.A. Executive Management Pro-
gram in Caracas.
Joe has been Board Chairman of
the International Seamen's Club in
San Nicolas for the past four years.
He enjoys working with cub scouts,
and repairing electronic equipment in
his workshop at home in Seroe Colo-
rado, or tinkering with his car. His
other hobbies include bowling and
Joe, his wife, Barbara, and their
children Bill (11), Sharon (9) and Jim
(7) spend all their vacations in Joe's
homestate, Wyoming, where he owns
a log cabin in the mountains and a
lovely summer chalet-style home he
and Barbara built in the woods last
year. For a change of scenery, they
go to the eastern part of Wyoming
where Joe and a brother jointly own
a small ranch.

Lago Students Achieve High Academic Standards

In Their Field of Study at U. S. Universities

Good news is always welcome. Especially when it comes from abroad and
concerns people from Aruba. More so, when the good news is about our young
people doing well in an educational field. And when most of these young peo-
ple are also Lago Scholarship students then the news is even better and more

Although there is no definite formula for academic success, it seems that
coming from Aruba may be significant. This was the case recently when
Laurens D. Tromp, Ricardo Wever, Johannes C. Croeze and Gladys Chemaly
were the four Arubans to graduate with honors from among 97 graduates at
the Mitchell Junior College in New London, Connecticut.

In Bowling Green, Ohio, another Lago Scholarship student, Selvia Lumenier,
also came into the spotlight when she was awarded a $100 Fred Gerlach
Award at the Bowling Green State University.

An engineering major in his third year at Mitchell's, LSF student Laurens
Tromp was the winner of three major academic prizes at the annual awards
assembly held at Clarke Center recently. He was given the George E. Wat-
ters Award as the outstanding engineering student, as well as the departmental
merit award in both math and physics, and earned his associate in science
degree with high honors.

Ricardo Wever, another LSF student, won the departmental prize in mathe-
matics, while Johannes Croeze, a LEAP student, earned the David MacDonald
Murray prize for perseverance and performance in engineering. Johannes had
been employed in Mechanical E.I.S. before leaving for the U.S.A.

These Lago Scholarship students and Gladys Chemaly were among the 29
students to be inducted into the Mitchell Society of Scholars.

At Bowling Green, Selvia Lumenier became the second female Aruban stu-
dent at the University to be awarded the Gerlach prize as an outstanding for-
eign student who has contributed positively to intercultural exchange while
maintaining a 3.0 or better academic average. A senior student, Selvia is spe-
cializing in the study of programs for deaf children.

The first young lady ever to receive this prize at Bowling Green in 1972 -
was Maria de la Caridad Maduro, also an LSF student, who received her B.S.
degree in Business Administration, and who is Lago's first female accountant
since last year.

Dominico A. Henriquez Earns Certificate,

Refund After Completion of ICS Course

In any endeavor, perseverance
plays a very important role if the per-
son really wants to succeed. Take
the case of Dominico A. Henriquez
of Mechanical M&C, Rotating Equip-
ment, who insisted on completing a
Mechanical Engineering selected
units course he began almost six
years ago. From the thirty-three em-
ployees who began the ICS course in
1969, Dominico is the third employee
to complete it.

Although he stopped studying se-
veral times during those years be-
cause of a temporary shift work as-
signment, and also because at times
he was discouraged when the les-

sons became more difficult, Domini-
co nevertheless decided he would not
drop out. He admits that he had to
put in a lot of effort to study the 52
units in his spare time, but he can al-
so tell of the great satisfaction he felt
recently when he received his certifi-
cate through the mail.

This certificate was Dominico's re-
ward in more ways than one. It also
made him eligible for a two-thirds re-
fund of the total expenses of the
course under the-Lago Educational
Refund Program.

On August 25, he was presented
this refund by Rotating Equipment
Zone Supervisor A. L. M. Connor, in
the presence of Shops & Facilities
Superintendent Guy Alexander. This
was Dominico's second educational
refund from the Company. In 1965
he got two-thirds back of the cost of
a Land Machinist Course which he
took on his own time at the John F.
Kennedy School.

An ATS graduate, Dominico Joined
the Company in 1953 and attended
the Lago Vocational School one year
before being assigned to Mechanical -
Machinist as a Machinist Helper.

Since 1971 he has been working as
an Engineering Assistant A in the Ro-
tating Equipment Section where he
has put much of his recently acquirer
knowledge into practice.

Dominico, who also followed a Ma-
chinery Alignment Course here at La-
go in 1972, does not plan to stop stu-
dying. He is still undecided which
course he will follow, but he already
knows for sure that he will try to fin-
ish it in less time.

Efficient Furnace and Boiler Operation

Is Worth $ 2.5 Million Per Year at Lago

Of all the energy consumed in a large complex refinery such as Lago, be-
tween 70 to 80% is hydrocarbon fuel that is burned in process furnaces and
boilers. The generation of power from the steam produced in large boilers
and the liberation of that heat in the process furnaces are important opera-
tions at Lago.

Excess Air Wastes Fuel

Oxygen is required to burn fuels. In the case of fired heaters this oxygen
is obtained from the surrounding air, which is either pulled into the furnace by
natural draft or blown in by large blowers. Air contains approximately 210/
Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen and small amounts of other gases.
The oxygen in the air combines with the fuel in large burners releasing tre-
mendous amounts of heat. This heat is transferred to the tubes and is ab-
sorbed by the fluids inside the tubes.
In theory, to burn a unit quantity of fuel, a certain fixed amount of air is re-
quired. In the most efficient combustion of fuel, the fuel is burned completely
with no excess air so that there is no oxygen left over. In practice, however,
a slight excess of air is always required for good combustion of the fuel. This
excess for Lago type fuels amounts to approximately 20 to 30 percent over the
minimum amount of air required. Although the goal of efficient combustion
is to keep the excess air as low as possible, operating much below the tar-
gets shown above may result in incomplete combustion of the fuel, and/or
flame impingement on the tubes which can result in local hot spots and cok-
ing. On the other hand, too much air entering the furnace causes wastage of
fuel and energy. This can and must be controlled to a minimum. For example,
assume that the amount of excess air is 100 percent over the minimum requir-
ed amount. Then approximately 20 to 30% of the excess is required for good
combustion and 70% of the excess (70 cu. ft. out of every 200 cu. ft. of total
air) is taking a wasteful ride through the heater. The air enters the heaters
at ambient temperature (approx. 83F.) The cold air is heated up to subse-
quently leave the heaters through the stack at temperatures ranging from 400
to 1450F. It takes additional fuel (energy) to merely heat up this unnecessary
air and put it back into the atmosphere. This additional energy is lost.
By adjusting the air blowers to put less unwanted, excess air into the fur-
nace or by adjusting the air registers on the burners the amount of heat loss
will be reduced.
This can also be assisted by manipulating the damper in the stack to reduce
the furnace draft. With less draft the amount of air pulled into the furnace
will be reduced; thus reducing the loss of energy to heat up unwanted air.
Unwanted air also enters the heaters through leaks. It is essential to seal
all existing leaks. Remember: All air which comes into the furnace must be
heated. Air from leaks has been a significant cause of wasted energy. An
optimum amount of excess a'r (20 30 percent) results in 4 to 5 percent oxy-
gen remaining in the flue gas going to the stack after all the fuel has been

Oxygen Measuring Instruments

Several instruments are used to determine the oxygen content in the flue
gas. There are permanent analyzers installed at the inlet to the stacks on se-
veral furnaces. These analyzers continuously show the oxygen level in the
stack gases. This allows the operator to trim the furnace whenever necessa-
ry to meet the 4 to 5 percent oxygen target. There are plans to eventually in-
stall these analyzers on all heaters.
In the interim period the operating personnel and members of the Energy
Conservation Group are using portable oxygen measuring instruments to mo-
nitor heaters which do not have permanent analyzers.

Fuel Saving by Reducing Excess Air

The furnaces in the refinery vary in size from those firing about 45 million
BTU/hour to the largest firing 370 million BTU/hour. (A BTU being the amount

Operation Eficiente di Fornu y Boiler

Tin Valor di $ 2.5 Milion pa Anja na Lago

Di tur energia consumi den un refineria grand y compleho manera Lago, en-
tre 70 cu 80% ta combustible hidrocarburo cu ta ser kim4 den fornunan y boi-
lernan di process. E generation di energia for di stoom produce den boiler-
nan grand y e liberation di calor den e fornunan di process ta operacionnan
important na Lago.

Aire en Exceso ta Gasta Combustible

Oxigeno ta requeri pa kima combustible. Den casonan di calentadornan
cendi e oxigeno aki ta ser haya for di e aire den ambiente, cual of ta ser ha-
1I den fornu door di un corriente natural of suplA aden door di supladornan
grand. Aire ta contene aproximadamente 21% di Oxigeno y 79%/ di Nitr6ge-
no y cantidadnan chikito di otro gasnan.
E oxigeno den aire ta combined cu e combustible den e kimadornan (burner-
nan) descargando tremendo cantidadnan di calor. E calor aki ta ser trans-
feri na e tubonan y ta ser absorb door di e fluido den e tubonan.
En teoria, pa kima un cantidad unitario di combustible, un cierto cantidad fi-
ho di aire ta requeri. Den e mas eficiente kimamento di combustible, e com-
bustible ta ser kimA completamente sin aire en exceso pa asina no tin ningun
oxigeno cu ta resta. En practice, sinembargo, un minimo exceso di aire sem-
per ta ser requeri pa bon kimamento di combustible. E exceso aki pa combus-
tiblenan di tiponan di Lago ta monta te na aproximadamente 20 pa 30% ari-
ba e minimo di cantidad di aire requeri. Aunque e meta di kimamento eficien-
te ta pa mantene e exceso di aire Io mas abao possible, operando much abao
di e metanan indica ariba, por result den kimamento incomplete di e com-
bustible, y/of trece vlamnan den contact cu e tubonan cual por result den
partinan cayente of formamento di "coke". Den otro caso, demasiado aire
drentando den e fornu ta causa desperdicio di combustible y energia. Esaki
por y master ser control te na un minimo.
Por ehempel, supone cu e cantidad di aire en exceso ta 100 percent over di
e cantidad minimo requeri. E ora ey aproximadamente 20 pa 30% di e exce-
so ta requeri pa bon kimamento y 70% di e exceso (70 pia cubico for di cada
200 pia cubico di e total di aire) ta hacienda un pasada di desperdicio door
di e calentador. E aire ta drenta e calentadornan na un temperature ambien-
tal (aproximadamente 83F). E aire friew ta ser calenta pa despues sali di e
calentadornan door di e chimenea na temperaturanan variando entire 4000 pa
1450F. Ta tuma combustible (energia) adicional pa simplemente calenta e
aire innecesario aki y ponele bek den atm6sfera. E energia adicional aki ta
bai perdi.
Door di ahusta e supladornan di aire pa pone menos aire en exceso, no de-
seA, den e fornu of door di ahusta e registronan di aire ariba e kimadornan e
cantidad di perdida di calor lo ser reduce. Esaki tambe por ser yudA door di
manipula e regulador den e chimenea pa reduci e corriente di aire den e for-
nu. Cu menos corriente e cantidad di aire halA den e fornu lo ser reduce; asi-
na reduciendo e perdida di energia pa calenta e aire no deseA.
Aire no deseA tambe ta drenta e calentadornan pa medio di leknan. Ta
esencial pa seya tur leknan existence. Corda bon: Tur aire cu drenta den for-
nu master ser calenta. Aire for di leknan ta un significant causa di energia
desperdiciA. Un cantidad 6ptimo di aire en exceso (20 30 percent) ta re-
sulta den 4 pa 5 percent di oxigeno cual ta keda den e gas di tubo y cual ta bai
na e chimenea despues cu tur e combustible a ser kima.

Instrumentonan pa Midi Oxigeno

Varios instrumentonan ta ser usa pa determine e volume di oxigeno den e
gas di tubo. Tin analizadornan permanent install nae e ntrada pa e chime-
neanan ariba varies fornu. E analizadornan aki continuamente ta mustra e ni-
vel di oxigeno den e gasnan di chimenea. Esaki ta permit e operator pa ahus-
ta e fornu ki ora cu ta necesario pa alcanza e meta di 4 pa 5 percent di oxi-
geno. Tin plannan pa eventualmente instalA e analizadornan ariba tur calen-
Mientrastanto e personal operator y miembronan di e Grupo di Conservacion

The equipment to brush off the un-
derwater hull to a smooth, clean finish
with practically no damage to the
heavy-duty coating is called SCAMP.
The machine has three rotating wire
brushes and traction wheels and can
cut a path of 6 feet wide. An impel-

a thrust which keeps the machine
against the hull. It can be operated
manually by a scuba-diver or remote-

ly controlled from a launch.
The cleaning operation can be com-
pleted within as little as 3 to 4 hours
or 6 hours in the case of a 150,000
DWT tanker.
This cleaning can take place while
other port activities are in progress,
such as loading, discharging or at
anchor, while the operation is being
monitored on the screen of a control
console to ensure complete coverage.
Costs are a fraction of any alternative
SCAMP cleaning of ships, especial-
ly VLCC's and MST's with steam pro-
pulsion plants, will result in substan-
tial fuel savings because with a clean-
er underwater hull the ship encoun-
ters less underwater friction and will
cover more mileage thus saving fuel.
For a VLCC, the effect of the average
speed loss through unclean underwa-
ter hull on a basis of 320 days at sea
per year is figured at 10 days trans-
portation time per year. These 10
days converted in terms of operating
cost amount to considerable savings.
The Aruba station, like all the world-
wide network of Scamp cleaning sta-
tions, operates under contract to But-
terworth System Inc. It is in charge
of Peters Divers Company Ltd. which
has a 55-ft. workboat "Mayra" and
seven employees engaged in the new
type of service being offered in Aru-
The company can also handle un-
jerwater inspections, photography,
welding, cutting, repairs and demoli-
tion work.
Since the SCAMP service began in
Aruba in July this year, the Company
has already performed cleaning of
several tankers, including such giants
like the VLCC's "Esso Europa", "Esso
Dalriada" and "Esso Provence".
