Lago's Public Relations De-

will sponsor films for children
this year with the cooperation of
the Island Film Service. From

film will be shown each month in

initiative Lago wishes to make a
contribution towards a public
service program aimed at the
youth in our community.
Recognizing the entertainment
value of the films for children,
Lago and the Island Film Serv-
ice have selected only films with
themes appealing to children.
These full-length feature films
are: "Pied Piper of Hamelin",
"Gulliver's Travels", "Adventu-
res of Tom Sawyer", "Alakazam

revamping of Nos. 9 and 10 Pipe-

filters, the clay filters, major
turnaround of the Light Hydro-
carbons units, including the
PCAR, installation of the Light
Gasoil Hydrofiner filters and new

The new sulfur slaters that went
on stream on December 22,
1972 can solidify approximately
600 long tons of sulfur per day.

E "sulfur skaters" nobo cu a bal
den operaclon Dec. 22, 1972 por
solidifica como 600 ton di azufre
pa dia.

Sulfur Slaters, First HDS-2 Unit, Began Operation on December 22

New and up-to-date sulfur sla-
ters to solidify liquid sulfur pro-
duced by the HDS-1 sulfur
plants and later by the HDS-2
unit went on stream on Decem-
ber 22. The slaters, which make
solid and practically dust-free
sulfur, replace the HDS-1 sulfur
flakers located northeast of the
HDS pier.
The slaters are located west
of the HDS pier and down wind
from any process unit. The new
location permitted clearing the
area of the existing sulfur fla-
kers for building HDS-2 units. It
also offers a larger storage area
that can hold approximately
55,000 long tons of slated sul-
fur, stacked up to 50 ft. high.
The skaters are capable of soli-
difying some 600 long tons of
sulfur per day.
The operation of the slaters is
simple. The hot liquid sulfur
from sulfur plants is received in
a tank where it is first air-blown
for primary cooling. The liquid
sulfur is then poured on a 58-
inch wide, 60-ft. long conveyor
belt. While moving on the belt
and spreading to about 'f-inch
thickness, the sulfur passes un-

der four blowers for cooling,
while the belt is constantly wa-
ter cooled. While under the last
blower, the sulfur already begins
to solidify. It is further hardened
to slate form by passing through
a recirculating water bath. The
slate then breaks up into pieces
as it falls onto a yard con-
veyor from where the slates are
transported by means of a
stacker to the storage area.
Foundation work on the sla-
ters began on September 1 last
year. They were supplied by
Vennard and Ellithorpe, who al-
so supervised the construction
by McKee.
In charge of the project is
Dave Schmehr of Esso Research,
who is assigned to Lago's HDS-
2 Project, while Andresito Croes
is the field contactman for the
Process Department and Domi-
nico Marquez for the Technical
Department. Andresito and Do-
minico also trained some 52
HDS-1 process personnel in the
operation of the new slaters.
Work is now proceeding on
the yard conveyor and the
