Pressurized Container Becomes

Bomb When Near Source of Heat

An uncommon accident occur-
red some time ago in a Seroe
Colorado home when a small
fire broke out in a kitchen cabi-
net following a small explosion,
scattering about some flying ob-
The fire was apparently trig-
gered by flammable material
leaking from a pressurized can.
It is believed that the flammable
vapors were ignited by the
stove's pilot light about two
feet away from where the can
was stored.
Since there were more pres-
surized cans in the cupboard,
the heat caused some of the
containers to explode, sending
one crashing into the ceiling.
No personal injury was caused
and the fire was put out soon.
It is not known why the ori-
ginal can leaked. This could
have been due to a faulty can
or the can might have been ex-
posed to excessive heat or a
corrosive material may have

eaten a hole in the can. An ex-
posed hot water pipe was loc-
ated in the cupboard and it is
also possible that the can was
in contact with it and became
The above experience prompts
some precautions:
(1) Keep spray cans as far away
as possible from sources of
ignition, such as a gas stove
or electrical equipment
which might generate a
spark, such as a toaster, etc.
(2) Store pressure cans away
from sources of heat, includ-
ing the sun.
(3) Don't place pressure cans
close to any acidic material.
(4) Where possible, store pres-
sure cans containing flam-
mable material outside the
(5) Be on the alert for persis-
tent smells that might come
from leaking spray cans con-
taining detergents, insectici-
des or the like.

Luckily this was the major damage caused by the exploding pres-
surized can in a Seroe Colorado home. The fire was limited to the
kitchen cabinet.
Afortunadamente esaki tabata e mayor danjo causa pa e bleki bao

New Salt Driers
Soon the Oil Movements Div-
ision will put on stream a set of
two new salt driers and two
new clay filters west of the Gas-
oline Pumphouse. The four ves-
sels, all rising 30 feet high and
10 feet in diameter, will add
30,000 barrels a day capacity to
the existing train of two salt
driers and two clay filters with
equal capacity.
Strange as it may seem to
non-technical people, oil refin-
eries use real rock salt and clay
to help improve the quality of
jet fuel. The salt driers are filled
up to about 25 ft. with rock salt
in pellet form. The clay filters
are also filled up to about that
same level with clay, which looks
much like the Aruba sand but is
much lighter and finer.
The salt is used to remove
any water that may be present
in the kerosene jet fuel while
the clay serves to remove parti-
cular matter and undesirable or-
ganic material from the kerosene
before it is stored in special,
epoxy-coated tanks. Through

ing facilities the Milli Pore Color

Your Questions

For Answers: Dial 5 For Questions: Dial 3500

Q. We would like to know If it
is true that Lago is bringing
back the Refrigeration Sec-
tion of the Electrical Depart-
ment. Because I hear a lot
of rumors around. Is it true?
Thank you.

A. There are currently no plans
to re-establish a Refrigera-
tion Section. However, this
area is constantly under
study to determine the opti-
mum method of performing
the required maintenance.

Q. I would like to ask Manage-
ment how come we as Lago
operators in such a large
company never have gone to
assist other refineries as
TOA's, since many of the
TOA's who came for the
startup at Lago have less
service and experience as
operators, in my opinion. Yet
they have left their country
to assist different refineries.
Is It that Lago has no confi-
dence in its operators, or Is
It because they are no good?

A. For the startup of Lago's
Phase I Project, a number of
TOA's were brought in be-
cause of their specific unit
know-how, rather than their
overall operating experience
level. Also, they were need-
ed to help fill the temporary
additional work load necessi-
tated by the startup. Lago has
not to date been requested
to furnish a corresponding
type of startup operator as-
sistance to an affiliate. How-
ever, we recently sent an in-
strument technician to assist
with the startup of new units
at Trecate, Italy.

Q. A question about safety: Is
Management aware that at
the Hydro Plant where they
have moved an old compres-
sor, there i right now a
hole like a swimming pool,
about three feet deep, open
without rope surrounding IL

It's dangerous because one
can fall in it at night and
break both legs. If I'm not
mistaken, there are safety
slips and tickets for covering
up this hole. Do something
to protect the lives of others.

A. We were aware of the pit re-
sulting from removal of a
compressor and had definite
plans to fill up the pit and
level the area. However, other
emergency situations inter-
fered with allocation of man-
power for the job and, there-
fore, the delay. The situation
has now been corrected.

Q. We would like to ask Man-
agement the following ques-
tion: Why doesn't the parent
company, Standard Oil Com-
pany of New Jersey, Invest in
an Esso Hotel In Aruba as
the parent company is now
doing in several European
countries? If Standard Oil In-
vests in such a hotel in Aru-
ba, It will really show its ap-
preciation for the people in
Aruba, and at the same time
contribute to the further dev-
elopment of tourism on our
Island. This would Indeed be
a very important public rela-
tions gesture on the part of
Esso to build a hotel in Aru-
ba. Based on available sta-
tistical data, it seems that an
investment of this kind would
be economically justified con-
sidering the gradual and con-
stant increase of tourism in
Aruba. Please investigate this
matter and let us have an
answer on this very Impor-
tant proposal, as soon as

A. The Standard Oil Company of
New Jersey, now Exxon Cor-
poration, built Esso Motor
Hotels in Europe to promote
automotive travel through
Europe. Also at the time the
Motor Hotels were built, the
parent company was seeking
investment opportunities out-
side of the oil business. Au-
tomotive travel is very limited
in Aruba and, in addition, the
oil business investment re-
quirements have gone up so
rapidly that the company now

P. Nos kier sabi si ta berdad cu
Lago ta treclendo bek e Re-
frigeration Section di Electri-
cal Department. Pasobra ml
ta tende algun rumor ta corre
rond. Ta berdad? Masha

C. Actualmente no tin plan pa
re-establece un Refrigeration
Section. Sinembargo, e topi-
co aki ta constantemente bao
studio pa determine e me-
todo optimo di haci e man-
tencion requeri.

P. Mi kier puntra Gerencia ta di
com nos como operator di
Lago den un compania tan
grand nunca a bal pa yuda
otro refinerianan como TOA,
slendo cu hopi di e TOA's cu
a bini pa e startup na Lago
tin menos servicio y menos
experiencia como operators,
den ml opinion. Y toch nan a
laga nan pais pa yuda dife-
rente refinerianan. Esaki ta
pasobra Lago no tin confi-
anza den su operatornan, of
ta pasobra nan no ta sirbl)

C. Pa e startup di Lago su pro-
yecto Fase I, un cierto canti-
dad di TOA a ser treci aki
pa motibo di nan saber ariba
un cierto unidad specific, no
necesariamente pa nan nivel
di experiencia den operation
total. Tambe, tabatin mester
di nan pa yuda cu e gran
cantidad di trabao adicional
y temporario cual tabata ne-
cesario pa e startup.
Te awor Lago no a ser pidi
pa manda un correspondiente
tipo di asistencia di startup
operator na un afiliado. Sin-
embargo, recientemente nos
a manda un tecnico di in-
strumentacion pa yuda cu e
startup di unidadnan nobo na
Trecate, Italia.

P. Un pregunta tocante dl segu-
ridad: Management to na hal-

needs all available funds for
investment in the oil busin-
ess. Since the question was
asked, the company has an-
nounced that many of the
Esso Motor Hotels in Europe
have been sold.

tura cu na Hydro Plant ca-
minda nan a move un com-
presor blew, cu awor tin un
buracu manera un "swim-
ming pool", como trees pie
hundo, habrl y sin cabuya
rond di die. El ta peligroso
pasobra un hende por cay

ety slips y tickets pa cubrl e
buracu ski. Haci algo pa pro-
teha bids di otronan.

C. Nos tabata na haltura di e
buracu cual a result di e ki-
tamento di e compressor y
tabatin plannan definitive pa
yena e buracu ey y nivela e
lugar. Sinembargo, otro situ-
acionnan di emergencia a in-
terferi cu e reparticion di tra-
hadornan pa e trabao y, pe-
sey e tardanza. E situacion
aki awor a ser remedial.

P. Nos lo kler had Gerencia e
siguiente pregunta: Pakiko e
companla principal, Standard
Oil Company di New Jersey,
no ta inverti den. un Hotel
Esso na Aruba manera e

Mechanical Tradesmen Get Familiar

With New Handy Lifting Equipment

Illustrative of the Mechanical
Department's continuing training
program is the effort currently
under way to acquaint trades-
men with the operation of a new
Carrydeck lifting equipment.
The Carrydeck is like a chain
block on wheels which trades-
Imen can take along practically
anywhere they have some light
pieces of equipment to lift, such
as pumps, motors and other
The new lifting equipment is

G. Sundal Accepts

Transfer from Lago to

Esso Standard Libya
George S. Sunday, until rec-
ently a senior engineer at Lago,
was transferred to Esso Stand-
ard Libya, Inc. last month. His
new assignment in Tripoli, Libya,
is that of staff engineer-design
in the company's Technical &
Construction Department.

A holder of a bachelor's de-
gree in mechanical engineering
from the Brigham University in
Utah, U.S.A., Mr. Sunday started
at Lago in January, 1969. His
first assignment was that of en-
gineer in the Mechanical Engin-
eering Division. He was promot-
ed to senior engineer in June,

Shortly after the formation of
the Environmental Control Sec-
tion in Lago's Technical Depart-
ment, Mr. Sundal transferred to
this section in May, 1972 as sen-
ior engineer. He has held this

designed for general lifting and
carrying up to five tons on its
deck. Where a regular chain
block cannot be used or is dif-
ficult to install, the new Carry-
deck can be quickly moved into
place. It is especially useful in
cramped spaces where its lift-
ing radius of 16 feet can save
much time and permit more ef-
ficient operation.

Approximately fifty tradesmen
representing all crafts are cur-
rently scheduled to receive in-
struction in the operation of this
new equipment. Under direction
of M&C Training Coordinator
Albino Yarzagaray, Estanislao
Koolman is conducting the prac-
tical training at the Edeleanu
Plant area. Along with this train-
ing, the tradesmen also receive
an operating manual for the
Carrydeck and a lifting signals

position until his

Last Year's Rainfall

Was at a Low Level
The total rainfall of 11.01 in-
ches for 1972 again marked a
low level, compared with the
previous low rainfall years in
the past decade: 1968 with 10.46
inches, and 1964 with 7.87 in-
Noteworthy in the rainfall sta-
tistics is that since 1960 the
total rainfall shows some regul-
arity, with a three-year cycle of
relatively high rainfall each time
