Sulfur Is More Friend Than Foe

In Industry, Agriculture, Medicine

The fuel oil processed from
crude oil generally contains sul-
fur. Because of the unaccept-
S able amounts of potentially
harmful sulfur oxide emitted
when sulfur-bearing fuel oil is
used in power plants and fac-
tories, Lago's HDS facilities
were built to reduce the sulfur
Level of fuel oil products. The
22 new HDS units at Lago reduce
W the sulfur content in the fuel
oil from 2.5 per cent to a signi-
ficantly lower level, ranging be-
of tween .3 and 1 per cent.
The hydrodesulfurization pro-
zu- cess, therefore eliminates the
sulfur oxide from the air envi-

ronment, and what once caused
toxic smoke or smog is now
converted into bright yellow sul-
fur. The sulfur plants and the
sulfur solidification and slating
facilities do the final job of
converting the sulfur into sale-
able slate form. This conver-
sion brought about completely
new processes and new units in
the oil industry.
Traditionally sulfur has been
mined. The Frasch process,
which until recently dominated
the sulfur industry, calls for su-
perheated water to be pumped
into salt domes which house the

Up or Down the Safe Way

All that goes up must come
down, is the natural law of gra-
vity or Newton's law. For
those who have to go up at
some height to perform their
job this rule also applies. There-
fore, we should try to go up the
safe way and come down safe-
ly as well.
Recognizing these facts, there
are definite and specific safety
regulations to protect workers
at above-ground levels particu-
larly where there is no firm floor
to work on.
For some jobs, scaffolds are
required and these structures
must be erected according to
specific safety requirements. For
other "high level" jobs, such as
in industry, special boxes are

used in which to go up. Some
examples at Lago are the Ali-
mak elevator, a work platform
that is lifted to the desired
height by a crane (for instance,
when inspecting a smokestack),
and the "giraffe" with its buck-
But the most common equip-
ment used both in industry and
especially at home is the lad-
der. This includes also the
stepladder that is often used in
the office.
For most jobs around the
house, the upright ladder or
stepladder is generally used for
doing painting, cleaning or re-
pair work. There are some de-
finite safety precautions, which

we all have to take to do 3uch
a job safely.
We must bear the following
in mind: The ladder must be in
good condition; we must know
how to place the ladder; we
must use the right ladder; we
must not overreach while on a
The ladder must be checked
if it is in good condition, just as
we do when using any tool or
equipment. It might be too late
to discover a crack or fault in
a rung when we are already
high up on the ladder.
How to place the ladder is al-
so important. If it does not
have a firm base and is not
placed at the right angle, we
may be in trouble. It's wise to
have someone assist to keep

an upright ladder in place.
The right ladder must be use
for the right height. In man
cases, a stepladder that is to
short is used. Too many peop
are inclined to stand on top (
the ladder when hanging cu
tains or placing a picture on th
wall or when fixing a lamp
the ceiling. It is also a bad h
bit to use makeshifts, such as
chair or small table instead
a ladder. There have been f
tal accidents just from the u
of substitutes.

Some hints that may he'

the ladder so it will not sl'
and to use a safety belt whet

must use our common sense
all times when working on la.

Water Reservoir Becomes Obsolete

After 31 Years of P.H. No. 2 Service

A landmark at Powerhouse
# 2 disappeared recently when
Tank # 301, formerly used for
boiler water service, was dis-
The tank with its peculiar
shape was elevated to provide
sufficient water pressure to the
boiler water system at the power-
house in case of failure of the
so-called "make up pumps."
Elevated on a steel structure
at 75 feet above ground level,
the tank had a 1170 barrel ca-
pacity. It measured 19 ft. in dia-

meter and with its cone-shaped
roof measured 17 ft. high.
Built in 1943 at the same time
as Powerhouse # 2, the tank
served as a water reservoir at
a time when Lago was totally de-
pendent on its own water plants
at Powerhouse # 2.
Now that the space-module
shape tank has become obso-
lete since there is an adequate
water supply from Balashi it was
removed from service and dis-
mantled by the huge Manitowoc

Looking like a rocket ready to be launched Into space is Tank # 301
until recently in service at Powerhouse # 2 as a boiler water re-
servoir. The tank has been taken down for dismantling after 31 years.

I Sulfur

(Continued from page 1)
sulfur. The water melts the sul-
fur which sinks into pools at the
bottoms of the wells. Still mol-
ten, the sulfur is forced to the
surface by compressed air.
Today, a large share of the
world's supply of sulfur is pro-
duced as a by-product of the
desulfurization process. At peak
capacity, the sulfur recovered
from oil at Lago amounts to
about 475 tons a day. Most of
this production goes to Europe
where it is consigned to Exxon
Chemical for marketing.
Sulfur, despite the bad name
it has acquired in recent years as
a polluting agent, continues to
serve humanity fruitfully as it
has done throughout its long
history. Since its discovery in
pre-historic times, sulfur has
been used for varied purposes:
the ancient Egyptians used it to
make medicines, pigments and
cosmetics; the Romans combin-
ed it with combustible materials
and created the first irrcendidry
weapon; the Chinese added
saltpeter and gave the world
During the Industrial Revolu-
tion new chemical demands
were created for sulfur with the
increase in the output of manu-
factured goods. Sulfuric acid
became" the chief outlet for this
Three quarters of this sulfuric
acid production goes into the
manufacture of fertilizers. Aside
from steel pickling and paper
processing, other applications

include paint pigment, synthetic
and man-made fibers (rayon, ny
Ion etc.) and the vulcanizatio
of rubber.
Sulfur is also useful in th
field of medicine. Sulfur oin
ments have been used in trea
ing skin disorders and sulfur
compounds are used to treat
variety of diseases. It is usef
as an insecticide or fungicide iP
the control of insects and furhii
gus disease of plants and aniu
mals. is
In the right form, thus, sulfilo!
can benefit humanity in multipl;u
ways. Sulfuric acid, one of th d'
most important and essential c
all commercial chemical sut-
stances, is employed in the me
nufacture of practically all ir
dustrial products. What wa
once a source of concern fce
maintaining a healthy and clea"
environment when burning futo
oil is now recovered and put t
use in fertilizers for growing
food for the world. Also, hiu
