Such accident frequencies while

the company's eyes is the needless
pain and suffering that employees

welfare, and economic losses to the

Production, Safety Benefit

Through Group's Program
It may seem far-fetched to compare an inspector in TSD's Equip-
ment Inspection Group with a referee of a sports contest. Substitute,
however, the referee's striped shirt and whistle for EIG garb and an
inspector's array of electronic instruments and the comparison becomes
more concrete. Both a referee and an EIG inspector must arrive at in-
dependent decisions using, of course, different rule books.
It's the EIG man's job to inspect operating units and equipment so
he can recommend the necessary repairs that will make them more
efficient and safe for continued operation. Everybody benefits -the
company through a higher service factor and greater productivity, and
operating personnel through increased personal security and reduced
Because all of Lago's crude oils contain corrosive agents, including
agents natural to the crude and others present in process aids such as
acid or caustic, the need for equipment inspection exists as soon as
construction of a refinery begins. In process equipment, these agents
continuously corrode wall thicknesses of pressure vessel shells, pipe and
tubing. It is necessary, therefore, to periodically inspect refining equip-
ment to make certain that the proper corrosion-resistant materials and
adequate metal thicknesses are present to confine fluids and vapors.
TSD-EIG's inspection work is not limited to refining equipment. One
of the group's two sections is responsible for inspecting tanks, field
lines, welds, materials, safety and relief valves, mobile equipment,
tools, fire protection equipment, utility lines, power houses, compres-
sors and the like. Materials used for construction are inspected and
tested by EIG. The group reviews drawings to check material specifi-
cations and to make sure that various standards and construction codes
are adhered to. Corrosion of all kinds is continually being fought by
EIG through the testing and recommendation of new or improved mat-
erials and protective coatings.
L. R. Seekins heads the Equipment Inspection Group. Section leaders
are F. G. Frey and J. E. Wanamaker
The job isn't confined to inspection alone even though the group's
primary task i3 to keep the refinery operating safely and efficiently.
Many manhours are devoted to record keeping. Knowing what a specific
unit is 'ke through records of past performance and inspection notes,
EIG men can predict the future. They can anticipate trouble and check
it before it occurs. All the dozens of inspection techniques and proce-
dures are used toward one common end to keep the units on stream
and to minimize unscheduled shutdowns resulting from unsafe con-
ditions or failures.
During the refinery's early years, the Equipment Inspection Group
did not exist. From the time the refinery went on stream in 1928 until
1932, the year Standard Oil Company (N.J. took over from Pan Ame-
rican, there was no organized inspection service After 1932, inspection
of all cracking units and allied refining equipment was handled by
Jersey Standard's General Engineering Department, now the Esso En-
gineering and Research Company, with assistance of the Lago equip-
