Lago Provides Employees

With Free Subscription
To Safety Publication
Beginning with the first quarter
, issue, Lago will provide its employ-
ees with a subscription to Family
Safety Magazine, wh:ch will be
mailed directly to the homes
Published by the National Safety
Council, the magazine includes ar-
ticles and features regarding home
The decision to use the magazine
as an adjunct to the off-the-job saf-
!ety program is an effort to further
Decrease accidents in that area. Ac-
cording to M. Croes of the Safety
SDivision, the magazine is "comple-
tely authoritative and is considered
one of the best in the field for its
home safety articles."
Much of the Safety Division's ef-
forts are promoted after careful
examination of applicable statistics.
These figures have shown repeated-
ly that the same employee with a
perfect record on-the-job will go
home and perform unsafe acts or
use unsafe equipment.
One promising statistic is that the
number of accidents by family mem-
bers is decreasing. This is believed
to be a direct result of the off-the-
job program which includes film
truck presentations, speakers' bu-
I eau programs and now the regular
monthly safety report has a home
safety attachment called the "Home
Safety Review

At Esso Club Joint Meeting

Rotary, Lions Members Hear Lago-Jersey

Relationship Discussed by T. F. Hagerty
Lago's place in the worldwide structure of the Standard Oil Comp-
any (New Jersey) was the subject of Lago Corporate Secretary T. F.
Hagerty's address to members of Rotary and Lions service clubs April
15. The occasion was a joint meeting with members of Lago's executive
management held at the Esso Club.

far, the greatest costs Lago has,
and, as Mr. Hagerty explained: "It
is easy to see why manpower is so
important in the Lago cost picture."
One of the reasons for Lago's

nies such as Creole earn large
amounts of money compared to the
smaller amounts realized by refiners
and marketers, Mr. Hagerty used
mining as an example. He suggested
that his audience think of a miner

TWO GERMAN diesel generators helped power Lago's World War II effort. Diesels were
declared surplus with the addition of a slam generator at Powerhouse No. 2. Dismantling
of the huge units began last Jul>.

Two Giant German Diesels Dismantled

Along with Three Original Generators
Much was heard during World War I about the scrap metal the
Allies, particularly the United States, had sold to Japan and how this
same metal was returned during the conflict as the steel jackets on
bullets and the casings on shells. But though it was little conso-
lation at the time events were such that a similar transaction work-

ed in reverse. Lago played an im-
portant role in this and, instead of
Japan, it was Hitler's Germany that
was on the receiving end.
In 1933, after the fall of the Wei-
mar Republic, Standard Oil Company
of New Jersey had investments in
Germany, but wasn't allowed to re-
move currency from the country. In-
stead, the company was told it could
have different products and equip-
Along with at least one tanker
and a carload of mouth organs were
included two giant diesel generators
designed for ships. These generators
were sent to Lago.
Though designed for fifty-cycle
operation and Lago uses sixty-cycle,
the generators were speeded up close
to the critical operating limit to
produce the power to turn the tur-
bines in Powerhouse No. 1.
The succession of events from that
point are relatively simple the
generators produced power to ope-
rate the units that refined much of
the oils and gasolines for the planes
whose bombs ultimately brought
about both Germany and Japan's
More Power at Savings
Because of the high speed at which
they were required to operate, the
two diesels required considerable
In July, 1961, after a new steam
generator was installed at Power-
house No. 2, the two German die-
sels were declared surplus. Later,
after the government began supply-
ing power to Lago, six of ten turbo-
generators were declared surplus. Of
those six, three were the generators
originally installed when Powerhouse
No. 1 was erected in 1928.
The steam generators at Power-
house No. 2 provided more power
than the diesels, and at a consider-
able savings.
The German diesels did possess one
advantage over the steam genera-
tors in that they could be started
and brought up to full power in a
few minutes. The steam generators,
on the other hand, require two to
three hours before full power is re-
alized They must be brought up
slowly, so as not to damage the tur-
bines. Even after the steam genera-
tors were in use and prior to the
dismantling of the German diesels,
equipment failed occasionally or ab-
normal power was needed and these
diesels were brought into operation
At the rated revolutions a minute,
the German diesels produced 2920
horsepower. They had a two stroke
engine. The pistons stood more than
six feet high. Diameter of the piston
heads was twenty and one-half in-
ches and it had a twenty-seven and
one-half inch stroke. The diesels re-
quired fresh water cooling and Tank
82, formerly west of Powerhouse No.
1, stored water for that purpose.

Though it was an internal com-
bustion engine, the diesels did not
have the usual type valves and no
spark was necessary to ignite the
fuel. Ports in the sides of the cylin-
der wall covered by the piston dur-
ing part of its stroke functioned as
both air intake and exhaust valves.
The great compression built up in
the stroke developed temperature to
the ignition point, thus eliminating
the need for a spark. After compres-
sion the liquid fuel was mechanically
injected. To start the engine turning
over, starting air bottles were re-

Esso Helps Aruba Thrust Forward into Jet Age
A flashing streak of blue and white roared past
Princess Beatrix Airport control tower and short sec-
onds later lifted off the newly-inaugurated jet strip.
In the tanks of this Pan-Am Boeing 707 jet were 8516
gallons of Esso fuel helping to thrust Aruba into the
jet age.
The 8516 gallons were only a part of the big air-
craft's nearly 50.000 gallon capacity, but was more
fuel than any plane had taken in one loading at Aruba.
This record fuel load, which possibly won't be a
record for long, was the result of technical progress,
extensive training and many months of planning.
At 1:40 p.m., April 10, Pan-Am landed its first jet /
in Aruba. Following ceremonies in which the plane was
re-named "Jet Clipper Aruba," the big Boeing moved
to the apron east of the terminal building where four
new jet fuel hydrants are located. Underground pipe- -:
lines connect the hydrants to the recently completed
jet fuel storage and pumping facilities. The storage
tank capacity is 22,000 gallons of fuel.
Two hydrant carts were rolled under the wings. Hose

ering the fact that fresh life was being poured into
the giant flying machine.
The hydrant cart is a special piece of jet fueling
equipment that contains the hose for connections to
both wing and hydrants. It contains a pump and a fil-
ter separator which filters both dirt and water from
the fuel. The Pan-Am jet uses A-type fuel which is a
highly refined and purified kerosene. On the cart, the
filter separator further removes dirt particles and
Different gauges on the cart measure the pressure
before and after filtration and nozzle pressure. Another
gauge converts nozzle pressure to gallons delivered.
It required thirty minutes to fuel the jet.

E 8516 galon tabata solamente un parti di e avion
