New PCAR Passenger /Freight Lift

Rides Now Like a Hotel Elevator

All operating personnel and
other employees having to
work on -the elevated floors
of the PCAR can now have a
faster and smoother ride than
before. The new elevator tra-
vels in 45 seconds from the
1st to the 14th floor, taking
a maximum load of 4,400 lbs.

The new freight/passenger
elevator is easy to operate
and has a self-levelling feat-
ure. This means that the car
will stop on exactly even level
with each floor no matter
what the load is. This was
not so with the old lift.

Unlike the old elevator,
which was in use since the
PCAR was built in 1942, the
doors of the new lift also open
and close automatically like
a hotel lift.

The moving car has two
emergency features. There is
a telephone for communica-
tion with the PCAR operator
and there is an alarm button.

This is the controller for
the new lift in the machine
room on the 16th floor of
the PCAR.

Esaki ta e controlador pa e
lift nobo den e cuarto di
mashin na di 16 piso di

In addition, operating person-
nel using the two-way radio
system can contact each other
from inside the elevator car.

The new lift will also re-
place the Ali-Hoist that was
temporarily used for the
PCAR turnaround and during
construction of the new ele-
vator. Work on the elevator
started in May, 1968 and end-
ed in December, 1968. The
total project, including dis-
mantling of the old lift,
amounted to approximately
$ 55,000. The work was carried
out by the Otis Elevator Co.
and Lago personnel. Project
leader for the new lift was
Henry F. Coffi of Mechanical-

Two smaller lifts are used
in the refinery: one in the
Laboratories and one at the
Storehouse, both for trans-
porting materials. The Lago
Hospital has two passenger
and two freight elevators.

with double row of push
buttons at right for 14
floors. The two lower but-

and close doors.

Project leader for the new PCAR elevator is Henry F. Coffi

Lider di Proyecto pa e lift nobo di PCAR ta Henry F. Coffi

PCAR su Lift Nobo Awor Ta Traha

Mescos cu un Elevator di Hotel

Tur esnan cu ta traha den
e plant y otro empleadonan
cu tin cu traha riba e piso-
nan haltu di PCAR, awor por
subi cu mas velocidad y mas
suave cu anteriormente. E lift
nobo di PCAR ta subi den 45
second di promer te na di 14
piso, cu un carga maximo di
4,400 liber.
E lift nobo pa carga y pa-
sahero ta facil pa traha cune
y e mes ta- keda semper na
bon nivel. Esey ta nifica cu e
lift ta para exactamente
na e mes nivel di e piso ca-
minda el a keda parA, no ta
import cuantu carga e tin
aden. Esey no tabata e caso
cu e lift bieu.
Distinto for di e lift bieu,
cu tabata na uso for di tempu
nan a traha PCAR na 1942,
portanan di e lift nobo ta ha-
bri y cera automaticamente
mescos cu lift di un hotel.
E garoshi cu ta subi y ba-
ha tin dos caracteristica di se-
guridad. Tin un telefon cu
cual hende por papia cu ope-
rador di e plant, y un boton
di alarma. Ademas, .emplea-
donan cu ta opera e plant
por usa nan radio di dos di-
reccion pa papia cu otro for
di paden di e garoshi di lift.
E lift nobo tambe lo re-
emplaza e Ali-Hoist cu tabata

temporalmente na uso ora
PCAR tabata bao di revision,
y durante construction di
e lift nobo. Trabao riba e
lift a cuminza na Mei 1968 y
a keda complete na December

lift bieu, ta mas of menos
$ 55,000. E obra tabata bao

Lago Is First to Host Seminar

On Chemical Cleaning Manual S i

Recently Lago was the site
for a three-day Chemical
Cleaning Seminar sponsored
by Esso Research and Engin-
eering Company. Coordinators
for the seminar were B. Sear-
les and B. Howe of Esso Res-

The seminar is the first
held to introduce a Chemical
Cleaning Manual to South
and Central American affil-
iates. The manual is prepared
by Esso Research people.

The seminar included dis-
cussions, problem solving ses-
sions and one field demon-
stration of chemical cleaning

The manual deals with such
topics as Principles of Chem-
ical Cleaning, Operational
Chemical Cleaning, Chemical
Cleaning Equipment, High
Pressure Jetting Equipment,
Anti-Fouling Techniques and
how each company can esta-
blish its own chemical clean-
ing program.

While mechanical cleaning
has been the chief method of
removing rust and scale from
furnace and boiler tubes, this
manual now emphasizes the

use of a high pressure jetting
machine using water for this
type of work. Also other
cleaning methods using air,
water, steam, sand or chem-
icals were explained during
the seminar.

This new cleaning method
is faster, more efficient, req-
uires minimum dismantling of
equipment and virtually elim-
inates metal surface damage
during cleaning.

The high pressure equip-
ment should, however, be used
by well-trained personnel as
the water jet, for instance, is
capable of cutting timber and
even bricks. It can be oper-
ated at a capacity of as high
as 10,000 pounds per square

The seminar was attended
by affiliates' representatives
from Jamaica, Colombia, Am-
uay and Aruba Chemical In-
dustries. Attending from La-
go were Zone Supervisor L.
S. F. Anjie, Process-Refining
Maintenance Coordinators M.
C. Richardson and P. J. Za-
gers, Safety Advisor E. A.
Beaujon, and F. E. Dowling
and John W. Hodgson, both
of Mechanical-Engineering.

Participants in the Chemical Cleaning Seminar at Lago in-
spect the high pressure jetting equipment of Wescar. It can
generate operating pressure up to 10,000 Ibs. per square inch.
Participants den e Seminar pa Limpiamento Quimico na
Lago ta inspect e equipo pa spuit di alta presion di Wes-
car. E por genera presion te 10,000 liber pa duim cuadra.

Demonstration (top picture) is given on how tube bundles
are cleaned by high pressure water jetting. Closer inspec-
tion (lower picture) shows result of cleaning using just
