Lago/Affiliates’ Engineers Broaden Knowledge
On Industrial Design Work in ERE Design Course

On Monday, September 29, Lago
Vice President Per Nord officially
opened a Mechanical Engineering De-
sign Course in Classroom 2 of the Ad-
ministration Building. In his opening
remarks he pointed out the impor-
tance of these type courses which ful-
fill an important need to continuous-
ly educate our employees, especially,
in areas that are significant for the
development of their careers.

Attending the one-week course
were a group of Lago engineers, most
of them fairly recent graduates pre-
sently working in the Technical De-
partment, and five engineers from EIA
affiliates in Latin America. The in-
structors were Charlie J. Maguire, Ray
M. Boyarczuk and Vincent A. Carucci,

Economics & Planning Division enga-
ged in special studies and economic
analyses related to long range refine-
ry planning.

Conducting the Mechani-

engineers of Exxon Research & Engi-
neering Company at Florham Park.

As one of the important courses
given at Lago, the Mechanical Engi-
neering Design Course serves to broa-
den the knowledge of engineers asso-
ciated in the field of industrial design
work throughout specific sessions on
mechanical design of vessels, exchan-
gers, tankage and piping. The course
also covered material selection, mate-
rial testing and welding techniques.

In conducting the course, the in-
structors utilized a variety of audiovi-
sual equipment, hand-outs and sam-
ple problems which contributed signi-
ficantly to a clear understanding of
the subject materials. The attendees
were able to get a broader view of
the material discussed through refe-
rence manual standardly used by Ex-
xon and Lago.

Combined Program Stresses Safety Regulations
And Practices To Increase Safety Awareness

At the end of the month, over 600
employees from Mechanical, Process
and Technical Departments will have
attended a Safe Practices, Work Per-
mits and Industrial Hygiene Training
program in the Mechanical Training
Center in the Laboratory Building.
This combined program was prepar-
ed and handled by the Industrial Hy-
giene/Safety Section personnel of the
Employee Relations Department. Its
aim — to refresh and inform these
employees of all safety aspects in the
refinery, work procedures and indus-
trial hygiene practices at Lago.

During a total of five weeks, twenty-
five four-hour sessions were held,
with about twenty-eight employees at-
tending each time. Keeping the group
small enabled safety personnel more
intimate and direct communication

with participants, who in turn, felt
more at ease at raising questions and
discussing specific problems in their
work area.

Each day the session was opened
and introduced by Industrial Hygiene/
Safety Administrator Everett A. Beau-
jon. The lectures on Safe Practices
were given by Safety Section Head
Frits Maduro, those on Work Permits
by Senior Safety Technician Alwin
Sluer, and Industrial Hygiene was
handled by Simon Geerman, Indus-
trial Hygiene Technician. The training
program was wrapped up with discus-
sions on safety in general, specifical-
ly in the refinery area.

This was the first time in many
years, that such a complete safety
program was developed and present-

Process Manager Don Gardner here welcomes Edwin

Tromp to the Process Department on October 1. Edwin

is one of ten newly-hired young men, who following a two-

week theoretical training program in the Laboratories, are
now on an intensive field training program prior to their Seog oat ae

permanent work assignment in the Process Department.

Why Speed Eats Gasoline... ...

Why do high speeds eat up so much gasoline? Physics! That's right —
physics. To be more specific, wind resistance. It takes energy to move a
car — even in a vacuum. But when a car moves through air, the faster the
vehicle moves, the more wind resistance it meets.

You can use the palm of your hand to test the wind resistance a car en-
counters. As the car moves along, stick your hand out the window and you
can feel the pressure of air pushing against your palm. If the car slows down,
you can feel a reduction in the pressure. But if the car speeds up, you can
note that the increase in pressure is proportionately greater than the increase
in speed.

In fact, wind resistance at 65 miles an hour is 40 percent greater than the
pressure at 55 mph.

So, the faster you go, the more wind resistance you get. And the more wind
resistance you get, the more gas you have to burn in order to overcome the
resisfance.

That's it. Physics. At 65 mph, wind resistance costs you about four gallons
out of every 20-gallon tank.

That’s a big price to pay — just for blowing a little harder against the wind !

Pakiko Velocidad Ta Come Gasoline......

Pakiko velocidadnan halto ta come asina tanto gasoline ? Fisica! Esey ta
corecto — fisica. Pa ser mas specifico, resistencia na biento. Mester di ener-
gia pa move un auto — hasta den un lugar sin aire. Pero ora cu un auto mo-
ve den biento, mas liher e vehiculo move, mas resistencia na biento el ta haya.

Bo por usa palma di Bo man pa test e resistencia di biento cu un auto ta
haya. Segun e auto ta bai pa dilanti, saca Bo man pafor di bentana anto sin-
ti e presion di aire pushando contra Bo palma di man. Pero si e auto aumen-
ta velocidad, Bo por nota cu e aumento di presion ta proporcionalmente mas
grandi cu e aumento di velocidad.

Realmente, resistencia di biento na 65 milja pa hora ta 40 porciento mas
grandi cu e presion na 55 milja pa hora.

Pesey, mas duro Bo corre, mas resistencia di biento Bo ta haya. Y mas re-
sistencia di biento Bo haya, mas gasolin Bo mester kima pa asina por supera
e resistencia.

T’esey. Fisica. Na 65 milja pa hora, resistencia di biento ta costa Bo como
cuatro galon for di cada tanki di 20 galon.

Esey ta un prijs halto pa paga — djies pa supla un tiki mas duro contra
biento !

Lago/Affiliates’ Engineers Broaden Knowledge
On Industrial Design Work in ERE Design Course

On Monday, September 29, Lago
Vice President Per Nord officially
opened a Mechanical Engineering De-
sign Course in Classroom 2 of the Ad-
ministration Building. In his opening
remarks he pointed out the impor-
tance of these type courses which ful-
fill an important need to continuous-
ly educate our employees, especially,
in areas that are significant for the
development of their careers.

Attending the one-week course
were a group of Lago engineers, most
of them fairly recent graduates pre-
sently working in the Technical De-
partment, and five engineers from EIA
affiliates in Latin America. The in-
structors were Charlie J. Maguire, Ray
M. Boyarczuk and Vincent A. Carucci,

Economics & Planning Division enga-
ged in special studies and economic
analyses related to long range refine-
ry planning.

engineers of Exxon Research & Engi-
neering Company at Florham Park.

As one of the important courses
given at Lago, the Mechanical Engi-
neering Design Course serves to broa-
den the knowledge of engineers asso-
ciated in the field of industrial design
work throughout specific sessions on
mechanical design of vessels, exchan-
gers, tankage and piping. The course
also covered material selection, mate-
rial testing and welding techniques.

In conducting the course, the in-
structors utilized a variety of audiovi-
sual equipment, hand-outs and sam-
ple problems which contributed signi-
ficantly to a clear understanding of
the subject materials. The attendees
were able to get a broader view of
the material discussed through refe-
rence manual standardly used by Ex-

Combined Program Stresses Safety Regulations
And Practices To Increase Safety Awareness

At the end of the month, over 600
employees from Mechanical, Process
and Technical Departments will have
attended a Safe Practices, Work Per-
mits and Industrial Hygiene Training
program in the Mechanical Training
Center in the Laboratory Building.
This combined program was prepar-
ed and handled by the Industrial Hy-
giene/Safety Section personnel of the
Employee Relations Department. Its
aim — to refresh and inform these
employees of all safety aspects in the
refinery, work procedures and indus-
trial hygiene practices at Lago.

During a total of five weeks, twenty-
five four-hour sessions were held,
with about twenty-eight employees at-
tending each time. Keeping the group
small enabled safety personnel more
intimate and direct communication

with participants, who in turn, felt
more at ease at raising questions and
discussing specific problems in their
work area.

Each day the session was opened
and introduced by Industrial Hygiene/
Safety Administrator Everett A. Beau-
jon. The lectures on Safe Practices
were given by Safety Section Head
Frits Maduro, those on Work Permits
by Senior Safety Technician Alwin
Sluer, and Industrial Hygiene was
handled by Simon Geerman, Indus-
trial Hygiene Technician. The training
program was wrapped up with discus-
sions on safety in general, specifical-
ly in the refinery area.

This was the first time in many
years, that such a complete safety
program was developed and present-

Process Manager Don Gardner here welcomes Edwin

Tromp to the Process Department on October 1. Edwin

is one of ten newly-hired young men, who following a two-

week theoretical training program in the Laboratories, are
now on an intensive field training program prior to their Seog oat ae

permanent work assignment in the Process Department.

Why Speed Eats Gasoline... ...

Why do high speeds eat up so much gasoline? Physics! That's right —
physics. To be more specific, wind resistance. It takes energy to move a
car — even in a vacuum. But when a car moves through air, the faster the
vehicle moves, the more wind resistance it meets.

You can use the palm of your hand to test the wind resistance a car en-
counters. As the car moves along, stick your hand out the window and you
can feel the pressure of air pushing against your palm. If the car slows down,
you can feel a reduction in the pressure. But if the car speeds up, you can
note that the increase in pressure is proportionately greater than the increase
in speed.

In fact, wind resistance at 65 miles an hour is 40 percent greater than the
pressure at 55 mph.

So, the faster you go, the more wind resistance you get. And the more wind
resistance you get, the more gas you have to burn in order to overcome the
resisfance.

That's it. Physics. At 65 mph, wind resistance costs you about four gallons
out of every 20-gallon tank.

That’s a big price to pay — just for blowing a little harder against the wind !

Pakiko Velocidad Ta Come Gasoline......

Pakiko velocidadnan halto ta come asina tanto gasoline ? Fisica! Esey ta
corecto — fisica. Pa ser mas specifico, resistencia na biento. Mester di ener-
gia pa move un auto — hasta den un lugar sin aire. Pero ora cu un auto mo-
ve den biento, mas liher e vehiculo move, mas resistencia na biento el ta haya.

Bo por usa palma di Bo man pa test e resistencia di biento cu un auto ta
haya. Segun e auto ta bai pa dilanti, saca Bo man pafor di bentana anto sin-
ti e presion di aire pushando contra Bo palma di man. Pero si e auto aumen-
ta velocidad, Bo por nota cu e aumento di presion ta proporcionalmente mas
grandi cu e aumento di velocidad.

Realmente, resistencia di biento na 65 milja pa hora ta 40 porciento mas
grandi cu e presion na 55 milja pa hora.

Pesey, mas duro Bo corre, mas resistencia di biento Bo ta haya. Y mas re-
sistencia di biento Bo haya, mas gasolin Bo mester kima pa asina por supera
e resistencia.

T’esey. Fisica. Na 65 milja pa hora, resistencia di biento ta costa Bo como
cuatro galon for di cada tanki di 20 galon.

Esey ta un prijs halto pa paga — djies pa supla un tiki mas duro contra
biento !
