such as broken glass and castaway nail-
studded pieces of timber. They should
also be cautioned against hazards of
climbing, falling, slipping or playing with
sharp objects.
When they are in some outdoor activi-
ties, such as camping, hiking or cycling,
swimming or boating or on the sports
fields, they must be under supervision of
adults and the required precautions must
be taken for their safety.
Some precautions include using life-
saving equipment where possible and not
letting them play with matches, fires or
use gasoline and the like to make fires.
Also, excessive exposures to the sun may
cause harm to sensitive skin or even sun

'fF HBy convincing them of the benefit of
"safety at play" during these school holi-
days, we help mold them into responsible
citizens of the future so that they may
become more conscious of "safety at
work" as well.

General Inspection of Boilers Requires Planning and Trad

Cleanoutman Juan Boekhoudt Machinist Antonio Briesum Boilermaker E
Some important maintenance work goes almost unnoticed in the refinery,
such as a maintenance effort like the general inspection of a boiler. Unlike
other Process unit shutdowns, the shutdowns of any of the twelve boilers of
Lago's two Powerhouses is a must every two years. This is regulated by the
Antillean Boiler Code. This law stipulates that a boiler must be shut down
and inspected once every two years. This must be done to assure it is always
maintained in a safe condition.
Usually a boiler is shut down for general inspection for about six weeks.
In May/June, Boiler No. 2 at Powerhouse No. 2 and Boiler No. 11 at Power-
house No. 1 came down for general inspection. The planning of this work
was performed by Mechanical's Senior Planner Pedro Arends, while applying
the Critical Path Method. He was assisted by Regional Supervisor Ildo Dona-
ta as Coordinator.
Practically all Mechanical crafts were involved in this work, assisted by Pro-
cess personnel and EIS technicians. Part of the work was done by a few local
The bulk of the work, however, was carried out by Mechanical forces work-
ing one day and one night shift and included the following work. The Mecha-
nical Building Tradesmen erected scaffolds, repaired lining, replaced firebricks
and did the painting work.
The Boilermakers removed and serviced burners, opened the steam and mud
drums and removed the parts inside these drums. They also removed and re-
placed hundreds of tubes, serviced soothblowers and filled the boilers with
boiler water. A boiler has about 1170 tubes.
The Welders seal-welded the superheater elements, inspected, repaired and
re-installed these elements.
The Cleanoutmen re-installed the steam drum inner parts, repaired the fur-
nace floor and washed the tubes externally.
The Pipefitters took care of blinding the various lines connected to the boi-
ler and removed and re-installed safety and other valves.
The Instrumentmen inspected and tested the high and low alarm systems
and other measuring devices. Electricians made necessary inspection and re-
pairs to electrical equipment and conduits.
The Transportation men transported the inner parts of the boilers from the
powerhouse to Mechanical Shops, materials from Storehouse, tools from the
Central Tool Room, while the Machinists did the required machining work on
the boiler parts.
The E.I.S. personnel throughout the shutdown made the necessary equip-
ment inspection and witnessed testing of the safety valves and the boiler.
The Process inspector was in charge of inspecting the work done, firing up
the boiler and testing the safety valves before the government inspector per-
formed his final testing and gave his approval of the boiler.
All this mechanical work was carried out under field supervision of Mecha-
nical Supervisors Felipe Tromp (day shift) and Bart Romano (night shift).
The most important safety devices on a boiler are the four safety valves on
each boiler, which are designed to allow steam to escape if a specific maxi-
mum pressure is exceeded in the boiler. Although the boilers normally ope-
rate at 410-425 pounds per square inch, during the general inspection the ol-
der ones are tested at 690 psi and the new Tosi boilers at 750 psi. Also im-
portant are the level gauges for the boiler water. This water (containing less
than 10 parts per million of impurities) is purer than drinking water (about 200
ppm) and is tested with chemicals to prevent corrosion of the boiler tubes,

Algun trabao important di mantenecion ta bai casi sin ser notA den refine-

Contrario na bahamento di otro unidadnan di process, e bahamento di cual-
kier di e 12 boilernan di e dos Powerhousenan di Lago mester tuma lugar
cada 2 anja. Esaki ta stipula pa e Ley di Stoomketel. Esaki ta prescribi cu
un boiler mester baha y ser inspectA un biaha cada dos anja. Esaki ta pa
asegura cu semper e ta ser manteni den condition seguro.
Generalmente un boiler ta baha pa inspection general pa como seis siman.
Na Mei/Juni, Boiler No. 2 na Powerhouse No. 2 y Boiler No. 11 na Power-
house No. 1 a baha pa inspection general. E planeamento di e trabao aki a
ser haci pa Senior Planner di Mechanical Pedro Arends, mientras usando e
Metodo Critico di Trabao. El a ser asisti pa Supervisor Regional Ildo Donata
como Coordinador.
Practicamente tur ofishi di mechanical tabata envolvf den e trabao, cu asis-
tencia di personal di Process y tecniconan di EIS. Parti di e trabao a ser ha-
ci pa un paar di contratista local.
Pero mayoria di e trabao a ser ehecutA pa personal di Mechanical, trahan-
do un warda den dia y un warda di anochi, y a inclui e siguiente trabao. E
Artesanos di Construccion a traha stelashi, drecha paden di forno, a cambia
