T

o achieve global competitiveness through operational excellence in today’s demand driven environment, the TPM launch ceremony took place on 31 October 2013 at LCPL Plant Site. Over two hundred LCPL employees attended the event. The ceremony started with a recitation from the Holy Quran followed by a welcome speech by Mr. Qamar Alam. In his address Mr. Qamar Alam remarked that TPM does not provide a quick or easy solutions. It usually requires changes in employee’s attitude and values which take time. He further added that TPM was a company-wide approach

towards achieving a standard of performance in manufacturing, in terms of the overall effectiveness of equipment, machines and processes, which is truly world class. Mr. Asif Saad launched TPM by unveiling the TPM logo, after which the video screens on the main stage started displaying an introductory TPM video showing basics of TPM and TPM implementation protocol at LCPL. The video was followed by two more motivational videos on team work. There was also a video message by Mr. Kim, Chairman Lotte Chemicals. Recalling the remarkable success after

TPM implementation at Lotte Chemical’s Ulsan Plant, he expressed his hope that TPM implementation at LCPL will also be a great success in terms of plant productivity, its availability, its efficiencies and skill development of all the employees. Mr. Kim expressed his appreciation for LCPL employees for their past performances and possessing a willingness to accept new challenges. He wished LCPL a great success and assured his full cooperation for achieving accelerated, focused, and sustainable results by TPM implementation. At the TPM launch ceremony, Mr. Asif Saad also addressed the employees continued on next page

Year End Results

he much awaited newsletter for 2013 is finally here. The year where our achievements speak for themselves is a testament of the hard work and effort by all employees. The timely completion of overhaul 2013 with zero injury earlier in the year was just one of the highlights of this year. The Introduction of TPM (Total Productive Management) is another step towards achieving excellence through employee engagement. The gradual implementation of this methodology will no doubt bring the best out of us all. Our efforts were also recognized by other independent bodies as our Company was awarded with fire & safety award, CSR Business Excellence award, Environmental Excellence Award and best learning organization award. These awards clearly outline the high standard we maintain at our Company. Our CSR efforts continued throughout the year. Following our support to victims of natural disasters that had hit Pakistan in earlier years, Our Company did not shy away from supporting fellow countrymen when earth quake hit the province of Baluchistan in 2013. Our support for Family educational services (FESF), Karachi United Federation, WWF and AKU continued as per norm. While 2013 had been a challenging year, we did celebrate our hard work with Musical evening and other social activities at the plant site which provided us an opportunity to spend some leisure time with our fellow employees. Lastly, on behalf of the editorial team, I apologize for the delayed publication of this newsletter. However with your continued support, we will be publishing the newsletter every quarter from this year again. Having said this, I would once again like to thank you for your support and encouragement shown towards “Life @ Lotte Chemical Pakistan” and hope you continue sharing your success and achievement with us. – Zain Talpur

Plant was de-classified after 44 hours of shutdown that was another milestone, previously 48 hours were required for de-classification. In this overhaul, a new concept of ‘Area Block’ as an initiative was introduced that helped in reducing a number of slip plates for vessel entries, resulting in reduced cost, manpower resource and early handover of equipments. OX and Pure Plants were decon-

taminated in a skillful and professional manner; no surprises or upsets have been seen during jobs and equipments handover. Almost every vessel was found to be neat, clean and free of chemical smell and leftover powder lumps. Major jobs at OX Plant included TA Dryer repair, PAC rotor replacement / overhauling, PAC electronic Protonic auto control system changeover with Siemens SCAUT system, inspection / deblocking of vent header.

a solution which would provide the most feasible way of smooth hardware and software transformation, and that too, in minimum plant outage. Hence, after much techno-commercial evaluation, DeltaV from Emerson Process Management was finalized. Engineering of the system, followed by extensive Factory Acceptance Test by LCPL Instrumentation and Production teams was completed at Emerson Singapore. The commissioning scope of the

large scale and short time span is indeed a praiseworthy achievement. The LCPL Instrumentation team performed extraordinarily well in the leadership of Amir Azam and Irfan Ahmed. In the forefront of various installation & commissioning activities was Asif Farooqi, supported by a diligent team of technicians and apprentices.

ransformers play a vital role in the overall electrical network at plant. Stepping down voltage levels to supply power to industrial drives and maintaining that level are two most significant roles. Understandably, these units also require appropriate maintenance regimes which include periodic testing, general maintenance and refurbishment if need be. Plant overhauls and short shut downs give our electrical team the window to work on these transformers which are otherwise in service throughout the year. This past overhaul the electrical team, consisting of Talha Mustafa, Kamran Khan, Niaz Ahmed, Kashif Nadeem and HFC technicians, worked on maintenance and replacement of transformers at plant. Some transformers were sent to Siemens for refurbishment while some others were replaced with already refurbished spare transformers. The cor-

respondence with Siemens transformers refurbishment team was also done very well with lead times of half of what it normally is. Electrical testing of all 22 distribution transformers was also carried out by Siemens engineers with necessary support provided by our team. The activity was spread throughout the overhaul. It was planned very effectively by the electrical planning team and followed even better by the execution team with no lags encountered in the electrical outage plan. A few unplanned issues were however encountered during the replacement job but were handled adeptly by the Electrical team. On such problem that was frequently encountered was the mechanical interchangeability of different transformers. The positioning of holes, gland plates, busbars and sizing of terminal boxes were different and it was a challenge to make adjustments and modifications in a limited frame of time.

High pressure steam at 309 ºC and 98–bar pressure was observed to be gushing out of the flange. The leakage had an increasing trend and the rate was increasing with every passing hour, if not contained it had the potential to force steam isolation and consequently lead to plant shut down. By Fahad Hassan Accessing the hazards involved and the criticality of job; plan was devised. The plan involved injection of a specialized sealing compound having temperature hardening properties directly into the flange through the use of state of the art technology. A specialized clamp was fabricated in-house to facilitate injection and to serve as a holding medium for injection compound. The plan was successfully implemented and the dedication and commitment of the team resulted in sealing the joint completely.

otte Chemical Pakistan has always believed that a plant working at maximum efficiency is the key to successful business. This is why millions of rupees are spent every year to not only maintain equipment but to also improve it in any way possible. However, it is also possible to solve issues with just determination and initiative. The mechanical maintenance team of the purification plant, led by Asim-urRehman and assisted by Nadeem Mehdi, Kamran Khursheed and their team, were faced with a similar problem not long ago. The paddle thrower of the Container Back Fill Unit had been having issues with leakage of burnt packing residue into the product. The contaminated product was not at par with the quality expected from Lotte Chemical Pakistan. As the current paddle thrower was now obsolete, spare parts or service were no longer readily available. Modified paddle throwers however, were available in good condition. The quoted price for one of these paddle throwers was Rs. 18 million. However the maintenance team was insistent that a solution could be found that would not only save the company a lot of money but also leave the company more self reliant. Using the plans of the modified paddle throwers, an in-house solution was found in form of Brass Labyrinth Seals, which replaced half of By Taha Iqbal the packing, stopping the leakage. The paddle thrower has been operating problem free since it was commissioned. Such initiatives are what the engineering department must continue strive for.

ecent plant overhaul was packed with new challenges and the opportunities to prove team’s worth, with CTA dryer tyre replacement and internal repairs works on top of the list. Tyre replacement, an activity which had never been dealt by the LCPL team, was of critical nature as the reliability of dryer and productivity of plant depended on it. Considering the challenge a dedicated team was commissioned to plan and execute this activity with primary focus on safe and successful completion of the job. Numerous preprational activities were undertaken including development of dummy rollers to facilitate internal repairs and dryer rotation without its tyre, which happens to be main load bearing. These activities involved prolong crane operation with simultaneous repair works of welding both internal and on dryer shell. The entire activity needed close coordination between numerous interfaces to ensure smooth maintenance without delay on any front. Through dedicated team effort, entire job including internal repairs and tyre replacement was completed within the defined time line and without any compromise on quality.

Reverse Engineering R

everse engineering has become a very useful for engineers. This was why the purification plant maintenance team decided to develop an alternate source for Sundyne pump spare parts, using a credible supplier in South Korea. As the equipment in question was critical to the operation of the plant it was necessary that a comprehensive technical evaluation be carried out to ensure that there was no compromise in quality. The company selected for this task was Samjeong Turbine. Samjeong is a highly reputed company with a rich history in reverse engineering. The inducer, impeller, high and low speed shafts of gearbox and journal bearings of idler and driven shafts were sent to South Korea so that Samjeong could start the reverse engineering process.. Any part to be reverse engineered was inspected By Fahad closely; drawings were produced, verified and corHassan rected if necessary. All the materials used in the production of these parts were investigated and verified. The Purchase department also played an extremely important part during the import and export phases of the process. When produced, the quoted price for the reverse engineered parts was a fraction of the price of that of the OEM parts, resulting in almost 80% savings. The ordered parts have since been used in the refurbishment of a Sundyne pump which has been operating at maximum efficiency. This has prompted further dealings with Samjeong Turbine. As the prices for original spare parts go up, it has become necessary to turn to reverse engineering. The Engineering and Commercial teams should be credited for this remarkable cost saving initiative.

Team Work – a Success Story

C

hallenging the status quo should be the mean for any organization that wants to excel. An organization must not underestimate the power of a team under difficult circumstances; it’s the combined effort of teams that generates the results beyond one’s imagination. Challenging a decade-long practice and providing a better alternative with additional savings, operational, maintenance, effluent handling and treatment ease would not have been possible without the collective relentless efforts put in by the team from the Operations & Technical departments. In order to reduce variable cost, a combined initiative was taken by techBy Waqas nical and operations team to replace Shehryar the candles washing media from Acetic Acid to Hot Flush Water for PTA Mother Liquor Filter (M1-1603). The change is expected to reduce the cost associated with maintenance, filter elements changeover, inspection, and will also help in increasing equipment availability. Improvements were made possible by ulitilizing the provision available in design rather than going for huge capital investments. The initiative was first employed as a controlled trial. Successful implementation of the trial since June2013 is an exemplary achievement as no other PTA plant is utilizing this methodology.

he protection relays installed at the 11kV SWBD01 were in service since plant commissioning. With the passage of time and upgradation in technology, these relays had become obsolete. The spares and technical backup support had also depleted considerably during the past few years. The relays manufacturer had recommended new MiCOM protection relays as a replacement to the installed relays. Therefore, a phase-wise plan was developed for the replacement of protection relays. Phase 1 and majority of Phase 2 relays were successfully migrated in the previous overhauls. The replacement of protection relays at 11kV SWBD01 was successfully carried out during this overhaul, which included replacement of the existing protection relays MCGG 82 i.e.

The generators were behaving abnormally for about six months before the plant overhaul; the engines were overspeeding on start-up and then tripping on over frequency. Also, load sharing behaviour between the generators was abnormal. The probable cause was the Load Sharing Modules (LSMs) on the EDGs and BLG. Therefore, in the presence of service engineer from Woodward International Singapore; calibration of LSMs was performed to achieve the required behaviour. Although it was difficult to get load for the generators since the plant overhaul was in full swing, with most of the drives de-energized. However, with full support from operations team the minimum requirement of 50% load was eventually met. Calibration for all modules was done repeatedly after testing them on-load and then tweaking the settings to accomplish desired results. Undoubtedly, dedicated efforts and round the clock working of Electrical team consisted of MuBy Shuaib Iqbal hammad Waqas, Abid Qayyum and Muhammad Sohaib Iqbal along with the vendor engineer resulted in the diagnosis and the rectification of the issues that were interrupting the normal operation of EDGs and BLG.

Cryptograms Cryptograms are simple-substitution ciphers where every letter of the alphabet has been switched. Your task is to use pattern recognition and your grammar and vocabulary abilities to decipher the hidden quotes. Hint: start with the 1, 2 and 3 letter words, and remember that the most common letters in the English language are E-T-A-I-O-N, in roughly that order. Good luck!
