                        Ethanol Plant Operations Technician

                        Operations Lead Operator

       Operations Rover October , – June ,  

  • I have the ability to take over any operations position and in the absence of shift supervisor fill in as shift supervisor.
  • Responsible for weighing in and out semi trucks and supervising the loading or unloading as required.
  • Responsible for coordinating with the maintenance department to insure the safety of all personnel through proper lockout tagout of equipment in a timely manner. 
  • Distillation and Evaporation operator September , – October ,  
  • My area of responsibility was the distillation and evaporation systems and the tank farm.
  •  

                            Cook Operator March , – September ,  

  • My duties included monitoring the cook area of this plant and doing Laboratory monitoring of the cook and fermentation process.
  •  
  • I was also very helpful during the startup of this plant.  For example, I discovered that the cooling tower fans were running backwards and argued this with the start up team until they listened.  A vacuum pump in the distillation area made a really terrible
  • noise and after a tear down and rebuild sounded the same.  I looked the system over and found that the line that was being pumped to was obstructed with debris and simply deadheaded. 

  • A severe leak developed on the top of the boiler on day of operation and the order was given to shut it off.  Before the control room people could get the boiler shut down, I stopped the leak by tightening a pipe plug that was apparently left loose.
  •  
  • I assisted Dan Petersen, production superintendent,  with the development of the Anhydrous Ammonia safety procedure based on my years of experience working with the chemical .
  •  
  • During start up there was a leak on top of the Anhydrous Ammonia storage tank and I was called on and asked if I could advise as to how to stop the leak.  I got an extension ladder, leaned it against the upwind side of the tank, and ascended to the area of the leak.  I then tightened the bleed nut on the relief valve that had been leaking and returned the original relief to service.
  •  
     
  • I assisted Dan Petersen in writing the safety procedure on changing the slurry strainers and many others,  based on my strong and effective safe plant practices.
  •  
  • One time shortly after initial start up there was a problem with the vacuum in the distillation process, which was not my area of training or responsibility, but as I listened to a group discussion of the problem I realized and announced that there was a cooling water issue and that I would like permission to mess with things and try to solve the issue.  I wondered around for a bit and discovered that the condenser had no vacuum on it.  My solution was to pinch on the return water to the cooling tower to force a higher water flow to the vessel that had a problem.  This step caused the vacuum to come up, and proved that we had a cooling water issue. The solution was provided by ICM by advising us to restrict the cooling water on two vessels and this returned us to good operating practices.
  •  
  • During initial startup of the cooling water system a high amperage draw alarm came on, this caused great concern to the ICM startup team, Phil Gruenbacher and Brandon Autrey.  I told them that I knew of three cooling water pumps that had run for over years with their discharge block valves pinched to control the amperage draw on them. I then explained that by throttling the water flow through each pump that they did less work. The three of us went to the cooling tower, and under their supervision I demonstrated that by closing the discharge block valve and watching the panel in the motor control center the amperage draw would be lowered. When we left the area both pumps were running with their discharge block valves pinched, and there were no active alarms.
  •  
  • I was also commended several times for small things such as fixing leaks myself instead of calling for help and being helpful to others in safely learning how to do their jobs.

                May – October

                            Koch Nitrogen

           Dodge City, Kansas

                            Anhydrous Ammonia Plant Operations Technician 

                            Duties – See below 
     

                       – May

                            Farmland Industries

           Nitrogen Division

           Dodge City, Kansas

          Anhydrous Ammonia Plant Operations Technician
  • I worked years at the Dodge City Anhydrous Ammonia plant owned by Farmland Industries, Inc.  I was qualified to fill any position in their operations department for over years.  Some of the processes I was responsible for operation and monitoring included water treatment, the outside of control room operation of the Urea Ammonia Nitrate Plant, Control Board Operator of the Ammonia Nitrate Plant, the outside of control room operations of the Anhydrous Ammonia Plant and control board operator.
  • My duties also involved Lock Out Tag Out of equipment for safe repairs of equipment by our maintenance department and when the plants were not operating, securing and monitoring vessels for safe confined space entry.
  • This was a hour continuous operation and required its employees to be outside for extended periods of time on occasion.  We were never “on call” but overtime was used to cover sick leave and vacation.  Any time the plant was shut down for any reason we worked daily until the plant was operating again.  My normal hours were a hour rotating shift, days on and days off.  I was always easy to get a hold of and almost always responded to calls for overtime.
  • During my time of employment the plant grew from a ton per day unit to a facility that could regularly produce ton per day.
  • Education   High School Diploma

    Lakin High School

    Lakin, Kansas

    Accomplishments
  • Many hours of safety training as part of my past employment
  • I was an active member of a team that rewrote the startup procedure for the plant shortly after starting my employment there.  We were able to reduce the startup time from a hour procedure to an hour procedure, saving the company millions of dollars in natural gas that was vented instead of going into the process.  This procedure was copyrighted by Farmland Industries and sold to companies through out the world.
  • I read in a chemical engineer’s magazine about a new membrane being developed that Hydrogen could pass through and almost no known use for this membrane.  Through personal correspondence with the developer of the membrane, I suggested that his material could be very useful in the process of manufacturing Anhydrous Ammonia.  Now, almost every plant in the world passes the purge out of their continuous loop through a unit that was developed for this purpose and they return the pure Hydrogen back to their process, saving money.
  • After my employment started, a ton per day Urea Ammonium Nitrate Plant was built as part of our complex and I spent many long, hard hours of overtime during the first months of startup and initial operation.  It was a very rewarding feeling to see this become a reliable operating unit.
  • When I was hired for employment, the control systems were totally pneumatic.  All the controllers are now digitally controlled through a Bailey Control System. This was a challenge to implement, but I greatly increased our operating efficiency and our ability to analyze the well being of the plant and backstep through errors that led to accidents and undesired shutdowns.  It took a great team effort to iron out the problems. 
  • years without a lost time accident.
  • Member of Auxiliary Police Department at Dodge City KS
  • Upon moving to Trenton, NE, I became a member of the Trenton Volunteer Fire Department.
