Advanced Power Systems' objective is to provide a product to the market that would constructively affect the environment and simultaneously have a positive economic impact for the end user. The inventors of the first generation Fitch product were focused on gasoline stabilization. By the time the Fitch product was introduced to the commercial market, it had much more to offer than just gasoline stabilization. Advanced Power Systems Int'l. Inc. entered into a research agreement with the Department of Defense to extend the capabilities of the product to fuels used by the military including diesel and JP fuels. The Fitch product line we now market is the result of this and other research efforts. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst improves fuel quality as measured by to the ASTM tests specified by the Department of Defense.
As you know, all fuel can deteriorate due to the influences of microorganisms, oxygen and ozone. The Fitch Fuel Catalyst insures that all fuel (gas, diesel, bio-diesel, low sulfur diesel, kerosene, oil, etc.) delivered to a combustion engine is in its optimal condition allowing a burner or engine the maximum amount of energy with minimal emissions per kg of fuel.
Advanced Power Systems
was founded by John C. Fitch to commercialize his inventions and those of
other innovators in the field of energy efficiency and transportation
safety. John C. Fitch is a man of many firsts. He was the first SCCA
champion (1951) and won the 12 hours of Sebring in 1953. As Corvette race
team manager he transformed the car into a full-fledged racing machine in
the mid 50's. His life is chronicled in the biography "Racing Through Life" by Carl Goodwin. He is the designer of the famous Lime Rock Park Speedway
where Advanced Power Systems is located.
He is perhaps best known for his
development of the Fitch highway barrier system, the yellow sand filled
plastic barrels which are used on every interstate highway across the U.S.
and which have saved thousands of lives by dissipating the energy of
impact of a car encountering a large mass. In September of 2000 John Fitch
was inducted into the Corvette Museum Hall of Fame for his contribution to
making the Corvette a contender at Daytona, Sebring and LeMans.
