Residential and Commercial Boilers

Did you know that for every 100 gallons of #2 fuel oil we save, with the use of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst, we will reduce the CO2 emissions by one (1) metric ton not emitted into the atmosphere? Help us to help you provide a cleaner environment.

The "HO-5UL and HO-10UL Series Catalyst". They are specifically designed for Residential and Commercial Heating applications. "UL Listed" for safety and easily installed on furnaces by a Licensed heating technician. These units are a one time installation and last for 10 years! Industrial applications are good for 5 years or 10,000 hours.

Oil Burner Treatment


The Fitch Fuel Catalyst for oil burners

The Fitch Fuel Catalyst is UL Listed and available for all commercial and residential oil burners. (Certificate of compliance available to view HERE )
Residential applications are warranted for 10 years and commercial applications for 10,000 operating hours.

Results from installing Fitch on a Residential Oil Burner:

1. Stack temperature increases

2: Catalyst increases the heat output per gallon burned

3: Reduce nozzle size as a result of less fuel required to obtain the same BTU output.

This improved combustion also means cleaner burning of the fuel. The heating appliance will stay cleaner, maintain a higher degree of operating efficiency and require less maintenance.

 

 
The Fitch Fuel Catalyst for oil burner applications is designed to improve both the economy and the overall performance of your heating system. The catalyst reacts with the fuel resulting in significant improvements in combustion.

 

THE FITCH FUEL CATALYST BENEFITS

More heat output (BTU’s) with less fuel

Emissions reductions of up to 98%

Elimination of soot and carbon buildup

Reduce Fuel Consumption (reduction in nozzle size)

Reduce Emissions

Improve Combustion Efficiency

Improve Overall Performance

Provide a Cleaner Burn

The Fitch® Fuel Catalyst is a maintenance free device which easily installs in the fuel line much like a fuel filter. The correct size unit is determined by fuel flow per hour and by the maximum capacity of the boiler.

HOW IT WORKS

After leaving the refinery, all fuels begin to degrade in quality. They are affected by oxygen, ozone and various microorganisms including yeast, mold and bacteria. The longer any fuel is stored before using, the more it degrades. Today’s fuel additives make this problem even worse! When the fuel goes through the Fitch Fuel Catalyst it is re-refined and its original quality restored thus enabling it to burn more completely.

First, the improved combustion resulting from the catalyst increases the heat output per gallon burned."This enables the burner fuel nozzle size to be reduced." Consequently less fuel is required to obtain the same BTU output.

Second, the improved combustion also means cleaner burning of the fuel. The burner will stay cleaner for a longer time. This means the burner system will maintain a higher degree of operating efficiency over a longer time period.

INSTALLATION:

Installation of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst must be performed by a qualified technician. The special instruments and equipment used by the technician are required to ensure the proper installation and operation of the unit. The technician will assure that the proper nozzle size has been selected for the burner and that inlet air, stack temperatures, and soot levels are measured and adjusted correctly.

The fitch Fuel Catalyst is a is installed in the fuel delivery line and is a maintenance-free device with a guaranteed life of ten (10) years.


THE MAIN PROBLEM IS FUEL DEGRADATION

· The simplest and least expensive way to improve energy efficiency is to improve fuel quality.
· The #1 cause of heating system failure is fuel quality.
· The average gallon of #2 heating oil is supposed to have a shelf life of 3 to 6 months; however, after just 23 days out of the refinery it can already be out of spec.

 

THE REFINING PROCESS AND THE CYCLE OF FUEL DEGRADATION


Crude oil enters the refinery where catalysts, heat, and pressure work to shorten fuel molecules, making them easier to burn.
· Once fuels leave the refinery they start to degrade— refined fuels want to return to their unrefined state as longer hydrocarbon molecules. Today’s fuel additives make this problem worse.
· During shipping and storage this degradation process continues.
· The problem of fuel degradation is especially acute; our large land area, our likelihood of buying early for the winter season, and our scattered population centers are a problem. Fuel quality can vary significantly from place to place.

Here is a letter that states just what kind of savings they have achieved in the past year...."The savings were more than we expected, some 8,830 gallons, of No 6 oil which, given the significant price increases for all heating oil during last winter, saved us approximately $22,500."

   Department of Environmental Protection’s Burlington Trout Hatchery Burlington, CT Boiler Test Report (April 9/2010)
Boiler: Weil Mclean 408,000 BTU Hot water system
Furnace: C.A. Olsen, Model OH-85E

The Fitch achieved at least a 10% reduction in fuel consumption without compromise in the boiler and furnace output. There was a reduction in greenhouse gas emssions as well.
Based on consumption figures provided by the Hatchery for the period of 1/1/2009 through 12/31/ 2009 and the benefits provide by the Fitch would indicate a combined average fuel savings of approximately 389 gallons of oil. At price of $2.60 per gallon, the dollar savings would equal $1,011.10 in the first year.
Emission Reductions There were reductions in NOx, CO and CO2 emissions after the Fitch Catalyst was installed. This reduction of greenhouse gases has a direct public health benefit and offers the potential for obtaining Emission Credits especially if all State building reductions are aggregated. In both cases, there was no evidence of smoke residue.

“The Fitch Fuel Catalyst will save my organization about $14,000 in oil costs for the first year.  I encourage everyone to purchase a Fitch Fuel Catalyst and have it installed today!”.

KY, homeowner, Damariscotta, ME:
“I had been advised of a minimum 10% savings when the unit was installed & imagine my pleasure when after one year my savings are actually 14%”.

BC, multi-unit buildings owner, Rockland, ME:
“We installed 11 units on our buildings & with an average savings of 20.3%. These results were much more than we had expected”.

New York City Housing Authority
“The Fitch Fuel Catalyst offers very atractive returns on investment. Use of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst is consistent with policies to reduce polution, fuel costs and maintenance throughout the housing authority.”

RC, President, C & G, Inc.
“I have put these filters on our local hospital and area high school. These two organizations will recognize a combined reduction of 12,000 gallons. The approach from Green Energy Products, Inc. has been very forthright and there are no smoking mirrors. How can you go wrong when the company guarantees results within the first year or your money back?.”

SM, President, CM McCormick & Sons Plumbing & Heating
“…….the Fitch unit is more than meeting our expectations. I am especially pleased with the results that we are seeing at the Whitefield School as were able to reduce their fuel consumption by 28%. We have seen at least 10% on all units that we have installed and in most cases it has been considerably higher.”

BC, President, Maine Energy Conservation
“Now I have the fuel delivery records from last heating season and the projected results are confirmed. Even though you guaranteed a minimum 10% savings I believe I have saved more than that.” Innkeeper, Mill Pond Inn B&B “We installed 11 units …..and the average savings was 20.3%. These results were much more than I had expected.”

Maintenance Engineering Co-ordinator, Indonesia
After three weeks testing the Fitch Fuel Catalyst on our Water Treatment Plant power generator we have experienced over 10% reduction in fuel usage......This is in addition to the engine running much smoother and producing almost no smoke while running. Thank you for the opportunity to test this unit and provide us the potential of cost savings and reduced emissions on all our liquid fueled equipment

Director of Property Maintenance, Large Hotel Chain, Jakarta
...I believe that the readings have now stabilized after both visually and practically verifying that the fuel reductions achieved have been through the installation of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst as the combustion in the Boiler has improved dramatically. As a result we have recorded a 20.38% drop in fuel consumption. Finally, I note that the Stack Temperatures have decreased, the Smoke Emissions have cleared and the internal sooting levels are only at a fraction of the levels previous experienced.

Carlson Oil Burner & Heating, CT
Bob Carlson wins the 2008 NHRA Northeast Division 1 Motorcycle Championship using the Fitch fuel Catalyst! Bob has been an on-going customer for Fitch. He also uses the product in his heating business "Carlson Oil Burner & Heating".
Quote:This year I decided to become involved with the Fitch in my everyday business. I own and operate an Oil Burner/Heating Service company. I bought one Fitch in-line unit to test efficiency on my Becket oil burner. I was happy to see an increase in combustion efficiency from 83% to 85% and the boiler came up to temperature quicker just by installing the Fitch unit. An increase of over 1.5% combustion efficiency is significant in my business. I recommend the Fitch Fuel Catalyst to my customers through a mailer and have sold and installed numerous units. We conduct the efficiency tests before and after the Fitch installations and in every case improvement is achieved. Thanks for the great product. Bob Carlson

BriteLyt, Inc,Eddie Draper
"Dear Fitch, Just a few words to let you know that we have completed our test using kerosene, gasoline, and old BioDiesel, using the same Fitch Fuel Catalyst. These catalysts are designed to be used for a lifetime, by the way, so no need to remove and replace them. Simply leave it in your tank. Testing of all the fuels (kerosene, gasoline, & biodiesel) we noticed the following:
1. Shorter pre-heating time. Knocked off 10 - 15% of the preheating time.
2. Bright light. Just looking at it, you will see a much brighter light. Totally, amazing!!
3. With old biodiesel (very thick - over 3 yrs. old) the lantern worked, flawlessly as though the biodiesel was brand new. Worked more like kerosene easier startup, bright/white light, and with no odor.
4. Decreased odors, and, in some cases, no odor.
5. Pumping time was decreased for all three fuels. . We did not have to add pressure to the lantern, for approx. 2 - 4 hrs. During the initial run-time of 8 hrs. Eddie only had to apply pressure to the lanterns 1 - 2 times.
6. Cleaner burn, around the mantle (glass did not fog up or build up) & no "pulsating" was observed.
7. Fuel Efficiency Increase: 1-Quart of fuel ran 1 - 2 hours longer, than normal.
Eddie uses these lanterns, while fishing, so he takes the opportunity to test new products, during that time. Lucky, fella!!!! Needless to say, BriteLyt, Inc. is extremely impressed, with the overall performance of the Fitch Fuel Catalyst.
Overall, I would recommend this product to be used in the lanterns we sell, as our testing was based on periods of testing the lantern for a 3-day period, at 8-hr and 12-hr. intervals. We used Fitch Fuel Catalyst in old fishing lanterns too, with excellent results.

CHUTE FARMS, PORT WILLIAMS, N.S.,Slant Fin Furnace, Riello 40 Burner. Canada
...We have run 3 sessions of production with the Fitch unit and have found about a 15% savings in fuel consumption. This has translated into about a $900.00 savings during the combined three sessions period.There is no doubt that the Fitch Fuel Catalyst has performed as well if not better than you said it would. We now plan to install units on all of our other furnace's through out our whole operation.

ORCHARD CREST FARMS, Poultry Producer,BILLTOWN N.S, Canada
Application=Propane....at the end of the session we compared the numbers again and found that the cost of operation showed a savings difference of $565.19 less for barn#1 than barn#2. A noticiable difference. This translates into about a 18% to 20% savings in fuel not to mention the extra size of barn#1. We are very pleased with the results from using the Fitch Fuel Catalyst....I would recommend this product to all who wish to save fuel and cut down on emissions....
