Description

The Model 6 is no longer in production. The assembly was produced from approximately 1948 to 1978. The assembly cannot be repaired in line and must be removed to be repaired. The assembly is flanged on both ends for removal. Special tools are needed to disassemble the unit and field repairs are not recommended. The 6U model is simply the same as the Model 6 except the U means it has been examined by Underwriters Laboratories. The original units were produced under the name E.C. Service Co. instead of Beeco. The bodies were made of galvanized cast iron. All seats were replaceable. The internal hardware was made mostly of bronze. The checks were an in-line modular design. The check springs were contained when the assembly was removed from the piping for repair. On all of the springs, tension had to be released for repair. The relief spring was also contained when the R.V. cover was removed. The assembly had an external R.V. sensing line.
