Dry Pipe Valve.
June 17, 2014 Awarded US patent # US 8,752,639 B2
September 25, 2010 The ECO Group Inc. posts two You Tube videos. These videos are intended to demonstrate
the effectiveness of ECO Apportioner's to control pressure in a fire suppression system where uncontrolled pressure exists.
This incredible video is a real eye opener. Whether you need to retrofit an existing antifreeze system or simply want to maintain
system pressure while offering full open flow during sprinkler operation, the Apportioner is a must. Click the links below
to view the video and see the difference for yourself. www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKzE0QJbX40 , www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6by2d-5lH4

This video is intended to provide a realistic operational demonstration of Non-Differential Dry Pipe Valve Assemblies.
This video is intended to demonstrate the "Future of Fire Suppression." It is amazing!! Look for the "Apportioner" demo
coming soon. Click this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikaUQttTLNA
Safe Antifreeze System for Fire Suppression.
Addressing the NFPA Safety Alert 2010, The ECO Group Inc. Submits it's ECO Dry Valve Line for Patent branded under
the trade-name "Apportioner." The Apportioner utilizes the same design and configuration as it's predecessor dry
pipe valve and utilizes antifreeze as a priming fluid to close the device. The timing being near perfect is intended to allow
for existing antifreeze systems to be reto-fitted for the purpose of controlling system antifreeze pressure thus reducing
or eliminating current issues associated with these systems. www.nfpa.org/antifreezeThe Apportioner is the solution.
Thank you to everyone who attended
the 2009 NFPA Conference & Expo in Chicago. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the ECO booth to witness this quantum
leap in dry pipe valve technology. Thank you to all who make this event possible.
8-11 2009, McCormick Place Chicago, IL Space # 875 The ECO Group LLC. will display and perform
operational demonstrations of 1" through 2" dry pipe valve assemblies. Demonstrations of manufacturing
will be performed on-site!! The unit will be set and tripped and show attendees will be encouraged to set the devices in
a "Hands On" interactive. We will be located directly in front of the NFPA booth off the main aisle. For
the floor plan please visit www.rocexhibitions.com/floorplans/09nfpa/start.html. In addition to fantastic demonstrations, The ECO Group LLC. staff will be on hand to register manufacturers representatives.
Come by and see for yourself why this technology being called "The Greatest
Advancement In Fire Suppression Technology in 75 Years."
Also, look for
us in the NFPA Journal "What's Hot" section of the June 2009 edition page 133.
July 2008 Dry Pipe Valve manufactured by The ECO Group Inc. receives "Green Light" from
Underwriters Laboratories after a successful IPI report.
June 2-4, 2008 Las Vegas,
Nevada The ECO Group, Inc. will attend the NFPA World Life Safety Conference and Exposition @ the Mandalay Bay Convention
Staff will be on hand to recruit Manufacturer's Representatives and Distributors. If you are interested
in becoming a Manufacturer's Representative or Distributor you can contact Robert A. Long @ (248)-860-6544.
April, 2008 The ECO Group Inc. receives a U.L. listing for its dry pipe valve.
June 3-5, 2007 Boston, Mass. After much research and perseverance, The ECO Group, Inc. will
unveil its newest innovation at the NFPA World Life Safety Conference and Exposition. An actuated dry pipe valve that
will suit the needs of residential fire suppression systems 13D, as well as 13R, and 13.
On this initial test,
the actuated dry pipe valve unit and "Plastic" piping was placed within the fire circle of a one hundred
square foot camper. All piping and components were exposed. The unit tripped and extinguished the fire in under ten seconds
using only water at 50 psi. The result was amazing. The fire was contained to the source of ignition with zero visible signs
of damage to any of the surrounding area. The unit itself was unscathed and is the exact unit on display in Boston.
The actuated dry pipe valve, manufactured by The ECO Group, Inc., is intended to finally bridge the gap and provide
the ultimate life safety system at a low startup cost, low installation, and low maintenance. Fully integrational
to satellite, cellular, and land lines, the unit can be monitored 24/7 by The ECO Group, Inc. as well as local municipalities.
