Maxton Manufacturing Company Obsoletes UC3A/AM Series Valves

Minden, NV- On January 1, 2019 Maxton announced they will obsolete the UC3A/AM elevator control valve series effective immediately.  Maxton produced the UC3A/AM from 1977 to 1983 and since that time the UC3A/AM became a repair/VEP product only.  Maxton will no longer service, repair, nor make/supply replacement parts any longer. Going forward the Maxton UC3A/AM series replacement remains with the current UC4/4M series.

“The burden on field operations and support for the UC3A/AM doesn’t benefit anyone when you compare these valves with the UC4/4M series,” said Karl Keller Marketing Director.

The UC4/4M offers many advancements in total performance, faster set up, pressure/temperature compensation, independent adjustment and ride quality while covering the flow and pressure ranges previously met by the UC4/4M.  Overall, the UC4/4M is an upgrade that will benefit the field on all levels.
