Maxton Manufacturing Company Releases 3” Hydraulic Elevator Shut Off Ball Valve

Minden, NV- On February 17, 2017 Maxton Manufacturing Company released their 3” Hydraulic Elevator Shut off Ball Valve design for code compliant use by the elevator industry.  This product rounds out the ASME A17.1/CSA B44 code compliant elevator shut off ball valve series for Maxton with the commercial offering of (2”, 2.5” & 3”) sizes.  It was learned through customer interaction, product evaluation and research that shut off ball valves most commonly used in elevator industry don’t meet ASME A17.1/CSA B44 code requirements.  The Maxton elevator shut off ball valve design intends to provide elevator companies a way to correct that shortfall.

When Maxton talked with elevator industry professionals it was clear they assumed their shut off ball valve complied with elevator code.  However, after requests for supporting technical data and labeling more questions than answers were found. “With this additional 3” valve size Maxton gives elevator companies a complete solution for the most common commercial pipe sizes used in the elevator industry,” said Karl Keller Marketing Director at Maxton.  Give Maxton a call 775-782-1700 or click and choose the elevator shut off ball valve size you require.
