Maxton Manufacturing Company Releases New Hydraulic Elevator Shut Off Ball Valve

Minden, NV- On August 18, 2014 Maxton Manufacturing Company released a New Hydraulic Elevator Shut off Ball Valve for use by the elevator industry.  Maxton learned through customer interaction, product evaluation and research that shut off valves now used in elevator systems may not readily be shown to comply with ASME A17.1/CSA B44 labeling or testing requirements.  A shut off ball valve meant for elevator systems has been designed and proven to comply with ASME A17.1/CSA B44 elevator safety standards.  Maxton now provides that tested shut-off valve with a variety of connections, all labeled to meet code standards, in a high quality (Made in USA) Maxton ball valve design.

When Maxton talked with industry professionals it was clear they assumed their shut off valve complied with ASME A17.1/CSA B44.  However, after requests for supporting technical data and labeling more questions than answers were found.  For example, how do WOG markings relate or cross to ASME A17.1/CSA B44 regarding elevator code compliance?  The other surprising aspect was the missing code required labeling for components used in the elevator industry.  “Maxton just couldn’t ignore making this right by filling the niche with our own elevator industry code compliant solution, so that’s what we did.” said Karl Keller Marketing Director at Maxton.  See it first hand at our NAEC booth #834 next month.
