Minden, NV- On January 31, 2022, Maxton will release a new, made in USA, replacement of its ¾” Female NPT Hydraulic Elevator Shut Off Ball Valve for Residential / LULA applications. This release will be a rolling change to exhaust previous inventory during February 2022. The new BV3-4 maintains a 5:1 safety factor for hydraulic elevator use and is rated for 1000 PSI max operating pressure to match Maxton’s other Residential / LULA products. Additionally, the BV3-4 will be included in the RV100 Conversion Kit.
Maxton made this strategic change for two reasons, first to reduce sourcing constraints and second, to grow it’s made in USA product focus. While there are minor dimensional and weight differences between old and new; the two products are as close to like for like as possible with multiple customer confirmations to form, fit, and function.
