Loy Instrument became a stocking Maxon distributor in 2001. We had been an Eclipse distributor for decades prior to our association with Maxon. One of the greatest weapons in the Maxon arsenal then and now was the Maxon Valve. The Maxon Valve is that generic trademark or proprietary eponym that, due to its popularity has become synonymous for an industry. No matter who manufactured the valve, it often is referred to as the Maxon Valve.
So, what is it that makes the Maxon Valve such a successful product, it is simple actually. Performance, reliability and durability: 3 reasons Maxon Valves have been the leading choice of industry since the 1920's. Maxon Gas Valves are the only fuel shut off valves with metal-to-metal seats that "wear in", not out. Powerful closing springs provide a reliable closing force for assurance of safe fuel shut off. The natural guillotine action of Maxon Shut Off Valves add a self-cleaning stroke to the valve operation.
All Maxon Valves are 100% tested for function and seal before leaving the factory. All Maxon Valves are available with international agency approvals for a wide variety of services including hazardous areas. Nobody makes industrial gas valves better than Maxon. In today's industry environment, your smart choice for safety, loss prevention and lowest cost of ownership is a durable, long-lasting Maxon Valve.
Loy Instrument’s extensive inventory of Maxon Valves has made us a leader in the nation, providing these robust and reliable valves to industrial and commercial users alike. We are keeping the processes running and heat on when no one else can. In todays economic environment, inventory is becoming more and more of a commodity and Loy Instrument believes in supporting our customers. Our Maxon Valve inventory includes everything from 0.75” to 4” flanged in manual and automatic valves, both cast iron and steel bodies. We have the ability in house to rotate the valves so that once you receive the valve, it is ready to install and get your process back up and running. Many times, our inside sales team can be caught running valves to late night drop off locations because someone needed a Maxon Valve and could not wait until tomorrow. Couriers come in at all hours of the night to get the Maxon Valve they need. One of my favorite stories was from Roy, our inside sales manager who took a call from a customer in desperate of a valve in the middle of the night. They actually flew a private plane to a small airport on the east side of town and met Roy out there. If that is not customer service, I am not sure what is.
