Abstract: A weakly continuous, equicontinuous representation of a semitopological semigroup $S$ on a locally convex topological vector space $X$ gives rise to a family of operator semigroup compactifications of $S$, one for each invariant subspace of $X$. We consider those invariant subspaces which are maximal with respect to the associated compactification possessing a given property of semigroup compactifications and show that under suitable hypotheses this maximality is preserved under the formation of projective limits, strict inductive limits and tensor products.
