There is no specific maximum value for the crawl-delay directive in robots.txt. However, search engine crawlers typically interpret values greater than 10 to be equivalent to an infinite delay. So while there is technically no maximum value, values higher than 10 are unlikely to have any practical effect on search engine crawling behavior.
