Floating Ball Valve

A Floating Ball Valve is a type of ball valve that uses a freely floating or suspended ball to control the flow of fluids through the valve. The term "floating" refers to the fact that the ball is not fixed in place by a trunnion or other mechanical means. Instead, the ball is allowed to move, or float, within the valve body, and its movement is controlled by the pressure of the fluid.

The Key Features of Floating Ball Valves

Floating ball valves, known for their simplicity and versatility, have several key features that make them suitable for various applications. Here are the key features of floating ball valves:
Simple Design: Floating ball valves have a straightforward design, making them easy to manufacture, install, and maintain.
Quick Opening and Closing: Floating ball valves provide rapid opening and closing, making them suitable for applications where quick response to flow changes is necessary.
Low Torque Requirement: Floating ball valves generally have a lower torque requirement for operation, simplifying the use of manual handles or actuators.
Bi-Directional Sealing: Floating ball valves offer reliable bi-directional sealing, allowing for flow in either direction without leakage.
Economical: Floating ball valves are often more cost-effective than trunnion mounted ball valves due to their simpler design.
Self-Relieving Seat: Some floating ball valves have a self-relieving seat design, which helps reduce pressure trapped in the valve cavity when closed.

Floating ball valves are a reliable and cost-effective choice for a variety of applications, especially where simplicity and ease of use are priorities. Their versatile design and suitability for moderate-pressure conditions make them valuable in numerous industrial settings.
