Floating Ball Valves feature a ball that floats between the two seats and uses line pressure to push the ball downstream for a positive closure. Floating Ball Valve Characteristics include:
- No lower stem, providing savings during constrution
- Relatively small size range, typically from 1/2″ – 12″
- Tight sealing ability via the ball on the seat
- Low operating torque
- Downstream sealing only
Floating ball valves will provide tight seating with low torque, while being well suited to multi-port applications.
A variety of ball valve configurations also exist, with one piece flanged, two piece flanged, two piece threaded, and three piece threaded options available.
