Product Detail

As the name implies, a floating ball valve uses a ball as the structure to shut the pipe's cross section and stop fluid flow. The major characteristic of a floating ball valve is that because the ball lacks a structure to hold it, it floats in the fluid and is held in position by the valve seats. The floating ball valve's ball is unrestricted by any other part, so when the valve is closed and the medium is pressed against one end of the valve (upstream), the ball can produce a certain displacement and press tightly against the sealing surface of the outlet end (downstream) of the valve, creating an outlet seal. Because there are so many different types of valves available, it's critical to comprehend their variations in order to choose the one that best suits the application at hand. Floating ball valves are a type of ball valve where the closing system is suspended. As a result, they have a very simple design and operation and can be used for applications where speed in opening or closing the flow, ease in changing the flow's direction, or ease of installation are crucial. Other designs should be taken into account if there are more difficult requirements present, such as a higher resilience to severe environments, high temperatures, and high pressures. Consider the type of sealing as another crucial factor influencing the decision in those situations, and perhaps use a two- or three-piece design. The choosing process shouldn't provide any major challenges if the aforementioned recommendations are followed. To avoid repurchases or additional expenditures related to replacing valves that did not meet the needs of the application, it is advised to consult NTGD valve, a reputable producer of floating ball valves, whenever in doubt.
