Floating Ball Valves

Floating Ball Valves

  • Description



Under medium pressure, the ball can have a certain amount of displacement and be pressed at the valve seat ring exit and achieves sealing. Floating ball valve structure is simple and of good seal, but since the full load from the ball under pressure is transferred to the ring at exit, its use is restricted in a certain range of pressure size. Generally floating ball valve is applicable to low pressure in small size valve. KCM one-piece ball valve was developed from many years of manufacturing experience, it’s of side entry, simple structure, light weight, good sealing, low torque value, and different sealing

materials that can meet different temperature range.
