|Short Description:||Principle of the forged steel floating ball valve: This kind of ball valve has a floating ball supported by two valve seats. Under the medium pressure effect, a certain displacement can be generated by the ball itself so as to be pressed onto the seat seal ring at the outlet, guaranteeing tightness at the outlet.|

|Working Type:||Ball valves utilise a hollow ball that allows a flow through it when in the open position and isolates when closed. The ball is driven via a spindle that fits into a slot milled into the hollow ball, which in turn is operated by a lever to open and close the ball. The ball valve spindle is encased in the valve body neck and is sealed by a range of neck seals, to prevent leakage, in addition, the ball is sandwiched between two body/ball seats that ensure positive sealing.|
|Applications:||• Ball Valves are used for flow and pressure control and shut off for corrosive fluids, slurries, normal liquid and gases.
• They are used in the oil and natural gas industry, but also find a place in many manufacturing sectors, chemical storage, and even residential uses.
