Floating Ball Valves Offer Economic and Reliable Option in Simple On-Off Process Applications

Jan. 24, 2009
Floating Ball Valves feature a 2-way floating ball design to deliver cost-effective, reliable operation in most on-off process applications up to 10,000 psi.  Adjustable packing, and a blow out resistant stem with stem bearing, promise high cycle life and low torque operation.  Independently adjustable spring loaded seats provide long valve life and repeatable, leak-tight performance in critical service process isolation, sour gas, hydraulic process fluid and automated service with actuator applications, among others.  Floating Ball Valves are designed and manufactured in the USA.Standard mounting configurations include panel mounting with a panel nut, two bolts through the panel into the valve body, or bolted through the valve body mounting holes with a dual bolt pattern.  Standard available port sizes are 3/16”, ¼”, 3/8” or ½”.  Standard connections include Male of Female NPT, M/P Cone and Thread, and H/P Cone and Thread.  Typical materials of construction include 316 cold worked stainless steel, glass-filled Teflon packing, glass-filled PEEK seats and Viton seals, with other materials available upon request.  Large selections of tube and pipe fittings are available, as are options such as handle configurations for color coding and valve lockout, and wetted parts made from other exotic materials.  They are available with electric, pneumatic or hydraulic actuators and accessories for remote operation.Working Pressure: Up to 10,000 PSI, Port Sizes: 3/16”, 1/4”, 3/8” or 1/2”, Standard Connections: Male or Female NPT, M/P Cone & Thread, H/P Cone & Thread.
