Floating Ball Valve

SVR Global is a trusted Floating Ball Valve Manufacturer in the USA. A floating ball valve is a type of quarter-turn valve that uses a pivoting, or floating, ball to control the flow of fluids through a pipeline. It is called a “floating” ball valve because the ball is not fixed in place; it is free to move within the valve chamber. This design allows the ball to pivot, providing a reliable sealing mechanism against the valve seats.

How does a Floating Ball Valve Works

● The floating ball design allows for rapid opening and closing of the valve, making it suitable for applications where fast response times are critical.
● Floating ball valves have a relatively simple design, making them easy to understand, install, and maintain. The fewer components also contribute to ease of maintenance.
● Floating ball valves generally have lower torque requirements for operation, making them easier to actuate manually or with automated systems.
● When in the closed position, the ball presses against the valve seats, providing a tight shut-off. This characteristic is crucial in applications where leakage prevention is critical.


● Simple Design
● Quick Opening and Closing
● Tight Shut-Off
● Cost-Effective
● Fire-Safe Design

Where is Floating Ball Valve Used
