What is the difference between a fixed ball valve and a floating ball valve?
- Jul 27, 2017 -

Ball valve for regular operation, opening and closing quickly, light. Fluid resistance is small. Simple structure, relatively small size, light weight, easy to repair. Sealing performance is good, not subject to the installation direction of the media flow can be arbitrary. No vibration, no noise.

Ball valve can be divided into: T-shaped and L-shaped two Species. According to the connection side can be divided into threaded connection, flange connection and welding three.

Floating ball spheres Ball valves with fixed shafts Fixed ball valves Spherical ball valves with fixed shafts Fixed ball valves are a new type of high performance ball valve suitable for long-distance pipelines and general industrial pipelines, safe and resistant to harsh environments Such as the design have been carried out a special consideration. Applicable to all kinds of corrosive and non-corrosive media.

It is compared with the floating ball valve, the work of the pipeline before the valve in the ball before the fluid pressure generated by the force on the ball all the upper and lower bearings, the ball will not move, the valve seal by the spring and the media pressure to push the valve seat to achieve, Will not bear too much pressure, so the fixed ball valve seat deformation is small, the operating torque is light, reliable sealing performance, long service life. Especially for high pressure, large caliber occasions.
