  • In assembling a 3-piece ball valve, swing the valve body back in line, then screw the bolt in.

What is the Floating Ball Principle?

The floating ball principle is a bi-directional sealing used in valves because it allows for shutting off the valve in either direction.

The floating ball principle provides a tight seal for ball valves, especially in emergencies.

It is worth noting that floating ball valves are not used to regulate the flow of the medium. They are purposely for closing or opening the valve.

The three main parts of a floating ball valve include:


The body of the floating ball valve houses all the components of the ball valve. These components are mainly the moving parts of the ball valve.

It is the part that connects to the rest of the pipeline and is usually made from strong, stable material. A good and durable floating ball valve is either made from low-temperature carbon steel, Inconel, carbon steel, super duplex, or stainless steel.


The trim houses components such as sleeves of the valve, ball, stem, and seats. The actuator is connected to the ball by the stem.

The stem of floating ball valves features anti-blowout stems that can handle high and low temperatures. Floating ball valves feature two elastomeric seats.

The seats have seal rings that provide tight shut-off when the valve is turned off and protect the seats against high pressure when the valve is turned on.


The actuator opens and closes the floating ball valve. Different types of actuators can be used on a floating ball valve.

Some of the common types of actuators include:

  • Hydraulic actuator
  • Electro actuator
  • Gas-over-oil actuator
  • Pneumatic actuator
  • Hand lever
  • Motor-operated actuator
  • Bare stem

The different types of ball floating valves are based on either the bore size or the assembly method of the floating ball valve. The types of floating ball valves that you can find in the market include:

  • Full bore floating ball valves
  • Reduced bore floating ball valve.
  • One-piece floating ball valve.
