Velan ABV'S floating ball valve designed for on/off general service, offers a high-quality product at a very competitive price ensuring the greatest level of tightness and reliability.
Side-entry floating ball valves are manufactured in accordance with API 6D and BS EN ISO 17292 standards. 
The valve is configured in a forged bolted two-piece split-body design with a small diameter, suitable for medium/lor pressure working conditions.Characterized by simple design, the valve seats are directly inserted into the body.
The upstream flow pressure pushes the free-floating ball against the downstream seat-the resulting compression provides a perfect leak-free sealing solution even after years in-service.
The stem is connected at the top of the ball and allowing the valve to open and close with a quarter-turn movement.
Material selection is fully customizable to meet the customer's project specifications and several unique features are available offering an enhanced technical solution suitable for aggressive offshore environment and corrosive and abrasive fluids.
