Floating Ball Valves

In the floating ball valve, spheres are floating in medium pressure function, ball of displacement and physical produce certain tightly, compressed the seal surface in exports, ensuring the outlet seal.

That means that the ball is suspended between the two seats. This type of valves is suitable for small sizes and low pressure service. The principal advantage is the simple structure and the light weight.

Floating ball valve, seats are manufactured from a non metallic material, like PTFE, RPTFE, PEEK, DEVLON, NYLON, KEL-F.

Side entry ball valves are assembled from the side. Each part of the body is assembled by bolt for easy maintenence.

Diameters: from 1/2” to 8”
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 2500
Temperature range: -196 C° to +400 C°
Top entry ball valves are assembled from the top. This Valves are generally used for applications that require a minimal disassembly for in-line maintenance of its internal parts.

Diameters: from 1/2” to 6”
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 600
Temperature range: -196 C° to +400 C°

The body is connected with the end by threaded or welding which allows to have a performing valve with a very competitive price.
This kind of valve can reach maximum 4”. The end of our monoblock ball valve are: Nipples, socket welded, butt welded, threaded female/male, etc.

Diameters: from 1/4” to 4″
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 1500
According to ISO 17292: Class ASME 800 – 3000 to 6000 PSI
Temperature range: -196 C° to +200 C°

Ball valve wafer type is manufactured from a round bar in accordance with EN 12516.2; ASME B16.34; ISO 14313; EN 1092-1; EN 1759-1; ASME B16.5; ANSI B1.1. Valve approved according to directive PED 97/23/EC. Available according to directive ATEX 94/9/EC

Diameters: from DN 10 to DN 2000
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 600
Temperature range:-196 C° to +400 C°

This kind of ball valves is used mainly as a draining connection on the bottom of vessels. The no space between the ball and the connection flange, ensuring the complete drainage of all the residual fluids.


Diameters: from DN 10 to DN 150
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 600
Temperature range:-196 C° to +400 C°

ItalBest Valve offer a wide range of Fully Jacketed Ball Valves. This kind of  Valve is provided with a jacket plate which covers the body from one flange to the other. 

The jackets assure consistent heating or cooling of the process media to prevent crystallization or seizing of flow media. This applies especially to media like bitumen and liquid sulfur. In addition, the efficient flow of media is ensured through the elimination of pockets. Steam can be used as carrier to heat the transported media. Following quality assurance rules, every valve is tested again after the jackets have been welded to the body.


Diameters: from DN 8 to DN 1000
Class rating: from ASME 150 to 600
Temperature range:-196 C° to +400 C°
