Title: Ball valve

Abstract: A ball valve is provided with a one-piece housing, in which a ball is accommodated such that it can rotate. In addition to an upper bearing point, the ball valve has a lower bearing point, which is located diametrically opposite the first. The ball and the housing are matched to each other in such a way that the ball can be inserted into the housing from the outside via a fluid opening. In order to fix the ball inserted into the housing, provision is made for screw-in elements which have a spherical seal on the front side.
