The OCaml "float" value is actually double precision.  From the manual:

Floating-point numbers

Floating-point values are numbers in floating-point representation. The 
current implementation uses double-precision floating-point numbers 
conforming to the IEEE 754 standard, with 53 bits of mantissa and an 
exponent ranging from -1022 to 1023.
