Consequently, can a gas valve be installed upside down?
It has always been my understanding that a combination gas valve can be installed in any orientation (0-90 degrees) other than upside down.
One may also ask, can a Maxitrol gas regulator be installed vertically? ® devices can only be installed in regulators for which they are certified. ® devices must only be installed directly into the vent connection of the regulator without intermediate pipe or fittings. When using a vent limiting device, the regulator must be mounted in a horizontal upright position.
Also question is, can a water pressure regulator be installed upside down?
The standard and recommended mounting orientation is horizontal with the spring bonnet pointing upwards. Regardless of the orientation, the arrow on the valve body must be in the direction of the water flow otherwise it will not work.
Can a solenoid valve be installed vertically?
Generally, the coil part of the solenoid valve should be vertical upwards. Thus it should be installed vertically in the pipeline on the horizontal ground. If it is limited by space or working conditions, the valve has to be installed on sideways.
