[APD] Re: Orientation of CO2 Tank
No. The CO2 tank contains both liquid CO2 and gaseous
CO2. When the tank is upright, the gas flows out of the
regulator. But if used on their side, liquid will flow
into the regulator, with bad consequences
"Uh actuall not so, since the output pressure is the same
either way, all you get is gas going "through" the
regulator, i.e. through the metering orifice inthe
regulator and through the lowpressure side of the
If your CO2 is running, go turn the tank upside down and
see what happens."
I just got a refill on my CO2 cylinder and asked them what would happen.
They said that the mechanism inside the safety valve would freeze up and
then start venting gas. The safety valve is the brass nipple-looking thingy
with the holes drilled in it below and opposite the connection fitting.
