Can gate valve be installed upside down?
Although door valves can be mounted in different orientations around the driving line, the preferred orientation is with the shaft placed vertically. Installation on the reverse is not recommended. Appropriate mounting is essential for the performance of any valve. Install the valve at the flange of the coupling pipe using the appropriate size of the bolt.
