According to several suppliers' websites of gas detectors, a catalytic bead sensor must be installed vertically with the gas sensor pointing towards the ground.
If the gas sensor is not mounted in this way, they say, the gas sensor may not work correctly.
But why is this?
And is a horizontally orientated sensor a problem?
Thanks for your input.
