Hydronic expansion tank mounting


I'm installing an Extrol Model 60 expansion tank in my hot water baseboard system. It's a bladder type tank. Any problem mounting the tank horizontally instead of vertical?

The installation guide says to mount vertically only, could be so the diaphragm doesn't get wrapped up on itself and prevent issues on expansion.

My apologies. I just re-read the instructions and sure enough, the answer is right there. Thanks for pointing it out.

No problem...don't forget an air vent on the system.
