Can a check valve be installed horizontal or does it have to be vertical?

Position of check valve

Typically it should not make any difference if the compressor tank check valve is vertical or horizontal.

Not knowing the make or model of the air compressor in question, that's all I can say.

What are the circumstances that you have to change the orientation of the tank check valve, please?
