Default when the datasheet says "vertical mounting: up or down", does it mean...

I can mount a tube rectifier upside-down?

need to have it upside-down for a while so I can test a CCS circuit and the CCS circuit is mounted on the underside of the aluminum sheet.

I need to turn a trimmer so get the correct current output.

thanks for the reply.

Yes, you can mount it upside down.

Dont mount mercury vapour rectifiers such as the 83 upside down though.
Be sure your foil hat has a good low impedance ground.
