How to swap the location of any small valve
This video shows how to change the valve position on any Alicat mass flow controller or pressure controller utilizing a small valve from upstream to downstream, or vice versa. Please be extra careful with the display ribbon, as it is prone to rip if pulled on. Your Alicat warranty will not be voided if your warranty sticker is cut during valve swapping.
Note: If you have a medium or large valve controller please contact Alicat for assistance. If you have a controller with a rolamite valve, skip ahead to the Rolamite valve swap video tutorial below.
