The purpose of a Y strainer is to extract unwanted solids and sediment away from gas, steam, or liquid lines to protect meters, control valves, steam traps, and pumps from potential damage.
You can install a Y strainer vertically as long as the screen is in a downward position to trap sediment efficiently.
