Why is it important for acetylene cylinders to not be stored horizontally?

To determine

The reason behind the importance for acetylene cylinders to not be stored horizontally.

Explanation of Solution

The acetylene cylinders must be stored in an upright position. The acetylene gas is dissolved in liquid acetone for storing in the cylinder. The acetone is absorbed in the porous filler material. The acetylene gets vaporized and filled in any small space, if available as shown in the figure. If the region lies away from the valve, then the acetone may leak with acetylene and reducing the flame temperature. Also, the regulator or torch valve settings may get damaged by the acetone.

The following figure represents the lying cylinder may cause leakage of the acetone with acetylene gas...
