I've browsed the E1398 papers and was left with one question which
I couldn't immediately find an answer to:

Is the cylindrical design meant for use in one orientation only
(axis orthogonal to temperature gradient/airflow) or can it be used
in any orientation ?

It seems to me that if the axis is oriented vertically, the temperature
gradient problem would apply to this design too ?

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
