Gas outlet MC 70 is self-closing, i.e. they close automatically the gas flow when the connected equipment is released from the socket. With a simple turn, the equipment can connect or disconnected to the gas outlet's coupling. The gas outlet is available for exposed or recessed mounting. The gas outlet is gas specific according to hospital standard and thus not confusingly similar, which means that equipment designed for the particular gas can not be connected to the wrong socket. A service valve is mounted in the valve housing, which facilitates engagement in a way that the gas flow is switched off when the quick coupling operation is to be dismantled. The gas outlet comes with a nameplate for the specific type of gas color code and a protective cap that prevents contaminants from entering the outlet.
