Protect your electronics and improve cooling efficiency with CPC's Universal Quick Disconnects

CPC offers two sizes of Universal Quick Disconnects (UQDs) to support HPC and data center cooling needs. With the continual increase in computing power and density, data center managers and thermal engineers are looking for better ways to efficiently cool high-performance computers packed with heat-generating components and CPC has fittings to help. Data center managers and engineers often overlook the importance of a vital liquid cooling component: the quick disconnect (QD). A QD that leaks could cause extensive damage to computer systems worth millions of dollars. CPC has the solution with robust, purpose-built QD couplings for liquid cooling of electronics. Learn more about the wide variety of fittings available.
