Historically, metal was the material of choice for durability of quick disconnects for applications like liquid cooling. However, metal’s weight and corrosion susceptibility have prompted thermal engineers and computing system designers to begin specifying alternatives. Given the large number of quick connectors/quick disconnects found in a single rack of a liquid cooled supercomputer and data center site, the sum weight can be immense and complexity of use for maintenance can be burdensome.
