CPC‘s patented HFC12 Series couplings have flow comparable to many 1/2″ flow couplings in a 3/8″ body size. Compact and lightweight, HFC couplings replace bulky and heavy metal ball-and-sleeve couplings in a wide range of applications. An ergonomic design and a large, shrouded thumb latch pad produce a coupling that is easy to grip and simple to operate. An efficient valve design leads to high flow and low spillage. HFC12 couplings are also available in NSF-listed versions.
According to the International Energy Agency’s 2020 EV report, the electric vehicle (EV) market will grow by 36% annually, reaching 245 million vehicles globally in 2030. DC fast and extreme fast-charging infrastructure is needed to support this growth. And what’s necessary for that?
Fast Charging is Heating Up.
DC fast charging relies on a higher power — over 350kW or more in Extreme Fast Chargers (XFCs). That kind of power generates significant heat. As external converters and EV supply equipment controls are responsible for safely and effectively managing the higher power levels between the charger and an EV, they require effective thermal management. And this poses another challenge. A DC fast
charger necessitates larger conductors. Along with increased charging speed and higher heat, the resulting cables can become bulky and unwieldy.
CPC’s NS1 Series is the smallest, non-drip, plastic coupling on the market. Design engineers find the diminutive size of the NS1 perfect when they’re needing a fluid connection in a compact space. Packed full of features, the NS1 Series includes non-spill shutoff valves that ensure drip-free disconnects and eliminate the need to purge air from the system. With its easy-to-use latch, the NS1 couplings offer strength and superior performance in a small form factor.
The NS1 ability to rotate allows the tubing to move freely or relax without kinking or leaking. With its functionality-sized latch, NS1 couplings connect and disconnect in any orientation.
CPC’s APC Series couplings feature a plastic thumb latch, fewer moving parts, and a smooth contoured design to deliver ease-of-use and excellent flow in a compact size. The patented APC Series has been expanded to include couplings with valves and thumb latch shrouds. A more rugged design on some models adds durability to increase the APC’s application range.

1/8” flow is designed specifically for liquid cooling applications. With a small form factor for tight spaces, Everis LQ2 connectors offer a high-flow capacity to optimize system performance while providing ultra-reliable, dripless connections and disconnections to protect valuable electronics. Everis LQ2 fittings use patent-pending valve technology that eliminates drips and are designed for long-term use. EPDM and FKM seals are standard options for compatibility with glycol/water or dielectric coolants. For other material and termination, options see your regional CPC sales representative.
Everis™ BLQ4 Series quick disconnect couplings provide ultra-reliable, dripless connections and disconnections that protect valuable electronics. Designed specifically for rack-mounted liquid cooling applications, Everis BLQ4 blind mates utilize patent-pending valve technology that eliminates drips and is designed for long-term connected use.

NS6 Series couplings feature non-spill valves at a great price. Use the NS6 when even a few drops of spillage pose problems regarding safety, media cost, or environmental regulations. These innovative couplings are lightweight, chemically resistant, and easy to use. The non-spill design virtually eliminates spills, minimizes downtime, and enhances operator safety. Soft-touch overmold makes them comfortable in the hand and very attractive.
The 1/4″ flow DPC Series couplings feature a dual port connection in a contoured design that delivers ease-of-use and excellent flow in a compact size. Made from acetal thermoplastic, the DPC Series includes valved and non-valved couplings with a single plastic thumb latch. One-hand operation makes the DPC Series the choice for simple, simultaneous connections and disconnections where two fluid lines are required.
No matter what type of packaging and dispensing products you require, you need them to be accessible, convenient and safe to use. With CPC couplings, you can instantly make connections to flexible and rigid bulk packaging systems. Simplify operation, minimize costly or dangerous spillage and even incorporate our RFID-enabled IdentiQuik® coupling technology to control, protect and streamline your valuable fluid.
What do coffee, beer and tea all have in common? They create an undesirable mess when they’re spilled.
With CPC’s reliable quick disconnect couplings, you don’t need to access a water shutoff valve, use separate tools to remove existing fittings, clean up spills from tubing or apply sealant to prevent leaks. These easy-to-use solutions require no tools for connecting or disconnecting, and they feature automatic shutoff valves to stop water flow, preventing leaks and spills. This makes them ideal for manufacturers and a relief for service professionals. For applications in hard-to-reach places, CPC couplings feature pivoting elbows to help avoid kinks or unnecessary bends in the fluid lines. They can be used with braided, non-braided and copper tubing, and they eliminate the expense of additional parts.
