^i believe you are thinking about the spring like coils that go outside of a bend on a water cooling loop to prevent the tube from kinks.

That serves the same purpose but has been abandoned for the most part. It adds turbulence and restriction to the flow of water which in turn negatively affect it's cooling performance.

It does nothing to prevent bubbles... /sigh
