From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:
The Cold Block is designed to thread onto your faucet shank and pinch a glycol cold line between the “jaws” of the two pieces. This is an advanced optional component for the discerning kegerator builder. Whereas a block constructed from aluminum is very poor at retaining temperature due to high thermal conductivity, brass has a considerably lower thermal conductivity rating. This is a fancy way of meaning it will get cold and stay cold, keeping your beer chilled all the way from keg to faucet to glass. Note: some beers have more desirable flavor profiles at warmer temperatures, but if you’re going for refreshing, there’s few things better than a frosty pour. This is a set of 2.
This threads onto a standard beer shank and accepts a glycol line. The idea is to keep your shanks cold and reduce foam.
Most homebrewers are not going to have a glycol setup. You could rig up a recirculating pump and recirculate water to accomplish the same sort of thing. You would need to make sure your tubing size is compatible with the blocks. Install one on each shank and loop your glycol/recirculating water line across them all.
