These Connections Hold The Air Line Tube  Internally And Externally, Which Increases The Tube Locking Even In Harsh Conditions Of Vibrations Resulting From Engine Work And Malfunctioning Ways. The Effect Of The External Temperature On The Durability Of The Pipe Is Critical, So The Pipe Must Not Be Close To Extreme Heat Sources, Which Will Significantly Reduce The Efficiency And Durability Of The Pipe However High It May Be. The Pressure Resistance Of The Pipe Decreases As The Temperature Rises And It Also Depends On The Pipe Diameter And Wall Thickness As You Can See In The Table. When The Manufacturer Notes That The Working Pressure Of This Tube Is, For Example, 600 Psi Consider That These Are Only In Optimal Conditions And The Durability Of The Pipe Will Decrease As The Conditions Get Worse.
