Air line

:"See also Airline (disambiguation)":"For the Air Line rail trail in central Connecticut, see Airline State Park.".An air line is a tube that carries a compressed air supply, e.g. to inflate tyres or power compressed-air tools. Air line is most commonly used for suppling compressed air to air tools in workshops and in air brake systems on larger vehicles. The most common sizes of air tubing are one quarter inch and three eights inch outside diameter tubing although a complete range of tubing in both standard and metric sizes is available.
