Double hose clamps aren't necessary if the nipple doesn't go that far into the tube and secondly if you have the right hose and nipple you technically don't even need a hose clamp. And furthermore, any tubing will take at least 100psi. I know thats a generalization but I have used some of the crappiest tubing ever and it swelled but never burst.
