gas fire connection pipe


Just bought a Valor Black Beauty Slimline gas fire the pipe supplied with the fire has a flat piece in the middle of it, I blew through it and air comes out slowly so it isnt blocked, looks like the flat piece has been manufactured into the pipe it has,nt been crushed. Why is it like this. Thank you for any help.
