PLASTIC TUBES TO USE
The SilaTube use stretchable and recyclable plastic tube: 150' (45.7 m) long (35 x 4' bales (1.2 m)) or 220' (67.1 m) long (53 x 4' bales (1.2 m)).
For round bales, we need to know the bales diameter.
|SilaTube||Bales dimensions||Tube dimensions||Tube thickness|
|P-6302||Bales from 48" to 52" (1.22 to 1.32 m) diameter||73" (1.85 m) à plat||0.004 mil.|
|P-6302||Bales from 52" to 56" (1.32 to 1.42 m) diameter||82" (2.08 m) à plat||0.004 mil.|
|P-6302||Bales from 56" to 66" (1.42 to 1.68 m) diameter||87" (2.21 m) à plat||0.004 mil.|
For square bales, we need to calculate the half-perimeter.
Stack height + Bale lengths - 8" (for round corners) = half-perimeter
|SilaTube||Bale dimensions||Tube dimensions||Tube thickness|
|P-6302||36" + 60" - 8" = 88" half-perimeter
0.91 m + 1.52 m - 0.19 m = 2.24 m
|82" (2.08 m) lay flat||0.004 mil|
|P-6302||24" + 60" - 8" = 76" half perimeter
0.60 m + 1.52 m + 0.19 m = 1.93 m
|73" (1.85 m) lay flat||0.004 mil|
CHOICE OF PLASTIC TUBES
The choice of plastic tubes for use with the Pronovost SilaTube is of great importance. The SilaTube was designed at the base to stretch the plastic with great power to allow it to shrink down tight against the bales. This eliminates oxygen and creates an air tight environment. The choice of plastics must therefore be appropriate in order to meet the criteria of elasticity, memory and resistance to tearing and piercing. Also, as plastics will be exposed to sunlight for a period of up to one year, they must be provided with UV protection.
Certain plastic manufacturers are specialized in products compatibe with the Pronovost SilaTube. The present list has exclusively an informative purpose. Pronovost makes no judgment, positive or negative, with regards to the listed companies. The fact that the name of a company is included shall not be interpreted as constituting a recommendation. It is possible that other manufacturers produce tubes compatible with Pronovost SilaTube Pronovost and the absence of a company should not be interpreted negatively.
