The alternative for wrapping bales in stretch film is storing the bales in a tube. The bale tubes are made of stretch polyethylene. A Bale Tubing machine stretches the tube and the bales are pushed in one after another. When the tube resumes its original size the bale is stored with no air included. A typical Elastic tube processing machine has the ability to tube up to 100 round bales per hour!
The Silobolsa® elastic tube is a fast, economical and reliable form of storage for round and/or large square baled silage. The elastic tubes have a thickness of 100 µm and they are available in various sizes.
