(A) Acoustic conditioning environment and (B) selection chamber testing environment. (A) Prior to testing, larvae collected from light traps were kept in 6 tanks below shaded conditions with a supply of aerated water. Two tanks were randomly allocated each day to normal reef noise (N), which was played from a portable CD player through speakers housed in plastic bags (CD N), 2 received artificial tone noise (A, from CD A), and 2 were controls with no noise (C). NB: Tanks were 20 cm apart and isolated from each other utilising polystyrene tiles for acoustic insulation. (B) Choice chamber testing environment. Choice chambers were constructed of transparent polythene suppliers tubing (50 cm ), with a central opening for introducing fish and were moored in 12 m water. Here, the speaker is located to the north of the chambers, and as an example, fish in the top chamber display no response, in the middle chamber display an aversion to the broadcast sound, and in the bottom chamber display an attraction to the sound. Half of the trials had the speaker to the south of the chambers.

Liver function tests (also called LFTs) are blood tests that can provide information about how your liver is working. They test the levels of a number of proteins and enzymes that are either manufactured by liver cells or released into the blood when liver cells are damaged.

What size layflat tubing do you need?

Measuring tapeLayflat tubing comes in a range of sizes from 2" to 48" wide. These can be broken down into three categories of layflat tubing: narrow (2-6"), standard (7-15") and wide (18-48").

The size of layflat tubing refers to the width of the polythene as it comes off the roll, i.e. when it is laid flat. Layflat tubing is folded flat so, when the polythene is opened up into a tube, the width of the tubing (when flat) is half of the circumference of the tube (when open).

For example, a layflat tube of size 4" has the following measurements:

  • Width (flat): 4"
  • Circumference of tube (open): 8"

The diameter of the layflat tube, when opened, is often the important measurement to know, as tubular items (e.g. pipes) are referred to by the size of their diameter.

Note: When choosing your layflat tubing and deciding what size you need for the job in hand, always remember that the width of the layflat tubing refers to the flat width, not the diameter of the tube. So a piece of 4" layflat tubing will not fit a 4" pipe into the tubing when opened.

To calculate what size layflat tubing you need:

  • Take the diameter of your pipe (e.g. 4")
  • Multiply by Pi (Π), which is rounded to 3.14
  • This gives you the circumference of your pipe (4" x 3.14 = 12.56")
  • Divide this by 2 (12.56" / 2 = 6.28")
  • The minimum size layflat tubing you will need is the next size up

So, in this example, to fit a 4" pipe you would need a minimum layflat tubing size of 7".

The length of layflat tubing you need would depend on how long your pipe is. Layflat tubing can be cut and sealed to the bespoke length required for each individual job and then sealed at one or both ends using a heat sealer.

Make your own bags - a simple guide

Before starting the bag-making process, think about what you want to use the bags for. Do your bags need to be narrow or wide? Do they need to be short or tall/long?  The answers to these questions will inform your choice of layflat tubing and heat sealer.

The instructions below explain how to make a batch of small polythene bags. In this example, we are making small bags measuring 6” (152mm) wide x 9” (229mm) tall. However, the same method can be applied to create bags of any width or length, provided you have layflat tubing of the necessary size and strength and the correct size heat sealer.

Items required:

Instructions:

  1. Setup your roll of 6” layflat tubing so that it is upright and the open end of the roll is square to the heat sealer, ready to pull through
  2. Place a marker 9” from the heat sealer, on the opposite side to the layflat tubing. This will provide your guide on how far to pull the roll of LFT through to make each bag
  3. Turn on the heat sealer
  4. Open the heat sealer
  5. Pull your layflat tubing slowly off the roll so that the open end passes through the jaws of the open heat sealer
  6. Keep pulling until the open end of the tubing reaches your 9” marker (the tubing should now be laying on the heat sealer, 9” from the end of the tube)
  7. Close the heat sealer, pressing down for a few seconds until the tubing is sealed and cut to form a 9” tall bag
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 to make as many bags as you require.

And there you have it - a simple way to manufacture your very own made-to-measure polythene bags. Once you have the right tools in place, you can run off your own DIY batch of plastic bags in no time at all.

This solution not only provides an economical packaging solution, tailored perfectly to your needs, but it is also fun to do. Give it a try today!

Of course, if you need a batch of plastic bags but don’t want to make them yourselves, then just get the experts to do it.
