These tubes are nothing special. Any plastic tube of the right diameter will do. It should be wide enough to sit on the top of the slot where it widens. Cut it to length and then cut the end at about a 45 degree angle. This is simply so you can get your finger in the tube to hook it out.
Is yours a 10x8 slot processor? If so I or another user can give you the measurements of length and diameter. A hardware store that keeps plastic tubes should be able to supply them

... mixed as a stock solution i have some that is a year 4months old
and works very well, mixed/dilute some say it lasts about 30 days in a tray, i've used some that was
BLACK as coca cola and it worked great ... i've never used ( or ever seen ) a slot processor ..
have fun !
I used to run a Nova Tri-mate, and learned to use Ethol LPD in it, plus a piece of 3/4in plastic pipe for a lid, for longevity. Ethol LPD lasts a very long time especially if it is rebottled and air kept out between uses.
Calbe N-113 / Adolux:Adotol also last a very long time.
Another vote for Ansco 130/Formulary 130. I've used it in my 16x20 Nova for months at a time without going bad. You'll probably exhaust it from printing before it goes bad in the slot.
E72, neutol and moersch eco. 3 months for the later here on a clubmate.
