Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage]

Gamma Seals Airtight & Leakproof Lid

Gamma Seal Lids by Gamma2

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Gamma Seal Lids: Turn any standard utility bucket into an airtight storage container. Great for storing pet food, livestock feed, charcoal, smoke chips and more. Fits 3.5 – 7 gallon buckets.
  • Lock In Freshness: Gamma Seal Lids can be used to turn any 3.5 to 7 gallon standard bucket into an airtight pet food storage container; Great for storing cat and dog food, cattle feed, birdseed, charcoal, and more
  • Food Safe: Made with heavy duty BPA free HDPE Plastic. Safe to store pet and human food as well as other household items.
  • Gamma2: Keep dry dog and cat food fresh with our collection of airtight food containers; We have wall mounted containers, travel, pantry, and kitchen containers, plus larger containers for large dogs and horses

 

Gamma Seal Lids [Hands on Review] are a great upgrade to standard buckets.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids off.  These are also airtight.  I use buckets with Gamma Seal Lids as my primary storage for bulk grain and recipe kits.

How much grain can you store in a 5 gallon bucket?  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate a  50 lb sack of grain fits in (2) 5 gallon buckets.  That’s an estimate and will vary.
