Wheat bran inspection (including granular)
Wheat bran (including granular) inspection is a process of quality control of goods at different stages of logistic chain, which minimizes major trade risks related to the likelihood of cargo delivered or received not according to agreed specification, not being supplied in agreed quantity or incomplete set of accompanying documents agreed between parties for wheat bran (including granular) export/import operations is issued and received.
CISS GROUP provides wheat bran (including granular) inspection services to large agribusinesses and international trading companies in intermediate storage warehouses, elevators, factories or ports around the world.
The distinctiveness of wheat bran (including granular) inspection is that edible wheat bran is unstable during storage. Storing them with humidity above 13% for a week leads to an intensification of microbiological processes. After 2 months of storage, the number of mycoflora may increase from 10 to 300 times, depending on the storage conditions. At the same time, there is a significant increase in the acid number of fat: from 15-19 to 127 mg per 1 g of fat. Wheat bran shall be transported in bulk and in bags of at least category 5. Bran shipped by rail or other means of transport must be chilled.
GAFTA-accredited inspectors and laboratory technicians from CISS GROUP carry out wheat bran (including granular) inspection at any point of the supply chain.
The main stages of wheat bran (including granular) inspection:
Incoming/outgoing wheat bran (including granular) inspection.
It is carried out during delivery of wheat bran (including granular) to silos or to a port, or at releasing it from factory/silo warehouses. The CISS GROUP inspector will visually assess the condition of the premises for the suitability for cargo storage; will check the cargo itself so that it is dry, not mixed with other cargo, not damp or wet, free from pests, foreign matter, weeds, mold or foreign odors. If wheat bran (including granular) is delivered in bags, the inspector will inspect them for traces of soaking, and if agreed, will perform the selected bag opening for sampling purpose and further visual check of cargo quality.
Acceptance of cleanliness containers / holds of vessels before loading wheat bran (including granular).
This is a visual inspection of containers and empty holds for their cleanliness and suitability for wheat bran (including granular) transportation. The inspector carefully examines their internal surfaces, checks the integrity and condition of locks, hinges and other fasteners on the container doors, rubber seals for container doors and hold covers.
Visual control of the loading process and sampling of wheat bran (including granular).
During loading, the inspector controls the loading of wheat bran (including granular), confirms the gross / net weight during re-weighing; in the case of loading wheat bran (including granular) into the holds - the initial, intermediate and final check of the weight of the loaded cargo by the draft survey method, controls the fumigation process; conducts a visual assessment of the quality of the cargo, takes samples in accordance with GAFTA sampling rules, forms composite samples. At the end of the loading, the inspector will seal the loaded containers or holds. He enters all the data into reports to which the client gets direct access.

Usually for determination of wheat bran (including granular) quality the following standard parameters are used: color, smell, taste, mass fraction of metal-magnetic impurity, presence of mineral impurity, total energy value, mass fraction of ash, moisture content, foreign impurity, presence of toxic elements, pest infestation or presence of traces of infection.
In addition to basic analyzes, laboratory tests are carried out for the presence of pesticides, mycotoxins, GMO, dioxins, heavy metals and radioactive elements in wheat bran (including granular).
At the request of the client, during the loading process we also carry out express analyzes for each pre determined lot.
