The distinctiveness of soy / rapeseed meal inspection is that this product during the production process must maintain very low humidity and high temperature (100-105 ° C) and contains a certain amount of solvent. In this form, the product it is unsuitable for storage: the oil contained in the meal is easily subjected to self-oxidation by atmospheric oxygen, the product goes rancid, and its nutritional value may sharply reduce, Reactions of oxidative breakdown of fat could be accompanied by the release of heat, which if stored or transported improperly, can lead to self-heating and even spontaneous combustion of the product. At a relative humidity of 70-80%, the moisture content of the meal reaches such values ​​that favor the intensive development of microflora and the intensification of biochemical processes that cause deterioration of its quality. Before loading, soybean / rapeseed meal must be cooled in the winter months to a temperature not exceeding + 35 ° C. During the summer months, the temperature should be not more than 5 ° C above the ambient temperature.
