The article investigates and substantiates the operating modes of a container-modular equipment with active ventilation, such as specified (real) productivity, power consumption of the conveying process, as well as the use of a progressive method of controlling the humidity and temperature in soybean storage volume. Experimental equipment is developed which adequately simulates the proposed technology for soybean storage with active ventilation for the calculated data verification. The experiments confirm that the proposed experimental equipment makes it possible to adequately simulate the process of soybean storage with active ventilation and conduct experiments with the regulation of basic parameters such as productivity, power consumption, humidity, etc. using modern methods, devices and digital technologies. Experimental results are presented. Along with this, using the “Strazh Klimat” software, humidity and temperature are monitored during the experiments. Experimental data are obtained by the use of which it is possible to establish the dependence of the conveying height on the air flow velocity.
