One of the indicators that will help you to detect any possible problems with the products storage inside the silos is Heating.

According to the Department of Grain Science and Industry (Kansas State University), heating is the most common indicator of a problem in stored grains and oilseeds. High grain temperatures normally indicate either microbial or insect activity. If left unchecked, this may lead to heat-damaged or charred grains due to the phenomenon of stack burning.

Because of this danger, hot spots in stored soybeans must be cooled or dissipated before they reach the critical level. If no action is taken when heating in soybeans occurs, either the product will be lost by stack burning (charring) or at worst, the entire facility will be lost through fire.

Warning! Aerating soybeans when fire has already started makes the situation worse.

A temperature monitoring system in soybean storage silos is essential. Immediate corrective measures for heating cannot be over-emphasised.
