The article proposes a methodology for studying the productivity (capacity) and power consumption of a pneumatic conveyor for active ventilation of soybeans in container-modular storage in farms and the factors affecting them. In determining the parameters of the pneumatic conveyor, the physical and technological characteristics of the grain (soybean) are taken into account. The proposed methodology is based on the method of classical calculation for selecting a pneumatic conveyor with nominal parameters, which is necessary not only for transportation, both vertically and horizontally, but also for active ventilation of grain in containers during storage. The purpose of the methodology is to select a specific pneumatic conveyor for container-modular equipment for soybeans storage in the conditions of farms in Kazakhstan.
