OxiPlant works on the principle of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA). The device consists of two specially fabricated stainless cylinders, each filled with a measured quantity of a specially made material called Zeolite. Dry, cooled and Pressurized air is alternatively passed through these cylinders. Nitrogen molecules get thermodynamically adsorbed by the zeolite crystals, allowing oxygen to flow out as a desired product. While this principle has been well known for over a century, the challenge lies in engineering a solution around the principle. Building OxiPlant involved mechanical design and fabrication, pneumatics circuits with proper understanding of pressure, temperature and flow controls, and more critically electronics which control, monitor, and automatically operate the entire oxygen production cycle.
Uniqueness of OxiPlant and its differentiation from commonly available concentrators lies in its Configurability, Flexibility, Scalability, and Monitorability. It is configurable to support many alternate processes such as PSA, VSA, VPSA etc. It is flexible to support production of Oxygen or Nitrogen or other gases. It is scalable to higher throughput up to about 20 lpm. It is monitorable as many temperatures, pressure and flow probes can be hooked up to provide valuable performance data that would form basis of plant tuning.
Prof. M R Doreswamy, Hon'ble Chancellor, has congratulated Tejas P Karanji on his achievement and encouraged him for more inventors.

Currently interning with InMobi, during his earlier semesters, he participated as head of army permissions in Samarpana, won CNR Rao Merit Scholarship in semesters 2,3 and 4, MRD Scholarship in semesters 5 and 6, and distinction award in all semesters. He was among the top 15 percent of the batch in each of the semester maintaining a GPA of 9. In his words, “Coming from a humble background and switching from Ranchi (my native) to the silicon valley of India, Bangalore, I surely had big hopes and aspirations, and PES University was able to cater to much of those dreams of mine. The recent years were full of achievements that I couldn't even dare imagine earlier. I was able to score 99.23 percentile in CAT 2020 in the first attempt, thanks to the dedication and discipline I followed and support from PES. It's been a beautiful journey and I'm surely looking forward to what other things life has to offer.” He felt that his time at PES University was a rollercoaster ride during which he learnt that everything teaches something, and however small the thing maybe, when one puts in 100 percent effort, expectations would not be a factor and the result would just be an after-effect.
