Case Study

KAI-V is helping Oxymem increase QA process productivity.

MABR (Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor) enables efficient and sustainable wastewater treatment plant expansions and upgrades. Oxymem helps clients reach sustainability goals with 'drop-in' Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor modules.

For the first time, clients can control capacity growth and cost through the incremental expansion of Activated Sludge Plants. This advanced wastewater IFAS solution provides a greener and more dynamic mass transfer in biofilm layers than conventional biological treatment system upgrades such as CAS, SBR, MBR and MBBR.

The problem statement

  • OxyMem is rapidly increasing the production of its water treatment units.
  • The current QA process includes an unassisted visual inspection, becoming a bottleneck, and keeping overall productivity below required targets.
  • Oxymem required a real-time live feed processing strategy to identify faults based on classifying in space and time.


Successful Outcomes

  • OPEX Saving: Reduced the time taken to process a complete QA by 50%.
  • Process Consistency: QA is now the same quality regardless of the individual or group making the inspection.
  • Commoditised Technologies Used: Utilised off-the-shelf web cams and a local machine to deliver the solution.
  • Rapid ROI: Entire capability deployed (with models and user training) in two months.
"We selected KEEN AI because their approach was based on a results driven engagement which put risk and reward sharing at the heart of the project ... we loved this transformative approach"
