Experience & Activities
Mr. Madhav Kane, earned his graduate [LIT Nagpur, 1978] and Master’s degrees in Chemical Engineering [IISc Bangalore, 1980]. He followed up these academic qualifications with two short courses – on Microprocessors at University of Pune in 1982 and another one in Automatic Control Engg at Universiteit Gent, Belgium [1984-85].
During his professional career spanning 40+ years, Madhav worked in the areas of process design and engineering of large and small projects in the chemical and petrochemical industry segments consisting of both continuous and batch processes. He has focused experience in instrumentation and automation system design – detailed engineering, projects, and installation and commissioning at site for a variety of industry applications. He has experience of working and managing many first-of-their-kind projects in diverse industry segments such as food and dairy as a profit centre head apart from software development projects for automation system design and engineering applications. He has worked as a consultant to various leading organizations.
Madhav’s interest in batch process control dates back to the early 1990s when he was exposed to the concepts of batch process control [that later got formalized into ISA S 88 standard] during his visits to Alfa Laval and SattControl AB, Sweden for project engineering of dairy automation projects. Since then, he has worked on many batch process control projects within food & dairy, soft drinks, beverages, speciality chemicals and pharmaceutical & drug industries as an engineer-manager or specialized services provider-consultant. His educational background in Chemical Engg and professional experience in the user industry as well automation industry and turnkey project supplier Industry, has helped him to see the implementation both from the user’s perspective along with an EPC or Integrator’s perspective.
Madhav is regularly invited as a faculty for training programs in areas of process engineering as well as instrumentation & control. As a Consultant, he provides specialized process design and process control & automation engineering services to the process and allied industries.
