Persistence pays off


Interview with Mr. Satish Pathak


Persistence pays off Interview with Mr. Satish Pathak
What does it take to become an ISA Technology Award winner? In this interview with Satish V. Pathak it’s clear that his persistence and insight have paid dividends throughout his career, culminating in the award for his digitally controlted valve which allows for precise dispensing of liquid using a gravity flow.
When asked about his background, Mr. Pathak speaks fondly of his childhood. “As a child I was always yen/ inquisitive not always the best student in the class but I was always very curious and loved to get my hands onto technology. After graduation I worked for NRC Limited which exposed me to a lot of Taylor and Honeywell pneumatic instrumentation along with other analogue electronic instruments. At that time the world was marching on with PLC, DCS and so on — in fact some even believed there was nothing more to be learnt at Nlif about modern instrumentation! However I knew the engineers in many modern plants were sitting in centralised control rooms not getting exposure of handling. Their exposure to handling was limited to replacing add-on cards.
