Satam Meters


ZC 17 POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT METER

The SATAM Positive Displacement Meter (PD meter) is a system with freely-moving blades used to measure petroleum products such as fuels, bio-fuels and refined liquid hydrocarbons.

Its simple design with only two pairs of blades and one moving rotor makes it exceptionally robust and allows the user to make significant savings on maintenance costs.

Sectors of Application
Oil Depots
For oil product reception and loading stations for trucks

Hydrocarbon transportation
Distribution of fuel oil or fuel by road tanker

Aircraft refuelling

Aircraft dispensers and aircraft fuelling tankers

Army
Depot supplies and loading of trucks

Transport companies
Refuelling of locomotives, trucks and public transport coaches

Marine applications

Refuelling of ships

Mining sites
Refuelling of trucks or site machinery

Operating Principle

The product enters the measuring chamber following the direction of the arrow. The rotor and blades assembly (1-2) is set in motion by the pressure of the liquid on blades. A certain amount of liquid (3) is held between 2 blades and then directed to the discharge manifold. The volume of liquid measured at each rotation is therefore equal to 4 times the measured quantity (3). The smooth curves the meter pieces provide a steady, non-fluctuating flow resulting in low head loss.











Key Points


Reduced pressure loss
0.3 to 0.5 bar at maximum flow rate

Low maintenance costs
Simple and robust design with mechanical components interchangeable between the different models

Stability of measurements
Accuracy of measurement guaranteed over a period of many years without any drift in the calibration curve

Modular design
Wide range of accessories for performing customized measurement applications
