Positive Displacement Flow Meters

Proven robust technology

The SATAM Positive Displacement meter (PD meter) is a system with freely-moving blades used to measure white petroleum products such as fuels, bio-fuels and refined liquid hydrocarbons. Its simple design using only two pairs of blades and one moving rotor means Satam PD meter is exceptionally robust and also generates significant savings on maintenance costs as the meter boasts outstanding metering accuracy and stability.
