We are experts in hydrocarbon metering solutions. We develop, manufacture, market, maintain and renovate metering systems for the hydrocarbon supply chain.

 

Specifically designed for custody transfer metering of liquid petroleum products, LPGs and non-corrosive chemicals, all our metering systems are made in France. They are used in oil depots, on oil road tankers, aircraft refuellers and fuel dispensers for loading, unloading, transfer, blending and additive injection operations. Satam also provides turnkey solutions for oil depots including metering systems, flow computers, data acquisition systems, automation and supervisory systems.

Worldwide certified metering systems

satam1

Satam equipment is designed for custody transfer and fiscal metering of liquid hydrocarbons and LPGs. Metering systems have pattern approvals subject to European regulations (Measuring Instruments Directive) and international recommendations (OIML R117). Many national accreditations are also available to satisfy country-specific requirements. ISO 9001 and ATEX certifications, electrical and chemical work authorizations and on-site verification approvals ensure our expertise is genuinely comprehensive.

Positive displacement meter ZC 17

satam2
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.
