Fuel Metering Skid
A self-contained system that is mounted on a base or platform that measures the amount of fuel being transferred. The fuel metering skid can be a single product or multiple product that can be blended. The metering skid has engineered components or devices that make up the system to accomplish “custody transfer” of the fuel from one party to the other. The system component makeup is required for accounting purposes and for tax reporting to state and federal agencies. The system must be “proved” or certified by the agencies for accuracy. The most recognizable way to identify this proof is on the gasoline pump at the local filling station. There is a stamp placed on each pump that certifies the accuracy of the pump/dispenser and that it is legal for trade. The stamp is usually placed there by the state Agricultural Department, Board of Weights and Measures.
