Machine park

The core business of the machine park is the manufacturing of equipment and components for a wide range of industry sectors including offshore oil and gas, upstream refineries, power generation, mining. paper, food and drink and manufacturing.

Components are manufactured from customer entrusted drawings, design prepared documentation or indeed samples.

All operations are carried out within the Integrated Management System including ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001.

The modern machine park boasts traditional and modern CNC tools including multiple milling machines, lathes, turning centres, CNC wire cutting machines, tool grinding etc.

Spill Absorbents

Dealing with spills for many is a major inconvenience, taking workers away from their core activities. Many spill products are not absorbent (sand and granules), hazardous to your health (granules) and just contribute to making a greater environmental mess. Luckily there are fast acting, clean environmentally responsible solutions and Spectrum has a range from which you can select.

Spill Hound is a third-generation absorbent based on highly modified plant fibres. The Spill Hound fibre structure has an ultra-high affinity for oils and gives unequalled performance in spill containment and control.

Spill Hound can be recycled up to 6 - 8 times (depending on the nature of the spills) when used through the spill hound recycling system.

Spill Hound Applications

  • Encapsulation of hazardous hydrocarbon waste and sludges
  • Containment of oil & solvent-based paint spillages
  • Preferential absorption of oil in the presence of water

Gaskets and Sealing Materials

We provide manufacturers and service companies with innovative sealing products. We distribute filled-PTFE, compressed non-asbestos sheets/gaskets and semi-metallic gaskets. Our commitment to quality and service ensures that our customers receive high quality products in the shortest lead time possible. We offer design, engineering, technical and sales support, to both end users and distributors.

All of these products are tested throughout the manufacturing process by the onsite laboratory staff to provide consistency and traceability to our customers. This also applies to our line of metallic gaskets. All of these product lines are marketed under the Durlon® brand name.

Durlon® Sealing Products have the widest possible range of service applications, therefore, the number of gaskets required to be inventoried can be greatly reduced. This impacts process safety because limiting the number of gasket styles reduces the chance of installing the wrong gasket in the wrong service. For these reasons more and more original manufacturers and industrial consumers are specifying Durlon® gasket materials for their needs.


  • Unsurpassed seal ability drastically lowers emission levels
  • General purpose sheet out performs traditional economy sheets
  • Anti-stick coating reduces time spent removing gaskets
  • Good compressibility and recovery maintains tight seal

Ad-Blue Pumps and Accessories

Modern diesel cars, trucks, agricultural, forestry machinery as well as numerous construction machines are equipped with AdBlue tanks. Those have to be filled with urea (AdBlue) on a regular basis. 

Spectrum Engineering Solutions is offering tailor-made Adblue filling stations and tank systems. Available are mobile tank and stationary AdBlue filling solutions. The current range of 12V, 24V or 230V is giving the technician unlimited options to (re)fill AdBlue tanks.

Why do Diesel engines need AdBlue?

Diesel engines emit nitrogen oxides (greenhouse gases) due to their design. Those gases have an direct impact to the depletion of the ozone layer. In order to reduce the emission of this climate changing gas, the legislation has limited the maximum of the pollution, combustion engines can do. 

This is known as the EURO 5 and EURO 6 standard. In order to meet those limits, AdBlue (urea) is injected directly in front of the SCR catalytic converter. This enables modern diesel engines to convert the nitric oxide in to aprox. 90% harmless nitrogen and water.
