12 T R E N C H L E S S T EC H N O LO GY N OV E M B E R 2018 Houston-based Vortex Companies recently announced the signing of O ' Fa l l o n , M i s s o u r i - b a s e d S A K Construction and Denver-based C&L Water Solutions as its latest licensees of the Quadex Lining System (QLS) featuring GeoKrete geopolymer. The QLS System is designed for the structural rehabilitation of large diameter pipe, culvert, tunnels and other non-round infrastructure. "SAK has a long history and excellent reputation for delivering high quality pipe rehabilitation services," said Vortex Companies CEO Mike Vellano. "We are extremely excited to have them on board as a licensee for QLS." The QLS system is a unique combination of advanced installation equipment and next generation materials, GeoKrete Geopolymer. It is also considered, by many, the purest geopolymer mortar on the market. "QLS allows us to effectively provide a true large diameter rehabilitation system where our traditional methods simply cannot compete from a cost and performance perspective," said SAK vice president of rehab operations Steve Hirtz. Vortex recently announced that its GeoKrete Geopolymer has received "reduced carbon footprint" certification by SCS Global Services. "Partnering with C&L will help address the increased demand for geopolymer pipe lining as rehabilitation solution," said Vellano. C&L's approach to business fits the mold the Vortex Companies looks for in its licensees and strategic partners. C&L is a family-owned firm that places high value on customer satisfaction and offers a broad range of water distribution and sewer collection system solutions. In addition to trenchless rehabilitation, C&L offers in-house engineering, excavation and maintenance services to its customers. "With GeoKrete recently being approved by the Colorado DOT, we now have a large diameter culvert and pipe relining solution to address the state's immediate and long-term rehabilitation concerns," said C&L chief operating officer Christopher Larson.
