North American Pipeline Services Becomes Licensed Installer of The Quadex Lining System
HOUSTON — The Vortex Companies recently announced the signing of North American Pipeline Services, LLC (NAP) as a new licensed installer of its Quadex Lining System (QLS) featuring GeoKrete® geopolymer. The QLS System is designed for the structural rehabilitation of large diameter pipe, culvert and other non-round infrastructure. “The increased acceptance of geopolymer lining as a preferred method of trenchless rehabilitation is driving interest from contractors across the country; we are committed to working with partners, like NAP, who are committed to quality, customer service, innovation and teamwork,” stated Mike Vellano, Vortex Companies CEO.
The QLS system is a unique combination of an advanced installation equipment system paired with GeoKrete® Geopolymer, considered by many as the purest geopolymer mortar on the market. “There are several geopolymer products on the market, but none that perform like GeoKrete or can be applied with the consistency that the QLS system offers,” said Tom Mullen, owner of NAP. “The addition of QLS allows us to offer a proven and more cost-effective method of large diameter pipe rehabilitation, rounding out our trenchless offering which already includes inspection, pipe cleaning, manhole rehab, CIPP and grouting.”
QLS’s advanced design and small construction footprint bodes well for NAP who routinely works on project sites in congested areas and older neighborhoods. “We designed this system to be very versatile which allows our licensees to bid on projects in areas where traditional contractors simply cannot reach or access,” added Vellano.
Since its beginning in 1974, North American Pipeline Services has become key player in trenchless repair solutions in the Northeast. NAP offers a variety of services including CIPP lateral lining, UV spot repairs, mechanical joint seals and sleeves, manhole and catch basin relining, grout injection of manholes, mains and laterals, and service lateral to main connector utilizing UV technology.
