Case Study: University of San Diego, CA
Municipal Water Treatment – Commercial & Institutional | North America: San Diego, California, USA
In 2014, the University of San Diego began experiencing HVAC issues in several buildings across campus, particularly in the Degheri Alumni Center, a 28,000 square-foot administrative building. Sediment buildup was causing cooling coils to clog, thus preventing air conditioning units from operating properly, which put a significant strain on the maintenance teams' time and resources. In order to restore HVAC functionality, Pall Water’s 5 micron Polyfold filter bag was selected due to its ability to prevent sediment buildup.

The University of San Diego’s technicians were required to manually back flush coils on the roof of each affected building to remove the sediment every 4 - 14 days. A rapid solution was needed to restore proper HVAC functionality and alleviate a time-consuming issue for the technicians.
After evaluating many options, Pall Water's 5 micron Polyfold filter bag was selected due to its strength and ability to reduce the amount of contaminant bypass. The filter bags are capable of handling flow rates of 200 GPM, twice the amount of competing solutions.
The high-performing filter bags have solved the University of San Diego's temperature control issues, caused by sediment buildup. Maintenance workers are now freed up to perform other activities beyond clearing out air handlers. Additionally, unnecessary wear and tear that would have impacted the equipment's lifecycle has been resolved.
