EVAPORATOR DRAIN PAN ASSEMBLY
An "assembly" is set of manufactured parts or components that work together in unison as one mechanism or device.
A drain is a channel, conduit, or pipe designed to carry away or channel superflous liquids for disposal or reclamation. A drain assembly is one or more components of a larger mechanism that facilitates as a drain. A drain assembly component may be a pipe, stopper, pan, basket, valve, filter, plug, hose etc.
A drip pan or drain pan is a container for catching material such as water or grease that drips from above (as from the burners of a gas range or condensation from an evaporator). It is usually a shallow rectangular metal or plastic pan used especially for baking and roasting, frying, and water containment and may be connected to a drain or drain pipe.
The purpose of the evaporator is to extract heat from the ambient environment (a room in the case of Air Conditioning or the space inside of a refrigerator/freezer/walk-in in the case of refrigeration) allowing that space to cool to a desired temperature which is controlled by a thermostat.
A pan is any device used as a container or a collector. A pan may refer to a shallow cooking implement used on a burner or in an oven or it may refer to a similar collecting implement used to capture water, condensation, grease, shortening, and other drainage. A pan may also be used to contain processed food items such as meat, fruit and vegetables, and crumbs as they exit a mincer, slicer, or dicer.
