Custom Fabrication of a Triple Outlet Drain Pan and Fitting for a HVAC Application

Triple Outlet Drain Pan and FittingA customer in the HVAC industry needed a company with the abilities to fabricate precision parts with plastic to exacting specifications. Gemini Plastics was contracted to perform all of the work highlighted here, which consisted of the custom manufacturing of a triple outlet drain pan and fitting. These components were for use in an HVAC application; the finished drain pan and fitting were mounted to the bottom of an air conditioning unit.

The fitting was composed of black ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene), and the drain pan was created from Royalite® R60 or Kydex 100 using a combination of machining and vacuum forming. Our single stage vacuum former was utilized for the forming work, and the turning and tapping processes were carried out on our advanced CNC lathe, which provided dimensional tolerances of ± 0.015". In-process visual and dimensional inspections were implemented throughout fabrication to ensure accuracy. Final dimensions of the fitting was a length of 0.75” and outside diameter of 1.37"; the drain pan measurements were 46” in length, 8" in width and 2" in height. The parts were also bonded for assembly. 75 to 150 units were shipped to the customer in Milwaukee, WI, after a turnaround time of 3 to 4 weeks.
