Drip Pan Calculations

DRIP PAN DESIGN RESOURCE

How big is a drip pan? How much will a drip tray hold? What size drip pan do I need?

When it comes to designing drip and drain pans for spill containment, these are important questions to ask. Below we have provided some helpful equations (Yes, Math!) that will assist in answering these questions:

VOLUMETRIC CAPACITY

How much will a certain sized drip pan hold or what size drip tray do I need to hold a specific amount of liquid?

Rectangular and Square Drip Pans

L x W x H = V (selected units cubed)

Round Drip Pans –

π x r2 x H = V (selected units cubed)

AREA (FOOTPRINT)

How big does my drip pan need to be to cover the spill containment foot print involved in my particular requirement?

Rectangular and Square Drip Pans

L x W = A (selected units squared)

Round Drip Pans –

π x r2 = A (selected units squared)

WEIGHT

What is the weight of a drip or drain pan use in my spill containment solution?

Rectangular and Square Drip Pans

(Pan Blank Size x Material Thickness)(Density of Material) = Overall Weight

Round Drip Pans

[(π x r2)+(H x 2 π x r)](Material Thickness)(Density of Material) = Overall Weight

*This calculation is based upon the “blank” size of the drip pan. The Blank Size is the overall length and width of the pan before forming.
