Drain Pan Strips & Tablets - OEM


Hydroemission Drain Pan Tablets are a safe and environmentally friendly way to prevent sludge build-up, overflows, and odours in air conditioning and refrigeration condensate drain pans. 

They work by slowly dissolving in the condensate water and releasing suspending and dispersing agents that keep sludge particles from sticking to surfaces. 

The tablets can be customised in terms of color and formulas, adding fragrances, essential oils, or choosing actives that are environment friendly and can be safely released after dissolution. 

For usage in all types of A/C air handlers, fan coil units, window units, mini splits, and refrigeration condensate drain pans.

Form: Solid strip/tablet, rubbery texture 
Application: Drain Pan Treatment - Slime Prevention on Condensate Drain Pan
Duration: one Drain Pan Tablet lasts up to 6 Months, depending on environmental conditions

To use a Drain Pan Tablet, place it in the condensate drain pan away from the drain opening. As the drain pan begins to collect condensate water, the tablet will adhere to the pan and slowly dissolve, providing treatment. The Drain Pan tab will not float or move in the drain pan, and over time, it will completely dissolve. When the product is no longer visible, it is time to replace the tablet. 

In other words, here is a step-by-step guide:

  1. Find the condensate drain pan. This is usually located under your air conditioner or other HVAC unit.

  2. Place the drain pan tablet in the pan, away from the drain opening.

  3. Wait for the tablet to adhere to the pan and begin to dissolve.

  4. Once the tablet has completely dissolved, replace it with a new one.

Sizes suitable for AHU of 5, 10, 30 Refrigeration Tons.


Drain Pan Strips are specially designed to fit in the small drain pans of mini-split air conditioner air handlers and other tight spaces.

Place the strips inside the inner edge of the drain pan, so they sit flat.

As the evaporator fins collect condensation, the strips will slowly dissolve and release a treatment that prevents sludge, odors, and overflows.

Drain Pan Strips are sized to treat units up to 5 tons, but they can be cut in half to treat multiple smaller evaporators.


In other words, Drain Pan Strips are a convenient and effective way to keep your mini-split air conditioner's drain pan clean and functioning properly.

They are easy to install and require no maintenance, other than replacing them every few months.


Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use Drain Pan Strips:

  1. Turn off your mini-split air conditioner.

  2. Locate the drain pan. It is usually located under the indoor unit.

  3. Remove the drain pan and clean it thoroughly.

  4. Place a Drain Pan Strip inside the inner edge of the drain pan, so it sits flat.

  5. Replace the drain pan and turn on your mini-split air conditioner.


Sizes suitable for Slit Units of 5 Refrigeration Tons or less.
