How To Install A Feed Pan On An Evaporator Pan:

July 25, 2018

Step 1:

Confirm that the length of your Feed Pan matches the width of your evaporator pan.

Smoky Lake has three standard sizes of Feed Pans:

  • 16″-wide Feed Pans are used with our 16″ x 30″ pans.
  • 20″-wide Feed Pans are used with our 20″ x 24″ pans.
  • 2′-wide Feed Pans are used with our 2′ wide evaporator pans.

Step 2:

Install the Attachment Clips. (If you are not using Attachment Clips, that’s OK. Skip to Step 3.)

The Attachment Clips sit on the top rail of your Smoky Lake or Badgerland evaporator pan. The Attachment Clips should be installed facing each other – one on each side of the pan – with the flat edge facing outward. If you have a pan with dividers, the Attachment Clips should be installed by the pan’s inlet port.

Step 3:

Place your Feed Pan on top of the Evaporator Pan. If you are using Attachment Clips, they will “hug” the sides of the Feed Pan to keep it in place.

Can we use a hood if we have a feed pan on top also?

Feed Pans and Hoods are not compatible because you need to be able to easily see and access the feed pan to refill it. If you are using a Hood, I would highly recommend the Float Box.

I have just completed putting my dauntless together. It looks like my feed pan has to have the valve facing towards the back of the evaporator. Cause the connection hose that goes from the feed pan to the float box is to short to have the feed pan valve face the front of the evaporator. Is this done intentionally or did I just get to short of a hose connection between the feed pan and and float box? Thanks Craig

Orientation and location of the feed pan depends on the pan you have. The feed pan valve will need to be near the float box. The hose that connects a feed pan to a float box is a standard size, always approx one foot long. We do have photos in the Dauntless manual as well as on the product pages on this website for reference.
