Drains allow the process water, particles and any contaminants to be carried out of the bowl so the process can operate and perform to its optimum capability consistently. Depending on the process if unchecked drains can get blocked. Once this happens the water level in the bowl will increase, with compound added this can create foam (and mess) and the process time and surface finish will again suffer as a result. If the quantity of particles in the bowl is high then this can contaminate (and even ruin the media) as well as coating the lining of the bowl causing a loss in drive of the media.
