Oil Seperator Catch Can: Crankcase Ventilation Systems
A catch can crankcase ventilation system is designed to separate and redirect oil and air from blow-by gas produced from within the crankcase. The fitment of a Catch Can helps to preserve engine efficiency, engine performance, turbocharger life and the proper functionality of your electronic sensors.
A crankcase ventilation system also prevents oil and soot contamination from entering the clean air intake, minimizes oil consumption, regulates crankcase pressure and reduces exhaust smoke and smell.
Our preferred Catch Can is the ProVent 200, the ProVent 200 is designed and manufactured by Mann + Hummel in Germany and utilises a fibrous filter as opposed to a steel mesh or billet filter. The fibrous filter is finer than the alternatives on the market, meaning it is both more efficient and has a larger capacity to trap more of the oily mist produced within the crankcase.
The ProVent 200 also utilizes two relief valves in the event of any blockages to ensure no build up of back pressure occurs and nothing effects the safe operation of your engine, coupled with a drain tap to clear excess oil without disassembling the unit the ProVent 200 is - in our opinion the best crankcase ventilation system on the market. The fibrous filter can also be cleaned with a hydrocarbon-based cleaner which means the filter element need only be replaced approximately every 40, 000 km’s.
