The "ProVent 200 series" style catch can is the newest innovation for crankcase ventilation. It is specifically designed to accommodate the latest generation of turbo-charged engines. Its compact and robust design allows flexible installation locations on the engine or in the engine compartment.
It has the following advantages over other solutions:
Highly efficient oil separation as a closed as well as an open system providing ideal protection for the turbocharger and other components installed downstream
Low pressure loss
Less motor oil consumption in comparison to less efficient separators or conventional open systems
No electrical energy required
Maintenance friendly - fittings are not removed during element maintenance, a cap at the top allows full access inside w/o disconnecting a single hose.
Efficient filter media to separate air and oil vapor, as well as using a "vortex" strategy to fling heavier oil and water particles outward to the sides of the can
Filter is easily cleanable and serviceable w/o disconnecting any hoses.
1" nipples in and out, and a 1/2" drain nipple which allows clean oil to drain back to the sump.
Pressure vent in cap to prevent over-pressure in the crank case
Vacuum limiting valve in lower nipple to regulate vacuum in the can
Highly adjustable mounting bracket can be swiveled 180 degrees around can
Strong and light plastic construction
Top 1" Nipple should be connected to crankcase, lower port can be vented to atmosphere or the intake such as Turbo or Throttle body inlet
