UNDERSTANDING OIL CATCH CANS: PROTECTING YOUR ENGINE FROM HARMFUL BUILD-UP

Who doesn’t want optimal engine performance and longevity? All car owners aspire to keep their car engines tip-top. The purpose of an Oil Catch Can is to act as a protective barrier between the crankcase and intake system of the car engine. It’s a plus if the Catch Can is baffled and comes with a breather and a valve- all for easy use and efficient cleaning.

What is an Oil Catch Can?

An Oil Catch Can that often comes with an Oil Catch Can Kit is a simple device that is technically an oil/air separator. It catches the fuel debris before it can reach the intake. The vaporized oil droplets are separated from the air/oil mixture coming from the crankcase and then collected into the Can. Clean air exits the output and continues to the intake, preventing contamination from reaching that part of the engine. The oil collected may be reused or disposed of.

How Does Oil Get into the Intake System in the First Place?

A positive pressure builds inside the crankcase as a result of internal combustion from the engine, known as Positive Crankcase Pressure, which is relieved through the hose. The pressurized air leaves the combustion chamber and passes beyond the piston rings. The same oil that keeps the piston rings spinning with the least friction is partially vaporized. The problem arises when this vaporized oil and other contaminants also enter intake along with air through the hose, causing accumulation. This ends up affecting fuel economy and horsepower. This may even cause a misfire.

Mechanism of a Catch Can

In order to prevent fuel debris from building up inside the intake, the Catch Can is plugged into the hose line that runs from the engine’s crankcase to the intake. Through a tube, the air is forced into the catch can’s bottom, where it is filtered and then redirected toward the outlet and top of the can. A hose is attached to the output to complete the circuit and then reconnected to the air intake port. Any oil particles are retained in the filter element of the catch can filter as air flows through it, pooling into larger droplets before they fall into the catch can’s bottom. The oil from the can needs to be removed periodically.
