Summary

    An Improved Oil Catch Can

    Improved Racing set out to design the best air-oil separating catch can we possibly could. We focused on a three simple design goals:

     

    1. Maximize efficiency: Separate as much vapor from crankcase blowby fumes as possible with minimal restriction.
    2. Easy to use: The catch can should be simple and enjoyable to use in every aspect including mounting, draining, and cleaning.
    3. Durable: Virtually indestructible. Made from high-quality, reliable components. As with any Improved Racing product, nothing will vibrate loose or come apart under racing conditions.

    The result is the CCS (Catch Can, Sport).

     

     

    Highly Efficient Air-Oil Separation

     

    Improved Racing's CCS oil catch can is designed to maximize air-oil separation efficiency, with a peak efficiency of 85-90%. This is significantly higher than any of the competitor's catch cans we tested, which had peak efficiencies of no more than 60%. These results were achieved during bench testing at air flow rates of 0-4.0 CFM and vaporized oil injection rates of 0.20-0.30 grams per minute.

     

    CCS-700 Catch Can Internals

    CCS Oil Catch Can Manifold Internals

    Tangential Entry Port
    • Air enters the catch can manifold tangentially, causing it to spin.
    • The centrifugal force of the spinning air forces heavier particles to the outside of the manifold, where they combine into larger droplets.
    Stainless Steel Filter
    • Multiple layers of stainless steel mesh of varying porosities are sintered together to comprise a single filter.
    • Effective filter rating is 100 microns. 
    • Filter is made from 316 stainless steel and is washable.
    • An optional 40 micron filter is available for small displacement, naturally aspirated engines if finer filtration is needed.
    Multiple O-Ring Seals
    • Three internal seals (shown in green) were used to ensure that no dirty air bypasses the filter. This is a major contributor to poor filtering efficiency and a very common problem we found in other catch cans.
    • One primary O-ring seals the top and bottom half of the catch can (shown in red).
    Anti-Splash-Back Funnel
    • The stamped aluminum funnel prevents fluid in the reservoir from splashing back onto the exit port (another common problem found in some catch cans).
    • The funnel features spiral grooves which serve two purposes:
      1. They help combine oil droplets so they drain quickly into the reservoir.
      2. CFD simulations have shown they help spiral the air, contributing to cyclonic separation.
    Bell Mouth Plenum
    • Extensive R&D went into designing the exit port plenum.
    • The bell mouth shaped sheds oil droplets collected on its outer perimeter, preventing fluid from exiting the catch can.
    • The large bell mouth opening slows air velocity before exiting the catch can and reduce the probability of any fluid becoming entrained and exiting the can.

    7.0 fl oz (207 ml) or 3.5 fl oz (104 ml) Reservoir

    • The 7.0 fl oz (207 ml) reservoir is more than sufficient for most engines.
    • The 3.5 oz (104ml) reservoir is 1.0" shorter and features a remote drain port for tight engine bays and includes both a drain plug and a -6 ORB adapter fitting.

     

    No Sight Glass Needed

    Improved Racing's quick-release reservoir is so easy to remove that it eliminates the need for a sight glass. Simply push up and twist an 1/8th of a turn to remove the reservoir and inspect the fluid level. No more fumbling or endless unscrewing required.

     

    No sight glass also means improved durability at higher operating temps. Plus, you don't have to struggle to interpret a hard-to-read sight glass to check your fluid level - just remove the quick-release reservoir and look inside.

    CCS Catch Can 1/8 Turn Quick Release

    A powerful wave spring keeps the reservoir locked in place. A safety lock clip is also included just in case you want to be absolutely sure the reservoir cannot be removed.

    Fast & Flexible Mounting Bracket System

    We made the mounting bracket easy to use and remove because some engines bays are tight. Remove the can in seconds by unscewing the green nut. Installing and positioning is just as quick and easy. If you need a little more leverage, just use a 5/8" or 16mm open end wrench on one of the nut's lobes.

    Universal Mounting Bracket Options

    Two universal mounting brackets are available: 90-degree or flat. The 90-degree bracket is included with the can and the flat bracket is available separately. Vehicle-specific kits and mounting solutions are being developed for many popular vehicle applications.

    Positive Safety Lock Clip

    The CCS comes with a safety lock clip. It's peace of mind for crash protection or track events where a positive lock mechanism is required. Push to insert, pull to remove.

    Extensive Testing

    Development of the CCS happened over several years and included ANSYS Fluent CFD simulations, extensive bench tests, and on-vehicle street and track tests. Final prototype testing also included a 9-month beta testing program in collaboration with various road racers, drag racers, and drifters.

     

    CCS CFD Simulation

     

    Comparative testing included Improved Racing's prototypes and several catch cans from leading competitors. We ensured our catch can will beat the competition in filtration performance while maintaining a similar or lower pressure drop. Bench testing focused on maximizing efficiency at peak blow-by air flow rates of 3.7-4.0 CFM, where most other catch cans lack efficiency. The chart below (click to enlarge) shows some of our bench test results. Proprietary information and competitor's names have been redacted.

    Applications

    The applications listed below would benefit from the addion of an oil catch can:

     

    • Direct injection engines.
      • Direct injection engines suffer from exccessive carbon build-up on the valves and require regular cleaning. A catch can will reduce carbon build up on the valves.
      • Valves on port injected engines are kept clean by the detergents in the fuel, but will also benefit from a catch can.
    • Any engine with oil residue found in the intake manifold, throttle body, intake piping, or charge cooler will benefit greatly from the addition of an oil catch can.
    • Any engine with an aftermarket tune will see improvements in horsepower from the increase in octane of the air/fuel mixture after adding a catch can.
    • The CCS is perfect for recirculated, OEM style PCV systems. It can also be used in vent-to-atmosphere applications by adding the optional CCS-40 filter attachment.
    • For built engines with high levels of blow-by and for racing applications requiring a larger volume reservoir, stay tuned for our CCR (Catch Can, Race), currently in development. The CCR will feature larger ports and a 1 quart capacity.
