Why you need an Oil Catch Can !
With late model diesel emissions systems they are required to return internal fumes from the top of the crankcase and back to the Air intake system. This air often has tiny droplets of oil called Blow-by, and over time accumulate clogging up Air Intake Manifolds, Intercoolers and Turbo Chargers, generally reducing performance of your vehicle. EGR Valves & Coolers are also affected turning the normally dry carbon or soot into a sludgy tar like substance again slowly reducing performance and economy of your vehicle over time.
Mann & Hummel saw this as a great opportunity to utilise technology from their compressed air industry knowledge and adapting it to the filter element used in the Mann Provent 200 – separating around 98% of contaminates which is the key to our product. The Provent 200 is also fitted with an integrated safety valve to guard against irregular crankcase pressure. They say “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery” but beware there are plenty of inferior copies of the Provent 200 on the market, please do your homework and check that it clearly states it is a Mann & Hummel product Made in Germany !
Western Filters being a Mann & Hummel distributor, saw the Provent 200 as a great solution to this problem almost 10 years ago !
