HPD oil catch cans / oil air separators prevent oil from entering into the intake manifold and mixing with the carbon from the EGR, clogging up vital components and potentially causing damage.
Modern 4WDs tend to have more parts in the intake manifold such as sensors and EGR valves that can malfunction due to the oil film produced.
The HPD direct bolt on separator kits are ideal for 4WDs running an intercooler or turbo kit and they come complete with mounting brackets, rubber hoses and hose clamps. The separators eliminate oil vapour that can contaminate the intake system and therefore helps keep the intercooler clean (internally). This translates into more efficient cooling and better power delivery from your engine.
The landrover defender catch can kit sits neatly on the drivers side of the engine bay up near the brake booster. using a stainless steel laser cut bracket system this kit is firmly held in place with a 45° support bracket.
Large 19mm ø hose provides easy clear passage for air from the rocker breather creating no back pressure on your oil breather system to give you piece of mind.
Installation takes between 15-30 mins and can be done by most people with basic workshop knowledge and tools.
“Protect your investment fit HPD’s oil separator kit.”
HPD’s Australian made billet CNC machined oil catch can / oil air separators have been designed to reduce the amount of oil from the engines crank case breather entering the intake system.
The issue is with the oil entering the intake system on modern diesel engines fitted with EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) where the exhaust gas valve is commanded by the ECM (engine control module) to open and allow exhaust gasses back into the inlet mixing with the oil that’s been left as a film inside the inlet manifold, thus this process just keeps on repeating itself, causing the issue of the manifold being blocked or clogged reducing the air flow to the engine’s cylinders, resulting in lack of performance, black smoke, engine wear and even engine failure.
HPD’s oil catch can / oil separators come in universal and complete kits with all required stainless steel laser cut bracketry, correct size hose tail fitting, washable internal stainless mesh filters, cut to size oil resistant hosing, bolts, nuts, washer, spring clamps and installation instructions for each vehicle.
