In independent lab tests, the Provent had been shown to be around 98% efficient. The HPD catch cans scored very badly, around 43%.

I've got a Provent, and after about 10,000km it's captured a bit of blow by, and no water vapour, as it seems the water vapour gets returned and burnt out. Mates with the HPD catch can seem to be catching about 85% water vapour and not much oil

No more efficient than a Provent and you have to use an allen key to get the lid off , as it is held by setscrews. The only advantage is physical size.

Received the ProVent 200 kit yesterday. Now to fit it. I am tossing whether to join Paul (SA) to get it fitted by Cross Country 4X4 onto the firewall or stick with the kit that came with it.

Either case, I have read some people having to source reducers etc or additional elbows and hoses. If I choose to install it as per the kit, what additional parts would I need? I would like to get them beforehand, ready for the install.

Cheers,
Vlad

Can anyone confirm if a provent 200 can be fitted under the bonnet behind the air box on a 3.2 with a safari snorkel that has had the air box moved back? The other option of between the radiator and air box is out for me due to the Jonny tig intercooler.

Iím not to keen on putting it in behind the grill as that blocks airflow and with the new intercooler I need all the airflow possible.

G`day DrewXT.
Interesting claims. My HPD unit captures 75ml over 10,000km and no water. I wonder whose " independent lab " was used ? Go figure.
Cheers,
wilyum.

Hi Vlad, I have the same ProVent kit that you have, (based on the fact that i bought the kit that you linked up on the forum a couple of weeks ago), it was an easy install with only a couple of extra cable ties needed, I only had to trim down the original hose that gets taken off, and I reused it to connect from the ProVent to the inlet hose, the kit came with a reducer, the instructions said to run the drip hose through the wheel well, I feed mine down the firewall away from the exhaust to the underneath, hence the extra cable ties

Cheers

It was a lab in Western Australia by the testing results we were shown.

My Provent has captured over 200ml in 5,000km ...

To determine efficiency at home, start the car and let it warm up, then disconnect the hose that returns to the intake. If it's smoking, that's oil. If it's an transparent gas, it's been cleaned by the catch can. You'll typically see steam if the vehicle isn't hot.

I'm not trying to sell anything, just trying to help guys make an informed decision. The Flashlube catch can is a clone of the Provent of guys want something on a bit more of a budget. It can even use the Provent filter element.

For what it's worth, you never see an HPD catch can on any industrial vehicles, but you do see Provent... Gotta be something in that

I used irrigation reducers from Bunnings when I fitted my PV 200. No issues.

Fuel hose will resist oil penetration
