SOLID BRASS A Permanent Solution to FAILED CORRODING Oil Vapor...
Perfect .. they are the oldest for sure.... and probably longer toothed in rot and disfunction
I think the original Alfa design ( and many Diesel applications) the idea is the oil is separated from the water (in vapor form ) and the oil is the only by-product in the OVS that is fed back to the sump. The suspended water and other components of the blow-by gas, as minute as they are, get fed back into the combustion cycle through the air filter with most of those components ending out the the exhaust pipe as a result of the combustion process. Understand the gases recovered in the OVS are a very small fraction of what is going on in your combustion chambers. Blow-by in simple terms is nothing more than exhaust gases that leak below the combustion (4 cylinder) chambers. Worn piston rings worsens the condition. Blow-by is a function associated with all piston driven engines. By separating the oil from the other by-products of combustion, the OVS was the first step in a long list of operational functions associated with cleaning the air and making engines cleaner and extending their lives.. That's why you can run a set of Spark plugs on new cars for 100,000 miles today and the catalytic converters were added to capture all the other bad gremlins before they existed to exhaust pipe.I installed this one a few years ago. It works fine. I had to modify the Alfa oil separator bracket to accommodate the diameter of this one.

This what I have to empty from the oil catch can at every oil change. This particular catch can can hold circa 250 mL. Because I change my engine oil every 4K miles I've never come close to filling it.
With the factor original oil separator I think the water along with the oil was drained to the oil pan.
