Developed to eliminate oil from entering your intake by engine blow-by, which channels oil and trash into your direct air stream from the valve train. This is a common problem on both brand new performance and especially older engines, which just suffer more from blow by due to wear and tear.
The most common problem is making your car emit light blueish white smoke upon start up or even during normal driving. The throttle body handles your main air stream and has a breather tube running from the crankcase to the throttle body. The vacuum from the incoming airstream and positive pressure in the crankcase combine to get oil in the air tract.
Every car and vehicle is set up this way to help eliminate the pressure build-up in the bottom end of your engine enabling the piston to move up and down with less resistance.
Catch cans feature a containment system and separator that force all the debris to get captured and contained in the filter while still allowing airflow thus maintaining full function of the breather system.
Another key problem caused by oil in the intake is that it reduces the octane of your fuel and causes detonation especially in turbo, supercharger and nitrous applications.

I had to wait a couple weeks for my BT catch can because they've become so popular, but it was definitely worth the wait. Very easy install, and it's easy to see its a high quality product the second you unwrap it. I just went with the polished chrome, but damn does it add a nice look while doing exactly what it's supposed to. I've only had it on for a few hundred miles and I opened it up last night and sure enough there was some oil in there...so it's working just like it should. I personally love the look of the BT and from most of the other catch cans I saw for cheaper, it looked like it would involve some "rigging" to make it work. Definitely do not regret my BT purchase.

I just made my own with a water/air separator from Lowes. Cost me $30, and is working great so far.

Not my pics

it never crossed my mind to use one of those for a catch can.. i wonder if it will be as effective? sounds like a good way to save money if you arent after the looks of the billet can

After 600 miles I have about 2 tablespoons of oil sitting in the bottom. When I installed the catch can and cai, I also removed and cleaned the TB. It was pretty dirty on the underside.

Ill eventually get a billet catch can. But this will do for now.
