RMJ-Aero is now producing oil separators for homebuilders using Continental and Lycoming engines. These separators are designed to remove oil from the engine crankcase breather line providing the builder with a cleaner plane, less oil consumption, and prolonged engine life from maximum cooking, cleaning, & lubrication. Fashioned after Tony Bingelis's proven design, these separators incorporate several enhancements, including O-ring seals for the lid. RMJ-Aero separators are fabricated from aircraft quality materials, TIG welded, and alodyned for corrosion control. They can be firewall or cooling baffle mounted with the cushion clamp provided.
The separators design allows for easy installation in the breather line by the use of hose clamps. Oil from the separator is returned thru tubing to a port in your engine's housing. Should your engine not have an available oil return port, RMJ-Aero can provide a Self Sealing Clamp-On Adapter utilizing your engine's oil filler neck. Installation of this adapter is easy for both flying and aircraft under construction. When clamped in place around the filler neck, the adapter provides a return port for separated oil and an integral seal, which prevents leakage. Installation and maintenance guidelines are included.
