Post Oil Catch Can Mod

I have an idea to modify the oil catch can and make it maintenance free. I want to feed the oil back into the oil pan. My question was, is there a valve or something that will make sure the oil feeds down into the pan and also keep it from backing up in the catch can?

What you might try to find is a spring loaded ball checkvalve, (a spring loaded ballbearing). The trick will be finding one that can be used in automotive application, sorry I don't know of a source. We used them in the Navy for steam and hydraulic applications.
