Default Oil catch can not catching oil?

I have the helix catch can that had for over year and I never had any oil going in the tank. Should i be worried about this? My car is fine never loses any oil.

Sounds to me like you're looking for a problem where there isn't one. You should be glad to keep your can clean.

is there something in the catch can that would cause the oil to seperate from the air? ie: something the oil can grab and stick to while the mix is pumped through.

Whar kind of can is it? if it's not baffled/filtered, that might be the culprit.

not necessarily.... there's other reasons such as:

-. in a daily driven car it will take years for just little amount of oil to sit there
-. the can might be hollow (no medium to separate the oil from air)
