Hello All,
Anyone using oil separator made by Antisplat Aero?

Thanks.

I know quit a few people are, but there have been problems with the port that dumps the air into the exhaust clogging and blowing out the front crankshaft seal. Unless that problem has been addressed, don't use that part of the system.

IIRC there has been a discussion or two on oil/air separators that folks have been happy with. Seems like Super Slime fighter might have been one.

Had a similar issue with my Andair separator. A press fit baffle came loose and blocked the exit line causing a lot of engine oil leaks. A cutter pin holding the baffle fixed the problem.

I'm not a fan of air/oil separators. If you have too much oil on the belly from the crankcase breather then there is a problem lurking in your engine. The air/oil separators are a bandaid that covers up the results of excessive blow-by from broken or worn-out rings. As has been posted already, failure of the separator can be terribly expensive.
A better (in my mind) solution to an oily belly would be to extend the breather tube down lower in the slipstream. IMHO.

Is there a reason why a well vented container to catch the blow by mounted low on the firewall could not be used?

None at all. Use a tall glass jar ..... like olives come in ..... and put a stainless scrubby (or two) in the bottom around the tube. Depending on the amount of blow-by you may get some mist of oil near the jar. Check the oil level in the jar during your preflight if you can see it through the air exit ramp.

Not necessarily true. There is an art to finding where to terminate the breather tube so that it is in neither high nor low pressure area. If in low pressure area, extra blowby departs the crankcase. I have seen brand new engines, built with rings in spec, that had too much oil out the breather tube. It most certainly was NOT an mechanical problem. IMHO, breathers with or without separators should not be connected to the exhaust system. The relative pressure also determines how much oil you can keep in the sump. A well designed separator should have nothing that can come loose into the airstream. How you deal with the separated oil is a whole 'nuther debate.

I'm sure there are installations that are problematic, but I've not come across one personally.  Most of the crankcase vents I've dealt with are in the nose of the crankcase and the routing of the hose back to the firewall typically drop a little as the hose makes it's way aft which means that a little oil in the tube always drains aft .... and drips on the hangar floor.  As you said .... even engines in great shape may drip.
This will be my second encounter using the accessory case for the vent .... my O-360 in my Pitts was the first .... but the inverted oil system routes all the excess back to the tail.

Speaking of which, the Grummans have a 'whistle hole' on the tube up inside the cowl to prevent freezing over the tube and blocking the vent.  I don't think that's a common practice on the Vans vents for whatever reason.

Only Continental engines have the vent on the nose of the case, AFAiK. Lycomings use the accessory case, and they like to blow overboard oil that is above a certain amount. It is easier with the Continentals to have an uphill run of some distance to condense the oil back out of the blowby stream. My planes with Lycoming engines typically did not drip from the vent after shut down. But they did ensure that the belly had a fine mist of oil. If it weren't a common problem, there would not be so many "solutions" on the market.
