Yes exactly. The sc is half filled with oil and gets very hot spinning at 12000 rpm. When that happens it can blow seals but if you are lucky just one of the plastic plugs blows out instead. Then you know its time for a catch can. I could have plumbed it back to the main engine catch can but i run a slightly different oil in each and wanted to keep the systems separated in case one fails.
