Need advice on barb placement for ccv tank

Finding the can I want to use for my ccv closed system is still going on. When I find the one I want to use, I got some questions. First do I need a filter/breather on the top of the can? If I get a rectangle or square shaped can, should I stagger the inlet and outlet barbs for the hoses across from each other or have them straight across from each other?or does it matter as long as they are across the can from each other? Thanks

I've even thought about putting the inlet barb on the middle of the side of the can and on the same side on the top of the can the outlet barb forcing the oil/air to basically do a U turn inside the can. Hoping this would make the oil/air travel through the filter media more. Does this make sense?

Actually, just underway in the fab of my can. It's going to work out great I think. I got a moroso catch can (black plastic) that comes with a bottom drain and a filter on top. I used a step drill bit to drill ou the original hole for the 3/8" nipple out to 1 1/4" to accept my new 1" barbed nipple. The location for the original hole is on the top of one of the sides. I got a threaded male nipple that'll thread into the new 1 1/4" hole I drilled out very snugly. Since the hole is on the top of the can and I wanted the vented gas to "filter through" the stainless scrubbing pad on the inside of the can I epoxied a copper 3/4" 90 deg elbow inside the threaded male nipple pointing down to the bottom of the can on the inside. This is so the gas will flow through the most scrubbing pads as possible instead of flowing straight through the filter in the top of the can. I had to file some of the 90 down so it would fit inside. I took some pics but as soon as I figure out how to post them up I will have them on here so you guys can see what i did.

Need advice on barb placement for ccv tank

Is there an extension on that copper elbow that goes down to the material in the can? If not it will just flow right back to the return and you won't filter much oil

No extension. I don't have any room to get my fingers in there. I don't have a return, just an inlet. It's an open system with a catch can. It's not going back to the intake. My plan was to filter the haze before it goes into the atmosphere.
