The idea behind the catch tank is to stop oil going into the inlet side of the engine. On a stock factory car there is usually a engine breather which comes out of the rocker/cam cover and feeds back into the air intake somewhere. This is fine for normal cars but with a high performance car you tend to push the car harder building more crank case pressure and pushing more oil out of the breather, this then goes into the intake system which hinders performance and gums up vital components.
With a catch tank this oil is stored in the tank and doesn't make it back into the engine so you can maintain engine performance.
