Anyone know where I can find published Beta Ratio info for specific filters? Can't seem to find this info anywhere, so I am assuming that maybe they do not publish?

Industrial filters. Don't think you will find Beta Ratios for the off the shelf oil filter

This is just a plain ol' "short" Chevy filter (orange can)

Since it's a "budget" filter, I don't think anyone really cares.

I will say I have had really good luck with the Tough Guard.
The Fram Ultras are pretty amazing.

Wix / Napa usually publish their betas.

If you don't find it on the site, I would call their support. Fram's support are very good about giving you additional information that wasn't printed on the web page that was marketing their particular filter---at least for the passenger car filters I've called about.

EDIT: OK I just reread and saw you were asking about published info. Regardless, their support staff still might be able to tell you.

95% filtration efficiency (beta = 20)
FRAM Group testing of average filter efficiency of PH8A, 3387A, and 4967 or equivalent FRAM TG or XG models under ISO 4548-12 for particles greater than 20 microns.

Information is located on the PH30 page. Link below. You do have to click on Features Benefits.

The beta is adequate. The most important feature of an oil filter is that it doesn't fail.

Thanks. I guess I missed that.

Looks like the PH30 orange can has the same efficiency as the WIX 51069 (95% @ 20 micron)
