Some of the best full-flow engine filters on the market perform at a capture efficiency of 50 percent at a particle size of 10 microns and above. That’s a beta ratio of 2 for those of you keeping score, and these are considered "good" in terms of full-flow engine filtration. In comparison, a beta ratio of 1,000 would be considered "good" in terms of industrial hydraulic filtration. Why is there such a performance difference?
