WHY CHOOSE FRAM
We all know how important oil, air and fuel filters are for the running of any vehicle, so when it comes to choosing filters for your customers’ vehicles, by using FRAM Filters, you’re choosing an industry leading product, with great quality and competitive pricing.
FRAM products are designed, engineered and manufactured in-house, with multimillion-dollar test rigs giving them the capabilities to test OEM- ISO/SAE/JIC specifications.
FRAM Filters surpass the following ISO manufacturing standards:
|ISO 2949||Element integrity|
|ISO 4548-12||Filtration efficiency|
|ISO 19438||Filtration efficiency|
|ISO 4548-4||Hydrostatic burst pressure|
|ISO 4020||Pressure impulse fatigue|
|ISO 4548-5||Hydraulic pulse durability|
|ISO 4548-9||Inlet and Outlet anti-drain back valve|
|ISO 4548-2||Element by-pass valve characteristics|
|ISO 4548-1||Resistance to flow|
|ISO 5011||Dust holding capacity and efficiency|
For FRAM, it’s the constant research, testing and development that helps to keep them up to date and relevant in the advancing technologies within the industry.
It’s what’s inside the filter that really counts. The key to filter performance is the quantity and quality of the material used in the filter media. FRAM ensures that all incoming raw materials meet their quality standards before production. The filter media is made of cellulose fibres, synthetic materials or a blend of both, to provide an ideal balance of efficiency and flow, allowing the correct flow of oil, air or fuel to pass through to meet the needs of the engine.
Using a blend of cellulose and synthetic microscopic fibres, the media inside FRAM Oil Filters provides a perfect balance of dirt-trapping efficiency and dirt-holding capacity. For engine protection, anti-drain back valves prevent damaging ‘dry starts’ by holding oil in the filter when the engine is off, and for today’s longer drain intervals. Also engineered for use with conventional or synthetic oil, these filters are the go-to product for drivers in stop-and-go traffic, pushing their vehicles with towing and driving in extreme weather conditions.
Constructed with advanced features to protect engines in strenuous driving conditions, like driving on dirty, dusty roads to idling in heavy traffic, the advanced media technology that has been stringently tested protects engines in these conditions. Meeting the OE fit and function requirements, FRAM air filters are engineered to prevent contaminants from entering your vehicles engine.
