[Histonet] Grossing Hood Velocity Requirements

We purchased Thermo's Gross Lab Senior grossing stations.  A rule of
thumb is for these to pull at 450-500 CFM.  If you purchase the hoods
that include the fan motor, these are factory set to this.  We hooked
ours in to the hospital ventilation system so it was a bit trickier to
achieve this velocity.  We currently are pulling at 550 CFM per hood.

I am looking to purchase a grossing hood and am in need of the
requirements for fpm's (feet per minute).  Can anyone tell me where to
find them? Thank you, Ann
