Subject: Low-flow hoods

Dear Colleagues,

I am doing the annual update of our Chemical Hygiene Plan, which specifies face velocity rates for fume hoods. However, our newly remodeled Organic Lab has energy-efficient, low-flow hoods. What is an appropriate value of face velocity to specify for such hoods?
