Trivia question... Does anyone know the significance of the numbers used by WR Grace to label the these four formulations of Raney Nickel?

W.R. Grace and Co. Raney =AE

2800, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

2400, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

3202, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

4200, slurry, in H2O, active catalyst (Aldrich)

After a few hours researching to no avail, I am really curious,
