I do not have direct experience with your query. Beads have a binding capacity that can be found in manufacturer specification sheet and quantity or number of transcripts that are depleted can be estimated. Using twice the estimated amount is a good starting point.

On the subject of rRNA depletion there are other products which are more cost effective:

1- Lexogen RiboCop (works by hybridisation of RNA to probes and binding probes to beads similar to Ribo-Zero Gold)
2- RNaseH based degradation product from NEB
3- Clontech SMARTer products with kit included RiboGone (RNaseH based) reagent. These products have a considerable time-saving advantage as well because they have ligation-free workflow
4- Post-cDNA synthesis depletion workflows
