Media selection is based on the finest of particle required and viscosity of the product being milled. The smaller the bead the greater number of beads in a given volume and the greatest potential for yielding a very fine particle. With higher viscosity products the smaller bead may not be possible to use.
New advances in ceramic grinding media provide many manufacturing benefits and justify the higher bead cost. Higher density, increased hardness, smoother surfaces, and uniform bead size provide long bead life and low wear on equipment. These characteristics will help when milling with smaller diameter beads, typically less than 1 mm diameter.

The performance in all media mills is dependent on using the correct media type, size and mill loading. New high performance beads have not only improved mill efficiency but also reduced wear on the beads and equipment. Improved performance and long life easily justify the higher costs associated with these higher performance beads.
