Grinding media has recommended characteristics, involving the shape, size, and composition, should include:

The shape of grinding media is typically a sphere. This form is highly dense and does not chip easily. There are two shapes of grinding media that are most efficient. These include the ball shape and the cylinder rod.

The grinding ball should have a smaller diameter, but still large enough to get the best results. It can be more accurate when breaking down other material. The size of forged steel balls will generally range from 0.75 inch to 5 inches in diameter. The size of grinding rods will generally be between 1.5 to 4 inch in diameter. Also, the length should be a few inches shorter than the mill length. The size needed for each job may vary.

The grinding material needs to be able to withhold high grinding methods and not wear or chip quickly. The grinding material should have a greater density than the material that is being ground. The material of the grinding media may vary, as well.
