A proper grinding process requires the balls to be able to roll freely among the material. The peripheral speed of the grinding jar is a major parameter in this. Excessive speed will make the centrifugal force exceed gravity, causing the grinding material and media to stick to the inner wall of the container. This tipping point is known as the critical speed.
Depending on the product and desired processing, the optimal grinding speed lies between 50 and 70% of the critical speed.
