Can I use bearing balls for planetary ball mill?

The grinding effect is depend on many factors, not only the balls.

But there are some factors need to be considered,

First, the hardness, normally, the hardness of balls and jars should be higher than materials.

Second, the contamination issue, especially when high energy or long grinding time applied. All materials of balls will generate some contamination, so using the bearing balls will not generate something new or unusual.
