In production situations where glazes or other products are ball milled beyond the standard 200 mesh (74 microns) size of many production raw materials, this test is an excellent indicator of consistency of the process and of contaminents that could cause problems. For example, in the tile industry, a residue of 2-4% is normal. For even better melting and fewer defects a company might target 1-2% residue.
