Hello Takue and welcome to the forum.

You know Arrastres, Chilean mills, and Huntington mills are types of pan mills.
A Hardinge mill is a type of ball mill that was around in the days of pan mills.

I give you a link to 2 old research papers answering your question in detail when there compare test results of a Hardinge ball mill and a Chilean or pan mill

The ball mill consumes around 30% less power.

The ball mill has proved itself to be a much superior grinding machine as it produces around 50% more particles in the sizes of 60 to 200 mesh.
