How to compare a ball mill and wet pan mill in terms of energy consumption and efficiency in gold processing.

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.
