Thread: Three phase to normal

  1. #1

    Three phase to normal

    Evening , has anybody converted a three phase chiller (Lorry body ) to Normal 240volts ?
    I have the chance of one but it's running on three phase electric .
    Can it be done ?
    If it can be done does it cost much ?
    Thanks in advance
    tom

    You can buy three phase to single phase inverter, check the well known auction site

    Only for business use I think Bob, for personal use just plug and play.

    For 3 phase to single phase conversion, you just disconnect 2 wires in the plug!
    You want to convert FROM single phase TO 3 phase using an inverter. Quite easily done. Maybe 150. You need to get the wires the right way round or the motors will run backwards.

    Be a bit more careful with 3 phase - there's 415V there...

    Think you'll find he wants to run 3 phase equipment from single phase supply.

    Yep - you suggested a 3 phase to single phase inverter - he wants the other way round, which I've described

    True, but I meant a single phase to three phase inverter . You don't need an inverter for 3 phase to single

    Thinking on it a bit - I'd recommend going to a supplier who can talk you through choosing the right inverter - You might pay a few quid more, but they help you determine exactly what you need.
