    Default Is this kiln 1 phase or 3 phase?

    I can’t really make out the pic of the plate. An anyone help? I’m assuming as 5.5 kw then 6mm^2 cable with 32 MCB would be able to run it (like an oven). For home use.

    it will do either, on 3 phase you need three phase lines plus neutral, so a 4 wire system (you can also do 5 wire three phase that has a separate earth). On single phase it's going to draw a lot of amps, 23 on 240V so you will likely need to hardwire it to the fuse box.

    Ok thanks. Yeah so I’m imagining running a direct 6mm cable straight to spare on fuse box with 32amp breaker.
