I don't recognize Paragon TC-2.
Intermatic cross reference does not have that model number either.
Paragon sent e-mail last month saying they were no longer making timers and parts, except for defrost timers. Your water heater timer is not defrost timer.
Here is a wide selection of water heater timers, electro-mechanical and digital:
Manuals and wiring diagrams are shown for most products on page.
I recommend simple 240Volt Intermatic WH-40 for price and reliability. Drawback is minimum 1 hour on-off.
Or Intermatic T-101 for 120Volt heater or T-104 for 240Volt heaters sold at Lowes.
Intermatic trippers and motors are available and interchangeable, and are made of steel.
Some new timers are made with plastic parts:
GE 15207 is universal 120V 240V and sold at Home Depot.
Tork has new universal electro-mechanical timer, TU-40 for 120 and 240 applications

Paragon 8145-20 is a 240VAC (2 phase) timer. I doubt you will be able to find a 3 phase type timer.
I would suggest you use this timer as a control and purchase either contactors or relays rated to handle the 3 phase load.
