If you have 3 phase power, it wont work unless you have a convertor to convert it to single phase

Theoretically yes, but it would be a great deal of work and would draw a little over 6 times the current it did when on three phase power.
It would entail replacing the fan motors, connecting the 6 windings of the 3 phase primary in phase and in parallel. Plus adding a 115 circuit " tapping off half of the 220 single phase" incoming power for some aspects.
The control board would also need modifications as well. because it uses 3 current sense transformers and you would need to rework that circuit to compensate.
The short answer if you were wanting to set one up for home use- just invest in a "Sidekick" They did have a 240 volt single phase version, and if you consider the time invested to change something over that could trip the 200 amp service breaker, if you value your time- the money for a Sidekick would be well worth it.
If you want proof- open up the primary side of the Deltaweld and look at all of those connections you have before you- you would not be using 1/3 of them, and you would need to take the time to make sure the 6 windings were in phase otherise the transformer burns out- it may burn out anyway because the current draw increase beacause all the low impedance windings are now in parallel on a nominally lower voltage- just the potential of fire from that arrangement makes the money spent for a Sidekick to be considered "cheap insurance."
