    WHY????? did you move where there is NO 3phase service??? its going to cost you so much more to run this machine on single phase current,because of your increased motor size if you can find a motor that large(single-phase) if this is the case find a gasoline engine 18+H.P. it will be just as cheap to operate

I have a Ingersoll Rand Compressor model# 2545E10V 10 HP,3 phase and I would like to convert it to a signle phase. would this motor here be good to go with and what other items will be needed to complete...


It might. Mounting holes match? Shaft diameter and adapter match? Power supply sufficient for 5HP motor? It's a big motor! You might get a better answer from the ebay supplier.

Wire 230 volt air compressor wiring diagrams


On 230 volts you have 3 wires 2 are 115 volt and the third wire is ground. As long as you hook the ground wires together correctly the other wires don't matter. Usually the ground wire is either white or green. The black wires are hot (115 volts).

I have an ingersol rand 2420n5 t30 and i want to convert it from single phase to 3 phase any help thanks


Hi robles212
To convert your T-30 to single phase you will have to do one of two things.
1. Change the motor to a single phase motor
2. Buy and install a "Phase Converter" to convert 3 phase to single phase
Please rate me

If you're running 3 phase, swap 2 infeed wires. If you're running single phase, look in the wiring diagram in the motor head for the wires to move.

Have a 3 phase compressor model vr5-8 want to know if it can be converted to single phase 230 volt and how


A 3phase motor cannot be rewired to run on single phase power. You need a phase converter. A 3-phase motor will only run on 3-phase power, and a phase converter will convert single phase power to 3 phase. Just google phase converter. There are two basic types, electronic and rotary. The rotary type are more powerful and efficient, but lot's more expensive than the electronic ones. Your only other option is to replace the motor with a single phase motor. Good luck.

I need a three phase wiring diagram for 8145-20 model timer.


8145-20 240Volt Paragon timer is not 3-phase.
Clock motor is 240V.
You need a transformer to convert 3-phase to single phase 240V to operate timer.
Then timer outputs can control 3-phase power using 3-phase contactors
Contactor below is 3 phase with 240V coil

I have a 3 phase electrical motor for my air compressor, How would i connect this from the air compressor pressure switch and towards the electrical source 120V? (for low volt)


If the electrical 120 volt source is single phase, the only way to run this motor is with a single phase to three phase converter. Best to sell the three phase motor and obtain a similar horsepower 120 volt single-phase capacitor-start motor (1750 RPM) for the compressor. You would also require a 3-phase pressure switch for use with the 3-phase motor. Hope this helps!

Can I change model 754 machine from three phase to single phase by just replaceing the three phase motors with single phase motors?


no you cannot. The cost to replace the dasher motor and compressor would be extreme. In addition, you would need to convert the controls from 3 phase controls over to single phase controls.

Those machines are designed for 3 phase power. If you could get the same components in a single phase version, you would spend more money economically than its worth.

Take the money you would spend converting and purchase a single phase countertop unit. They are made.
