Discuss 9kW 3ph Immersion Type Heater run in Single Phase in the Electrical Talk - All Other Countries area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi, I received a 9kW 3ph heater from a friend from india, i was hoping to use this in steam production for a distillation project i am working at. I rewired it and made the 3 heating element in parallel connection. Now my problem is the 6 gauge wires i am using are always heating up, also some outside connection smokes. what do you propose i do.? also, what will the effective current of this heater be in single phase?
