Shredder motor too much power?
I’m trying to gather the parts to build the shredder and I’m wondering if this is too powerful?
no its not to powerfull
you will need a gearbox to reduce the rpm but that is a good thing
and i see ph=3 it meens a 3 phase motor
so it will run on 460v do you have acces to a 460v power supplier?
Thanks for the response. I have single phase 240v so I would take it that’s not enough to power this thing. What’s the 208-230 before the /460? Also below there is an area that says useable at 208v?
i think it runs 3460 rpm @ 460v 3 phase
if you run is @ 208-230v (anyware in between) 1 phase it would be 1/3
but still good enough i guess
Hello Door- This is a 3 phase motor which most homes in the USA do not have. You will need an inverter and an electrician to wire it properly. You will also need a gearbox to slow the speed down to around 50-150 rpm depending on the materials and part configuration you will be shredding. Best of luck!
