Converting 3phase MIWE Condo to single phase for residential use
I need advice. I sell artisan loaves at the local farmers market. I started off using my home oven but it took me 9-10 hours of continuous baking. then I broke the glass on the door and began to bake in a MIWE deck oven (2 decks) which cut my time way down. The oven's owner is closing his shop and has given me the chance to buy it.
if I do buy it I would want to install it in my home because 1) I have photovoltaic panels and generate more power than we use so my power is almost free; 2) no landlord to pay; 3) I can bake non hazardous foods in my home and sell at the farmers markets legally; and 4) a cottage industry bill is moving through the legislature and hopefully will be law in one or two years. Other background information: as I live in hawaii it is next to impossible to get good used deck/steam ovens without paying huge shipping costs. there are probably only one or two other bakeries that have deck/steam ovens and they are competitors; the commercial kitchens that are rentable do not have deck/steam ovens.
MY QUESTION: the oven is three-phase, but my home is single phase. The manufacturer says the oven can be converted using a phase converter. But posts on various sites say this may not be easy to do and that electricians may not want to do it. DOES ANYONE HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH CONVERTING OR ADVICE FOR ME?
Thanks in advance!
