Question on 50 amp 120 volt circuits
coffeeroastersclub
Hello. I am thinking about designing an infrared roaster that will need a 50 amp 120 volt circuit. I refrain from 220 volt as I have no experience in wiring such and frankly it is over my comfort level. Does anyone here have any experience in the plug end I would need? Outlet required? Any other particulars that I should be aware of?

Thanks,
Len

How many tons are you intending to roast if planing to use 6kW ? BBQ grill
IR, if directly on beans, is the most economical roast method I know... I am using 900W to bring 600 grams into FC in 10 minutes.
DIY: TO based IR to bean 750g
Moded commercial: Dieckmann RoestMeister, Nesco, popcorn.

50 AMP , 120 V ? unless this is wired straight to the panel , you do not have any wire in your walls capable of handling this load . 220V is the only way your getting this load.

Even in EU, the standard house is wired for 16 Amps at 230V.
For more than 17A = 4kW, you should apply for 380V triphasic circuit.

Capacity would be 20 lb. green. How many watts do you think then to roast?

It would be wired straight to panel dedicated circuit.

"Recreational vehicles having a power- supply assembly rated 50 amperes as permitted by Section 18-27-551.42(d) shall have a 3-pole, 4-wire, grounding-type attachment plug rated 50 amperes, 125/250 volts, conforming to the configuration shown in Figure 18-27-551.46(c)."

And you need about AWG8 wiring.

Hi Len,

Sounds like an interesting project. I've not heard of many infrared to bean projects over around 5 lb capacity.

As mentioned by renatoa, direct to bean IR is very efficient and I'm guessing it follows the typical economy of scale in needing less KW/lb as you move up in batch size.
In looking over the Digirosto pro 2500 specs which is a halogen lamp based all-IR design, they're utilizing 6.4 KW for 5 lb batch so I would guess you would be safe in planning on 15 to 20 KW
