What is the difference between Single Phase and Three Phase Electrical Power?

Single Phase and Three Phase–explained. AC power is “alternating current” from negative to positive 60 times per second, also termed as 60 cycles or 60 hertz. The simplest way to understand phasing in electrical power is to think of a bicycle. A bicycle with only one pedal could be considered single phase-120V. When the one pedal is rotating down that is your positive phase, when the pedal is going up, that is negative phase. Add a second pedal and now you have two separate “hot” sources of power or single phase-240V. While one pedal is going down, the other is going up, alternating the current between the two hots, but it’s still single phase since only one phase is doing the work at any give time. If you add a third pedal to the bicycle, you now have three “hots” and three phases doing the work.

How long does it take to setup the equipment?

Setup time depends upon many factors. There are several questions you should ask yourself. How many pieces of equipment does your project require? What utilities are available on your site? How far are the utilities from the equipment? How much modification will the utilities require if any to run the equipment properly? Is the ground where the equipment will be placed, dry, compact and level? Simpler jobs with one or two pieces of equipment generally may take a few hours to a full day to setup. While more complex jobs generally may take a few days or up to a week or longer to setup.

How much space is needed to setup the equipment?

Mobile kitchens and support trailers range in size. Generally the lengths of our units are between 24 ft. up to 53 ft. The widths of the trailers are generally 8 Ft. It is important that your site has enough available space to maneuver and position the units. Again, dry, compact, and level ground is required. Also clearance above the trailers is required. A maximum height of 13'6" is needed for most units. If your project requires multiple units, be sure to take this into account when calculating your spatial requirements.

What mobile kitchen and equipment is the best for my project?

There are a number of factors that need to be considered in determining what equipment is best for you. Some of these factors include your menu, the volume of meals served per meal period, the number of people in your kitchen staff, the duration of your project, available dry/compact level ground on your site, your available refrigeration, freezer and dry storage space, and your budget. Rest assured, we will taylor a mobile kitchen and/or support equipment solution that's best for you.

What permits are required in order to use a mobile kitchen for my project?

Permits differ in each state, county, and municipality that you are operating within. You need to contact your Local Health Department, Fire Marshal, and Building Department. Let them know of your project situation and they will let you know of any special requirements. Generally, you will have to apply for a permit and be subject to an inspection after equipment setup.
