  • Busch Mink amperage draw question

    Hey there! Is anyone running a Busch Mink vacuum pump on single phase? If so can you tell me how many amps it is drawing? Mine is drawing right around 46 amps @ 208V and is tripping the overload protection which has a 43 amp maximum setting, within 5 minutes. The overload/start/stop circuit was supplied by CAMaster but sourced from Springer Controls (not Busch). Actual Baldor motor plate shows a rating of 36 amps, but it’s hard to get a clear answer from anyone on how many amps is considered “normal” for the system. I’m in contact with Busch but thought I’d see if anyone else has some real world numbers. Thanks in advance!
