People also ask, how many amps is a 10kw heat strip?
As Dennis states, “10kw” heat strips are often actually 9.6 kw. 424.3 states that fixed electric space heating equipment SHALL be considered a continuous load, so with no other loads considered you have 9.6/240 x 1.25 or 50 amps.
Additionally, how do you measure heat strips? Here's the formula: Volts x Amps / 1000 = Heat Strip Kw. Measure actual voltage and actual amperage at the heat strips, and then apply the formula. Next, multiply the measured Kw by 3413 to get true heat strip BTU. Then compare the true Kw BTU to the equipment or system delivered BTU to find field efficiency.
