Numbers look OK to me.

Can you send me some Pasties? I could send you some Pepperoni rolls in return.

80-95% of the time my preference is to use soft starts for starting only applications and to save the VFD's for speed control.

What kind of breaker?
What environment? Wet? Dry?
What ambient temperature?
What type of insulation on the conductors?
No mention of overloads.
Details, Ernie, details- You know how I am.
