392.13 (b) deals with Ampacity of single conductors in tray.
#1 laying side by side Copper 75% of table 310.69 , Covered (6 ft or more)70% 310.69
#2 Single row space of conductor in between =100% of table 310.69
#3 Conductors bundled (3 in a bundle A-B-C-phase) and a space of 2.15 x conductor size between = 310.67 100%.
Question Can bundles be put side by side???

I feel the Org. 30 inch and bunded with spacing is proper . Looking for Imput .
