I have a client who has two shirt printing machines. One 240V@22Amps and other 240V@30Amps. Can I treat this installation like a dwelling cooking unit branch circuit calculation?

Pull a 50A feeder and use #8 or #10 taps for two different 30A plugs.

PS. machines are heating units to dry the ink on the shirts.And this is in a residential garage.

Please give code sections.

Thanks
Edward

It seems that 210.21(B)(3)would prohibit this.

BTW,
Are the loads continuous and/or simultaneous?

I would worry about zoning. Not too many towns allow businesses like this in a garage, and if they do, now you have a different occupancy to worry about. In a non-separated mixed occupancy there may be issues with the fire rating for the building. The BO or FM may require fire rated sheetrock and/or sprinklers to keep the garage business from burning up the house.
Electrically, I would have to re-compute the loads on the service. Do you need to upgrade the service for all this additional equipment?

Redy,
Loads may be continuous and on at the same time.

Earlydean,
I do not need to upgrade the main panel. I was going to use a 50A braker from the subpanel.
