Just got my shiny new Atlas Copco fully featured screw compressor delivered today, and the question raised before buying it was our lack of a neutral in our 3 phase box on the wall. I recall a neutral appears about 4 workshops up from us in one of the workshops near the main supply. Never been a problem before for our machines, but this compressor has a built in drier that I think uses single phase, so I assume it takes one of the 3 phases, and neutral for this supply. Now, there is a (Wink, Wink ) a neutral lurking in the single phase ring main circuit nearby. Without getting into all the headache stuff of wiring regs and the like, would using this neutral be a possible solution to the problem ?
