Most commercial elements will run at about 12 AMPS if they are wire elements. That's likely of the top one as well. Rick is spot on with measuring the draw on each one.
Three elements typically will run under a 50 AMP breaker and likely under a 45 AMP one. Do pay attention to the connections between the elements, any limiting control and the service iwre feeding the thing. I would use a fiberglaass wrapped 10 gauge wire to make the connections along with split bolts. Don't rely on wire nuts. I have purchased the high temp wire on Amazon.
Where are we going and why am I in this basket?
