On site now: have a 20A 120V single phase dedicated circuit with 10AWG conductors. Off that are 2 12A nameplate rated pieces of equipment connected with 12AWG flexible cord drops.

They are tripping the breaker would it be 2008 NEC compliant to increase the ampacity to 30A?

What's the equipment? What's the current draw? Why is the breaker tripping?
