That's exactly my point. For example, in my house, I have two phases. 
Each one, to neutral, gets me 120 volts.

If I use both phases, I get 220.

The equipment might be "single phase 220", but I need two phases out of 
the electric panel to get it.

Sorry, I may not have explained myself well enough ;)
