Each leg will see 1.73 of the equivalent single phase load of each element.
So, with 240v and 6000w elements the math is thus...
A single 6000w element on 240V draws 25A
With the 3 phase setup and 3 - 6000w elements wired in Delta - each phase will draw:
6000/240*1.73 = 43.25 amps per phase at 240v.
