Yes, the US has 220v circuits. Welders, ovens, electric clothes dryers and some other big appliances require them. They are not 3 phase. That is uncommon in a residence. My uncle brought 3 phase into his little machine shop as he had a 3 phase mill, lathe, etc.

I just used an existing circuit in the garage that was for a welder and replaced the male plug of my Swedish extension cord reel so I could use all my Swedish tools. My wife had some Swedish aestitician (hell if I know how to spell that one!) equipment that required 220, so I joined 2 110v circuits together to create special outlet for her stuff in her downstairs workroom.

So far, no fires!
