A device that uses 50% or more of the circuit’s capacity requires a dedicated circuit and a single outlet, not a duplex. They started requiring single outlets for washing machines, disposals, ect a code change or 2 ago. Therefore, sounds like you need a single 20 amp outlet on your circuit since it says a 20 amp circuit on the device and it draws 2400 watts.
