2 pole breaker
is a 2 pole breaker with two handles that are tied together and marked 30a on each side a 30 amp breaker or 60 amp?

2 POLE/30 AMP.

used for 240v loads mainly

As Techy said, 30A. Each 'leg' is protected individually up to 30 amps, but if one leg exceeds that, the handle tie makes them both shut off.
