Melting Guidelines

Melt at 2200 deg F (1204 deg C) in 50 pound charges. Wait until surface has leveled off, then charge again. Soak at 2100 deg to 2200 deg F (1144 deg to 1204 deg C) for 2 or more hours. Ramp down as slow as your scheduling permits to your desired working temperature. Common working temperatures are 2075 deg to 2125 deg F (1135 deg to 1163 deg C).

"Squeezing" the glass 50 to 100 degrees below working temp will help facilitate a seed-free melt.

Note: Different furnace types and sizes will use different procedures. Many blowers charge and soak at lower temperatures; turnover time will then be longer.
