so....say you want to melt 50 kilos of r-41 rod in a gas fired free standing pot,
its a 350ish lb, what temp. would you melt? I will heat the rods to around 1000F
before charging. my first guess is around 1900, think thats too hot?
and no, I do not want to make my own color, it needs to be r-41.

I think more like 1700F and bring it up from there. It will cord up particularly since it will not be easily stirred. If the pot has had anything besides clear in it ever, the color will change.
