I never take my wire melter over 2160 and melt all types of cullet very easily. going higher is needless and foreshortens the life of the crucible and the elements. elements aren't really rated to sustain heat above 2200 for any long length of time. I think we hashed this out many months ago on some other threads.
I can get a year out of my elements most of the time and much more than that out of my crucibles.
