About 24 hours after starting, remediation is complete. Your high value remediated extract, distillate or mother liquor is ready for collection. 

The reactor is positioned high enough that a 5-gallon (20 liter) bucket comfortably fits under the reactor drain valve.   Open the valve and remediated material will readily flow into a bucket or other container placed underneath it.  Once the reactor is empty, run a clean cycle and the system is ready to remediate the next batch.
