No, WasteMaster can run continuously. During periods of low usage WasteMaster will automatically turn down its settings and will only operate at the level required to process the amount of waste being loaded.
However, if the system is ever powered down due to disruption of the power supply or the emergency stop button is pressed, it will need to be manually started. This consists of pressing two buttons once you ensure it is safe to do so. For safety this cannot be done remotely or automatically.
