If you look really carefully in the photos on the website, there is 
actually now just such a valve- but the diagram is still the 
ultra-simple version without one- I haven't gotten around to updating 
the diagram yet as it , in general, 'works' in the simplified version. 
You're right, though, I think the glycerol draining pump isolation 
valve might be a good idea regardless.

 I called it the pump isolation valve in the use instructions I posted 
last week, which are designed for the more advanced (read: more 
valves!) versoin of the reactor- which is what the photos show. Good 

If it is not clear from the Appleseed photos, this valve might be seen 
in the other similar reactors at www.veggieavenger.com/media: "Jai and 
Sean's reactor" has it as does "Tankenstein"
