There's no need to run it several times because the likely result is 
already known. No gas will ever build up in the one without CO2 
injection. For a gas to diffuse out of solution it needs an air to water 
interface. If you run a reactor with no air being injected, there is no 
air-water interface for gases to diffuse.
