The aquamation process takes anywhere between 6-8 hours or 18-20 hours. Timing ultimately depends on the operating temperature of the equipment that is being used. The process takes place at approximately 200-300°F or 150°C.

In contrast, a flame cremation typically takes 2-4 hours and at a temperature between 1600-1800°F.
