Are you sure the page number is right? 'cuz page 248 actually shows a "process" of 7 thought-moments, not a single thought-moment..

Each of the four Paths is attained only once — thereafter, the Noble Ones can attain Fruition consciousness whenever they wish. The attainment of the Path is very brief, but the attainment of Fruition may continue without interruption for hours or even for as long as seven days and nights.
See Purification by Knowledge and Vision for details.
