Case Study: “Finally, a Tank Cleaning Machine That Works Every Time I Use It”

Owner/winemaker Mike Conway of Latah Creek Winery, Spokane, WA, has been practicing his winemaking art for 30 years, and during that time he has used at least six different tank cleaning machines, from spray balls, to inferior rotary impingement machines, and finally the Gamajet. Prior to purchasing the Gamajet, Mike was consistently dissatisfied with the cleaning of his stainless steel tanks, ranging from 1200-5000 gallons, up to 12 feet high, and 6.5 – 9.5 feet in diameter. The spray balls were inefficient and time-consuming, often taking 2 -3 hours to clean each tank. The other impingement machines kept breaking down and the manufacturers were not responsive to the problems Mike was facing with their machines. Finally, Mike received a marketing piece from Gamajet that peaked his interest, so he gave them a call.
Mike explains, “I was admittedly a little gun-shy to try yet another tank cleaning machine; however, I was impressed that Gamajet would customize the machine to my particular tank and application. Additionally, the people at Gamajet assured me it would work, or else I could send it back. I was very impressed with Gamajet’s level of service, support, and responsiveness, as well as their level of confidence in their equipment. I decided to purchase the Gamajet PowerFlex.”


Since Mike purchased the PowerFlex, he has significantly reduced the amount of time spent cleaning his tanks. Each tank takes less than 40 minutes to clean from start to finish, which is half the time it took when using inferior impingement machines and a whopping 78 percent less time compared to spray balls. On top of that, according to Mike, “The Gamajet is the first tank cleaning machine I’ve ever used that works every time I use it. I always know I can rely on my Gamajet to quickly and thoroughly clean my tanks. It’s a true workhorse.”
