I use a very powerful Iwaki pump for my CIP system (1/3hp or 1/2hp , can't remember off hand). I have gotten into a habit of giving the vessel a 1/4 turn every so often to ensure full coverage. I'd like to see a cross section of a sanke CIP system in action. Perhaps they've designed each piece to work as a system to ensure a completely cleaned interior.
I'm guessing that the shape of the bottom is crucial. The keg bottom is dished while the carboy bottom has a bit of a hump.
