Cygnet’s cleaning process begins by identifying each container with all pertinent information that our customers would like us to track or statistically chart. Once entered into our database, Cygnet will be able to provide our customers with continual updates regarding DOT & UN31A regulations to ensure compliance on each container. Once the container is placed on our automated line, all valves and components are removed, disassembled, cleaned. Once the container comes out of the patented totally enclosed automated cleaning cycle, all components are reinstalled. The container then receives a rinse of filtered deionized water and dried. The container now receives a final rinse in solvent to obtain a sample for quality testing.
























Cygnet requires each container to be free of all debris and particles. Each container must pass a particle count, which is performed after the final rinse. Residue from the final rinse is placed under a microscope to ensure each container meets Cygnet’s quality cleanliness standards. All containers are then pressure checked to ensure there are “no leaks”.
