After looking at some random suppressors online, its looks like some of the rimfire ones do come apart but most of the larger rifle caliber ones are fully welded, and to clean it you just submerge and let it soak. So I guess you could permanently attach it and stick the thing barrel down in a bucket to clean it out.
I know how it works, and the fully welded ones are the cheaper ones...well not all of them, but it seems the better one come apart. Anywho, there is no real need to clean them anyways. I seen them with 30,000 plus round through them and they still work just fine
