1. Why sand a surface?
- Cosmetics
- Cleaning and decontamination
- Modification of the state of a surface
- Advantages and disadvantages of wet & dry blasting

2. Operating principles
- Constitution of a helium detector
- Analysis cell

Use :

1. Types of substrates that can be treated and the risks of deterioration

2. Mediums
- Existing mediums
- Their action on different materials
- The combinations between different mediums

3. The impact of parameters on the state of the surface and the wear of the medium

4. Preparation of parts before micro blasting (protection)
- Presence of critical zones on the parts (Joint housing,threading, etc.)
- Types of protections (Rubber templates, Tapes, caps and screws, seals, adhesives, PVC and vinyl)

5. Ergonomics of the workstation

Micro blaster maintenance:

1. Daily maintenance of the equipment
2. Frequency of replacements of wear parts
3. Frequency of changes in medium depending on the materials to be processed & contamination
4. Waste management

Installing a blaster:

1. Required infrastructure
2. Environmental and safety aspects.
3. To choose the right equipment (sizing, lifespan and maintenance)
4. Estimation of the installation costs
