The secrets of more productive, safer abrasive blasting will be the focus of a free upcoming webinar presented by JPCL and SSPC.

“Achieving Efficiency in Abrasive Blasting” will be presented from 11 a.m. to noon EST March 14.

Webinar: Achieving efficiency in abrasive blasting

Abrasive blasting is a controlled erosion process where productivity can be measured by how much area is blasted, by what time is expended, and by how much abrasive and energy are used. This webinar will cover all of these metrics, together with a description of control system types, impediments to productivity, fine-tuning a blast system, suggested system set-up, and safety considerations.

The presenter will be Bill Nelson, of Axxiom Manufacturing Inc. Nelson has 22 years of experience in the abrasive blasting industry and has conducted multiple blasting practice seminars and demonstrations.

Participants may register here free.

Registration, CEU Credits

This program is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series, which provides continuing education for SSPC recertifications and technology updates on important topics.

SSPC is an accredited training provider for the Florida Board of Professional Engineers (FBPE), and Professional Engineers in Florida may submit SSPC Webinar Continuing Education Units to the board. To do so, applicants must download the FBPE CEU form and pass the Webinar Exam, which costs $25.
