The final dimensional combined treatment with the application of an electric field by a tool in the form of unbound metal pellets of complex profile components used in aviation, rocket and space technology and in the oil and gas industry is considered. Such parts include impellers and the flowing component of the turbo-pump units, augers, impellers, where there are sections of variable curvature with limited access of the tool to the processing area. It is shown that the combination in a

As a result, it is possible to increase the action and durability of important units of aerospace engineering and oil and gas equipment, and also to expand the area of technological use of the combined treatment method with unbound granules to component parts that are not accessible for processing by an integral tool. In the method under consideration, a universal granule tool is used which does not have a constant geometric shape and is capable of being delivered to the treatment zone through openings into parts whose dimensions are commensurable with the cross-section of the granules. * Corresponding author:
