Default CAD clean-up on Salome: removing edges between tangential faces

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a way to remove the edges between tangential faces using Salome tools, so that these edges are not considered during the meshing process (I'm working on a cylindrical shape, see attached images).

Basically I must be able to mesh a geometry where some edges are very close to each other (less than the minimal cell size).That is why I want to remove some of those edges “manually”. Otherwise, small and distorted cells are created between the edges that are very close to each other (see 'zoom' image).

I tried Union Faces but it had no effect on the geometry. Is there another way or a workaround to remove the edges between tangential faces, or a way to skip them during the meshing operation?

Thank you in advance for your help.
