The invention relates to the oil industry, in particular to the technique used for the study of formations during oil production.

All known technical solutions devices for sampling in the well containing the ballast and the receiving chamber, have mechanisms that control the opening (closing) input shut-off valve, as well as hydro - or pnevmoobrushenija brake reservoir fluid collected in the receiving chamber to maintain a single-phase state of deep samples. For all their common disadvantages.

Famous deep sampler containing chamber for sampling, equipped with spring-loaded valves interconnected by a castle, and mechanism for closing the valve, consisting of tanks, piston, valve and dogs, holding the flaps in an open position during the descent into the well (Oil industry, 1971, No. 1, S. 52-53). The disadvantages of this device are considerable dimensions, the small amount of useful camera and the necessity of lifting the sampler when sampling at 20-30 m from the point of sampling to actuation of the mechanism for closing the valve, the result of which can be the ingress of wellbore fluid into the intake chamber and the changing composition of the sample.

Known multi-well fluid sampler, consisting of a number of sections, including pramousquier and receiving the locking valve (ed. mon. The USSR №682638). In the unit after the sinking of the scheduled interval to produce a separation of the tool from the bottom to the height of about 0.5-1.0 m In this rod block samplers rises, moving relative to the housing samplers up until the inlet valve of the sampler is in alignment with the hole in the hull, you will be sampling. Further sealing of the sample is performed by the tool on the bottom. The collected sample is sealed and prepared for sampling the next section.

A disadvantage of this device is that the sampling is performed on the subjective decision of the operator on the feasibility of sampling at a given depth by command from the surface.

Known multi-samplers borehole fluid, lowered into the column containing the number of sections having a receiving chamber and receiving the locking valve (ed. mon. The USSR No. 575413, 1154443). The disadvantage of these devices is the low reliability of samples to be taken.

Famous deep sampler, consisting of a cylindrical body in which multiple sampling modules, including prosoprano chamber, the separator piston, valve mechanism and the filter with magnetic separator module of the hydraulic drive, comprising a cylindrical chamber, the ballast chamber, the piston and electron gnity valve, electronic module and the rod-plunger Executive valve mechanism (U.S. Pat. Of the Russian Federation No. 2280160).

The disadvantage of this sampler is the complexity of the design and most of its long, poor accountability sampling in multiple cameras, the lack of reliability of the individual components of the device and the lack of accuracy of the received information.

The closest technical solution to the proposed sampler is deep sampler that includes the ballast chamber, the actuator with the control module, the basic and additional sampling chamber, equipped with medium-dividing pistons, the hydraulic resistances and valve assemblies (Pat. RF 2054541). Additional and main sampling chamber is provided with each of its piston and its ballast chamber. A disadvantage of the known device is the complexity and unreliability of sampling at a given point wells, small volume samples were taken.

The technical challenge is to simplify and increase the reliability of components, reduction of the dimensions of the sampler, improving the quality of separation of the samples, the reliability of measured data.

The technical problem is solved through the use of deep sampler that includes the ballast chamber, the actuator with fashion the LEM management basic and additional sampling chamber, equipped with medium-dividing pistons, the hydraulic resistances and valve assemblies. Medium-dividing the piston has a compensation tube that connects podpisniye cavity of the sampling chambers between themselves, with the flow rates set at the end of each tube.

The authors found that it is unacceptable to divide on the surface of the selected sample into several parts because of the loss of its representativeness. This problem was solved by 3-chamber of the sampler, in which all podpisniye cavity connected in one volume and the sampler has one ballast chamber.

The drawing shows a schematic diagram of the sampler: 1 - valve node, 2 - medium-dividing piston, 3 - hydrocortisone, 4 - sampling camera, 5 - compensation tube, 6 - feet-washer, 7 - actuator, 8 - gauge, 9 - ballast camera, 10 - control module

The principle of operation of the sampler

Before descending into the borehole medium-dividing piston 2 is allocated to the left (under the scheme). The space to the right of piston filled with the working fluid is liquid or gas. The working fluid is under pressure and prevents movement of the pistons. When you receive the command from the control module 10 to the actuator 7 of the internal and the latter begins to periodically open and close the channel, connected with the ballast chamber 9. The hydrostatic pressure of the well and the pressure drop of the working fluid piston 2 begins to move to the right. The flow rates 3 compensation tubes 5 contributes to the gradual movement of the pistons 2, i.e. without interference each other. The sampling is carried into the sample chamber 4 through valve block 1. The rate of sampling is controlled by a level sensor 8. The capacity of the ballast chamber 9 equal volume podporchenyj cavities. Stop washer 6 limits the movement of the piston 2.

The device is maintained in the process of sampling some time. Then begins the ascent and subsequent recording of the recorded information and the time of sampling. The camera with the sample sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Deep sampler that includes the ballast chamber, the actuator with the control module, the basic and additional sampling chamber, equipped with medium-dividing pistons, the hydraulic resistances and valve nodes, wherein each medium-dividing the piston has a compensation tube that connects podpisniye cavity of the sampling chambers between themselves, with hydrocortisone installed on each end of the tube.
