The invention relates to mining and can be used in borehole hydropobic minerals. The invention can find application in construction during construction through wells underground storage facilities for liquid and gaseous products.

Known downhole jetting unit containing: Central pulp-raising the column is rigidly connected with a flowing part of the hydraulic ejector, shank, made in the form of the tubing installed concentrically pulp-raising the casing and rigidly connected with it, with the location of the upper end of the shank above the flowing part of the hydraulic ejector, external pressure column, mounted concentric with the column shaft for rotation and axial movement relative to the latter, hidroelektra nozzle communicated with the cavity pressure column through the cavity of the shank and jetting nozzles communicated with the cavity pressure column, the inside pressure of the column at its lower end with a ledge with a beveled upper edge, and the upper end of the shank provided with an annular funnel-shaped cuff that is installed with the possibility of continuous interaction with the external surface of the pressure column and an inner surface with surface polipovidnami columns in the interval ledge pressure number is Ni (see USSR author's certificate No. 1382959, Ál. 4 E21C 45/00 1988).

The performance of the unit is determined by the percentage of ore material in the slurry is transported by airlift. The more the head of the working body affects the layer, the more intense mixing of the crushed mass of non-metallic material with a water to air mass. In the known Assembly, a working body of the shank does not provide intensive stirring of the fine fraction of the extracted material. As a result, the percentage of the latter in the slurry is low, and this leads to poor performance of the unit.

This disadvantage is partially eliminated in the borehole gidrodobychnyh the unit (see patent No. 2169839, 7 AS 45/00, 2000).

Known unit essential features is the closest device to the claimed invention and adopted us for the prototype.

Known for well hydroporinae unit contains high-pressure becoming rigidly connected with the nozzles jetting and hydraulic ejector, is rigidly connected by the suction chamber mounted on the lower end of the rod with Windows in the form of longitudinal slits, Central pulp-raising column mounted inside the rod for axial movement relative to the latter, an internal cavity which soedenjaetsja internal cavity of the high pressure rod through the nozzles of the hydraulic ejector, the above-mentioned nozzles are equipped with sharp pins, and the bottom end of the rod along the longitudinal axis installed additional nozzle jetting from the nozzles to the outlet of the working fluid.

The disadvantage of using known Assembly is the low performance is due to the fact that mining material not intensively mixed and not crushed, as without moving the nozzle jet drills out in the rock deep hole, resulting in a percentage of the crushed pulp production material is reduced, which leads to performance degradation. For intensification of comminution and displacement of the mining material in the known device it is necessary to use lifting and handling device, which also reduces efficiency and increases energy consumption.

An object of the invention is to improve the performance of the unit by accelerating grinding mining material and increase of their content in the pulp.

The technical result is increased productivity and efficiency downhole hydroporinae Assembly.

This technical result in the implementation of the invention is achieved by the well known gidrodobychnyh unit, including high-pressure becoming, Central pulp-raising column, the plant inside the high-pressure column, an internal cavity which is connected with the inner cavity of the high pressure rod through the nozzles of the hydraulic ejector. In the lower part of the high-pressure rod installed nozzle jetting from the nozzles, to which is rigidly attached additional nozzle with a suction chamber having pulpotomy window. The jetting nozzle connected with high-pressure rod for rotation about its longitudinal axis and provided with nozzles, curved opposite to the direction of rotation and suction chamber is equipped with purposesonly with Windows located radially to the suction chamber and directed in the direction of rotation of the giant.

The claimed technical solution is different from the well-known fact that the nozzle is mounted for rotation about its longitudinal axis, the nozzles are bent in the horizontal plane in the direction opposite to the rotation of the giant. The rotation of the giant intensifies the process of grinding and shaking of mining material, resulting in a percentage of its increases in the pressurized pulp. Location Windows pulmonaria radially to the suction chamber allows to intensify the process of intake and discharge of the pulp, which ultimately improves the performance of the unit.

Conducted by the applicant's analysis, vkljuchajuwih the search for patent and scientific and technical information sources, and identification of sources containing information about the equivalents of the claimed invention, has allowed to establish that the applicant had not discovered similar, characterized by signs, identical with all the essential features of the claimed invention.
