The invention relates to the field of hydraulic mining, namely, to designs of shells for hydraulic borehole mining (HBM) solid minerals, and can be used for extraction of solid materials from subterranean formations through wells.

By now developed a significant number of different designs of shells for the SRS solid minerals (see, for example, autospid. The USSR and patents of the Russian Federation№№374453, 602685, 662717, 739240, 762339, 819345,825966,899967, 964150, 1002585, 1065601, 1113549, 1265341, 1427071, 1449662, 1461947, 1489139, 1553686, 1608346, 1620631, 1682574, 1700249,2111359, 2113591, 2169839, 2272142, 71377 and other

Despite significant differences in the structures of the shells on the above autospid. and patents, all of them include the following main units: column vodopada pipes, jetting device, polipovidnami the hydraulic ejector and polipovidnye column. The variety of designs of shells can be explained by differences in the design of the above-mentioned main components, as well as the inclusion in the composition of the shells of new units and structural elements. These technical improvements aimed at speeding up the process of erosion of the formation of minerals, increasing the efficiency of the removal of slurry from the excavation chamber, increasing the depth of development of deposits of minerals, the formation of the extraction chamber with the required size is Rami and shape and so on, and so ultimately all this leads to an increase of technical and economic indicators of the SRS minerals.

At the same time, many designs of shells for the SRS have significant shortcomings, and that is the reason for their continuous improvement. This needs to take into account differences in geological conditions of occurrence of a layer mineral, and physico-mechanical properties of minerals and host rocks, which also significantly affects the design of shells for the SRS.

Over portobanco on the string of pipe is installed with the possibility of axial movement of the level regulator. Pokerrule element is installed at the upper end of portobanco. The packer is set at the lower end of the casing which seals the well. Through the packer carried out the duct.

From the local "Device for hydraulic borehole mining of minerals" under the patent for useful model №71377 (IPC ES 45/00 BI No. 7, 2008). This device was also taken as the prototype of the claimed invention. Device patent # 71377 consists of interconnected tubular rod with the input and the bottom tip. The lower end includes a lateral jetting nozzle, polypopylene open and hidroelektrane device consisting of hydraulically interconnected housings, underwater tubes, the separation cavity, hydroelevating nozzle, an inlet chamber, confuser, mixing chamber and diffuser.

The length of the bottom wall is larger than the distance between the casing Shoe and the sole of the productive formation.

The disadvantage of the prototype is a small performance improvement of productive strata by HBM.

The task is to improve the performance on the development of productive strata by HBM by creating working conditions lateral jetting device in unflooded face excavation chamber.

The problem is solved as follows. In accordance with a prototype device for SRS useful and is diggin consists of interconnected tubular rod with the input and the bottom tip. The lower end includes a lateral jetting nozzle, polypopylene open and hidroelektrane device. This diffuser hidroelectrica device through outlet pipe hydraulically connected with the space between the casing pipe and the rod, and in the bottom part of the lower end set end jetting nozzle, hydraulically connected with the separation cavity. Moreover, the length of the bottom wall is larger than the distance between the casing Shoe and the sole of the productive formation.

According to the invention the upper part of the casing is equipped with an external support ring and vozduhopodajushchej pipe, rigidly connected with the casing, and in the lower part of the casing made holes for the supply of compressed air in the excavation chamber. Thus between the casing and the casing bottom wall, above the openings for the compressed air, the o-ring.

Further, the invention is illustrated in the drawing, which shows the design and layout of the device.

The proposed device consists of a casing 1, output 2 and connected by a tubular rod 3 input 4 and the bottom wall. The upper part of the casing is equipped with an external support ring 5 and vozduhopodajushchej pipe 6, rigidly connected with the casing to the Onna, and in the lower part of the casing with holes 7 for compressed air in the excavation chamber 8.

Moreover, the length of the bottom wall is larger than the distance between the Shoe of the casing 7 and the underside of the productive layer 22.

This device operates as follows.

Preparation for borehole hydropobic.

Drill hole 23 at a depth of 2-5 m, then drill a smaller diameter to the roof of the productive layer 22, in which the lower casing 7. In the upper part of the casing is mounted the outer ring 5 and the intake pipe 6. While the outer ring 5 overlaps the well bore 23 of smaller diameter, and the lower end of Vozduha the surrounding pipe 6 communicates with the annular space. Next, pump the cement slurry 24 in the space between the borehole wall 23 of larger diameter and the casing 7 so as to seal. Then the hole deepens to the bottom of the productive layer 22. After well prepared for hydropobic, in her place pipe becoming 3 and the lower end so that the side jetting nozzle 9 is located in the zone of the reservoir 22. Thus the bottom end surface is mounted so that the output of the outlet pipe 19, when working at full capacity of the productive layer 22 was located in the well below the casing shoes casing 7. Enter 4 tip via the pressure hose connected to pump unit, and the output 2 of the casing pipe supply discharge hose.

The process of hydraulic borehole mining.

The working fluid under pressure through the input 4 is supplied via pipe rod 3 lateral jetting nozzle 9 and simultaneously through an underwater tube 72 in the separation cavity 13 where it is divided into two streams - one of them is coming to the end jetting nozzle 20 and the other end to hydroelevating the nozzle 14. Through the side jet nozzle 9 is hydrodynamic destruction of rocks. Further, due to ejection, created by the jet of fluid, formed in hydroelevating the nozzle 14, ruin the health of the breed comes through polypopylene window 10 in the receiving chamber 75 and through the confuser 16, the mixing chamber 77, the diffuser 75 and outlet valve 19 to the column casing 7 to the surface. Thus vozduhopodajushchej pipe 6 serves compressed air through the well annulus 23 and the holes 7 enters the extraction chamber 8, creating an air cushion of high pressure. In the compressed air are created working conditions lateral jetting nozzles in unflooded space, which leads to an increase of the radius of the erosion of rocks of the productive formation. In addition, existing in the excavation chamber 8, the air under pressure, has a positive effect on the stability of the roof due to the additional backwater and reduces the inflow of formation water into the well.

Leaving the end jetting nozzles 20, a jet of water makes crushing large pieces of rocks formed during the destruction of the productive layer 22 side jetting nozzle 9, and raises with the bottom-hole zone of the well by means of the upward fluid flow is large and heavy particle species, dilutes the pulp. Due to this facilitated the flow of pulp in polypopylene window 10.

If necessary, increase the depth of testing the productive formation and facilitate the transportation of large and heavy fractions of rocks on the surface, you can apply airlifter is the W. In the annulus between the tubular rod 3 and the casing 7 descends vozduhopodajushchej column with a mixer (not shown).
