The invention relates to the field of production from the bottom of reservoirs silt soils, in particular sapropel.

There is a method of extraction of sapropel, including excavation of sapropel by dredging, transporting the slurry through a pipeline to the field evaporation and drying in the tank, condensation and freezing, milling the top layer and drying to 50% relative humidity, cleaning and storage piles, loading and delivery vehicles [Fomin A.I. Technology for local production of fertilizers (sapropels). - M.: Higher school, 1969].

The described technology requires large capital costs to get 700-800 thousand tons per year is necessary to construct a settling basin, an area of 450 hectares, slurry pipelines, canals, roads, to deliver the dredgers, to bring electricity. With this method a significant loss of sapropel. For the accommodation of settlers required the exclusion of a significant part of agricultural land in the lake basins - the most fertile lands. The return of a large number suck water back into the lake unacceptable: as these waters enriched in nutrients and can contribute to the development of processes clogging water algae.

There is also known a method of extraction from the bottom of reservoirs sapropel and other loose soil, including its notch with the help of mobile extracting the aqueous Assembly and hydrotestosterone, moreover, the notch produces fan-shaped benches from the periphery to the center, while the center is a point on the shore. The device includes a vessel for loading excavated material, the drive and installed on a floating base gruntmanis, screw propulsion and screw the working body associated flexible sleeve with containers for loading excavated material, the base machine and the drum for winding flexible hose with re-platform, with the capacity to load the excavated material, and the drive and the drum for winding flexible hose with re-platform placed on the base car, and a flexible hose reinforced cable elements (patent RF №2023160 C1 IPC IS 50/00, AS 45/00, 1994).

The disadvantage of this device is the low reliability due to the fact that the removable module is moved by means of screw propulsion, and the reverse movement is effected by traction drum, the supply of sapropel on the beach is a screw working body and a piston pump through a flexible hose wound onto the drum. The device is not designed structurally.

Also known installation, consisting of pontoons mounted carriage, Sakala, transport by pipeline. Mounted inside Sakala transport pipe with a rotating end and intermediate supports Central in the scrap contains screw pumps, which are mounted on the lower end of the shaft and below the intermediate support, a blade boot device pump lower end of the shaft with the console installed on the shaft end mill and vibromaster. Vibromaster made in the form of plates mounted on the levers, with the possibility of rotation around axes that are installed on the pump casing above the boot device from tilting relative to the horizontal to an upright position within the envelope of the channel formed by the rotating cutter. The loading device consists of two blades. The bottom is made in the form of a disk having a spiral surface and rigidly attached to the shaft, the upper blade is in the form of a strip having a ruled surface, forming a straight which, lying in a radial plane and passing through the axis of rotation of the screw and the circle equal to the diameter of the screw pump has a variable angle of inclination to the axis. The strip is attached to the shaft by means of a plate lying in a plane perpendicular to the axis of rotation and inclined platform, which is a continuation of the spiral of the screw pump [RF Patent №2061867 C1 IPC IS 45/00, 02F 3/88, 1996].

The disadvantage of this setup is the extraction of sapropel with a specific, fixed depth vertical screw device in the form of round holes on the bottom of the reservoir, therefore, the low air permeability is the capacity of the installation and only partial extraction of sapropel.

The aim of the invention is to develop a simple, practical method of extraction of sapropel from the bottom of reservoirs area of 10 ha with the use of the efficient installation.

This is achieved by the fact that produced by a special machine sapropel then is loaded about the craft in the floating containers, which are then in conjunction luxirous boat to the dock, then go up using the winch on the overpass on the truck up, where are emptied by tipping vaporised to remove bottles, stones, vegetation in a special container and cleaned the sapropel is collected in a storage bunker, ed consumers vehicles.
