This invention relates to means and a method for cooling the walls of combustion chambers or of other highly heated cylinders or containers. The invention is designed to replace or supplement the usual means of cooling by water jackets or by other cooling applications externally of the cylinder, as such external applications have been found impractical under very high temperature conditions and particularly when used in continuous combustion apparatus. It is the object of my invention to provide means for cooling a combustion chamber or similar container by injecting a cooling fluid directly into the container and adjacent a wall or walls thereof. A further object is to inject the cooling fluid at such angles and in such manner that it will be evenly distributed as a screen over the surface to be cooled and will effectively limit the rise in temperature thereof.
