This invention relates to burners of the type
having a refractory lined combustion chamber in
which practically complete combustion of a combustible gaseous mixture is accomplished and
irom which heated products of combustion are
discharged at a. relatively high velocity through
a restricted outlet in the form of a high temperature gas stream.
It ls an object of the invention to provide an
improvement in burners of this type. particularly to obtain better distribution of the high temperature heating gases produced by the burner.
I accomplish this by providing a hollow partitioned body to form two combustion chambers
whose restricted outlets are closely adjacent to
one another so that work during its movement
past the outlets at close range thereto is iirst
heated by one high temperature gas stream and
immediately thereafter is heated by the other
high temperature gas stream.
Further. the combustible gaseous mixture is
supplied to the inlets of the combustion chambers
from separate hollow manifolds to each oi' which

bers l2 and I4.
dependently controlling the supply of combustible
gaseous mixture toeach combustion chamber, the
One end oi’ a hollow open-ended metallic shell
i! is removably secured at 26 to the base mem
5 ber Il. The shell I6 envelops and snugly holds
in position a hollow refractory body 2l having
a partition 22 which divides the interior thereof
into two combustion chambers 22 and 26 extend
ing alongside each other. As shown, the hollow
l0 refractory body 2| comprises a number of refrac
tory parts formed of any suitable material. such
as silicon carbide or beryllium oxide, which are
united together in any suitable manner, as by
a high temperature air-hardenable cement, for
i5 example. In order that the refractory body 2l
will be rigidly held within the shell I9. a layer
26 of air-hardenable cement may be applied to
the'exterior surface of the refractory body bei'ore
the latter is positionedinthe shell.
20 The combustible gas mixture delivered to the
inlet chambers or manifolds I2 and Il liows
therefrom through apertured screen members 26
and 2l which may be formed of beryllium oxide,
i'or example, and positioned at the inlet ends of
25 the combustion chambers 23 and 24. In this way
the combustible gaseous mixture is subdivided
into a multiplicity of small jets. In burners of
character and physical properties of the high tern-
