Abstract : The patent relates to a device whereby a coolant fluid is supplied to a permeable nose tip of a re-entry vehicle from a coolant reservoir through a flow control valve. The valve has a spool type piston and sleeve valve wherein the orifice area changes as a function of deceleration. A second piston and sleeve valve is provided in the output of the flow control valve to maintain a constant pressure difference across the flow control valve.
