Abstract : A filter-cooler is provided for use with a rocket motor to cool and filter highly aluminized hot gases from around 5800 F to around 2000 F. The cooled and filtered gases are then usable, for example, in thrust vector control mechanisms. A decomposable chemical coolant section is placed ahead of the filter section so that alumina present in the gases begins to solidify ahead of the filter and may be more efficiently removed.
