This device comprises an energy source supplying a gas flow to a set of fixed nozzles arranged in an annular member within which are coaxially placed movable sleeves, respectively provided with gas passage openings or ports. Means are provided for positioning these openings so as face the inlets of the nozzles, in order to divert the gas flow towards one of the nozzles.
