Hot Water From Waste Heat

Hot Water From Waste Heat-Posted By: J.D.

For sake of clarity parts shown are minimal. 'A' - is the gas stove ring burner.

Around the burner is a copper piping at a diameter such that it just touches the outer edge of the full flame.
The piping has an inlet port and an outlet port. The inlet port is fed via a throttle valve from the cold water supply.
The outlet port leads to hot water storage tank situated above the height of the cooking apparatus.

You can get water at about 70 degrees Celcius For 'FREE'.

This is certainly not my original idea but perhaps a little adaptation of an idea posed by a colleague.

At the cost of a little 'ugly' looking cooking apparatus (but worth it when it comes to a restaurant kitchen), one can get a huge volume of hot to near boiling hot water just from the wasted heat of the gas ring burner.

Your comments about feasibility and suggestions for improvement are welcome.
