Indcand-heat is transfer of light bulb heat via Heat-Pipe
to heat water.
Spiral rap the base end of a section of tubing to snugly-
fit either the bottom or the top bell, of a standard indcand-
escent bulb. The Pipe then extends vertically through and
into a container. The heat from the bulb boils water in Heat-
Pipe and thusly transfers energy to water in container. This
concept could be especially useful in restaurants, hospitals,
and other places that operate long hours. A 60 watt bulb will
deliver about 10S BTlT/Hr. Maximum temperature attained is
146°F. Illumination from bulb is not affected.
Light fixture designers could very easily design fixtures
incorporating the Heat-Pipe system.
