Troon plumber David’s invention is boiling hot
Posted by keelynet on October 9, 2010
David Osborne developed the Jompy boiler in his spare time. And over the last year, it has made a massive difference to the lives of people in the developing world. The affordable device kills bacteria in water, making it safe enough to drink.
The Jompy works by taking in cold water through one pipe and swirling it around tightly coiled copper piping placed on a fire before sending the steaming hot water out of another pipe. And while the Jompy is working, the coiled piping can be used like an oven ring.
David, 36, explained: “The Jompy takes the cultural norm of heating water in a pan over a fire, and significantly speeds up the process. “By boiling water around four times quicker than traditional methods, it will enable households to use their fuel more efficiently, ultimately reducing household wood smoke and positively impacting on the environment.
“Plus the solar attachment is a way to introduce the concept of renewable energy to very traditional, conservative communities who may be resistant to abandoning the age-old tried and tested ways.”
