Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/124619
Kind Code:
The present invention relates to a pipe connector comprising: an inflow connector having an inflow channel for a fluid formed therein such that a fluid flows in from one end thereof; an outflow connector coupled to the other end of the inflow connector, an outflow channel being formed in the outflow connector for the fluid that has flowed in through the inflow connector; and an acceleration part provided on an inflow channel and an outflow channel for a fluid, which are formed by coupling the inflow connector and the outflow connector, so as to increase the flow velocity of the fluid that has flowed in through the inflow channel, thereby ejecting the fluid at a high velocity toward the outflow channel. Accordingly, the present invention provides a technology capable of instantly generating warm water without requiring a separate preheating time. The present invention is advantageous in that a high-velocity fluid is ejected to a low-velocity fluid staying in a friction space, thereby increasing the type of friction between water molecules; the resulting vortex increases the surface friction at the boundary layer of the pipe wall, thereby heating the fluid inside the conduit without any separate heating source; warm water is generated by converting the kinetic energy of the fluid into thermal energy, instead of increasing the water temperature by a heating source such as a boiler, such that water temperature can be increased more instantly without going through a preheating process; and warm water can be generated continuously or intermittently, thereby substantially reducing elements of energy waste.
